Flow Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Greenville, SC

Have you ever experienced a time in life where everything was in sync? Your personal life was balanced with your professional life. Your relationships were healthy and meaningful. You knew what you wanted in life and you knew how to get it.

Life had purpose. Relationships were fulfilling. Those times may seem like a distant memory. Today, you’ve lost your rhythm and you’re not sure how to get it back. If this sounds like your story, you’re not alone. Countless people feel the way you do. What’s the difference between them and you? It’s really quite simple: You want your life to “flow” again and you’re willing to get the help you need to make it happen.

What is “Flow?”

Flow is a state in which a person enjoys an activity so intensely and feels such satisfaction that he or she is completely immersed in that activity. To a degree, the person loses all sense of time and space, being fully involved and absorbed. A person in a state of “flow” is focused and engaged, yet energized by the task or activity at hand. Some might call this “being in the zone.”

Imagine that you’re running a race. You feel great. Your breathing is in rhythm. You’re muscles feel strong, not fatigued. Your pace is challenging, but consistent. You can feel the ground beneath your feet and wind across your skin. Every step is nearly effortless. You’re in the moment, fully engaged in running the race. This is “Flow.”

The world renown psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi (Me-High Check-sent-me-high-lee) first recognized the concept of “flow.” He states that people in “flow” experience:

  1. Complete involvement in what they’re doing – focused and concentrated
  2. Feelings of ecstasy – a sense of being outside of everyday reality
  3. Great inner clarity – they know what needs to be done and how well they’re doing
  4. Knowledge of the task, as well as their ability to complete it
  5. A sense of serenity – they have no worries about themselves/low ego
  6. Timelessness – thoroughly focused on the present – hours seem to pass in minutes
  7. Intrinsic motivation – the thing that produces “flow” becomes its own reward

How can I get back into the “Flow?”

Most people lose their “flow” when they allow distractions to overrun their lives. Distractions disrupt “flow.” They steel your focus and stifle creativity. Eliminating distractions in your life is one of the first steps to restoring “flow” in your life. Establishing balance is also key to maintaining “flow” in your life.

Thankful for Emily Gilliam!

ion. I thought I was handling it well until one day had a massive panic attack. I did my research and reached out to her immediately. She met with me the next day and helped my put a plan into place for recovery. The first time I met her, I knew I could trust her and she tailored my therapy and sessions to what I needed at the time and at each stage of progress. There were times I digressed and she helped me get back on track and we celebrated my small wins and progress together. I would recommend her to any friend or family member. I know personally, taking the first step to get help is an important one. I can confidently say she was a great first step for me and I know she's fantastic at helping others too.

my life where in my mind, I had nowhere to turn. I reached out and I had never done this before. It was extremely difficult to say to myself, “I need someone to talk to.” Not knowing who or where that someone would be. And so, I was introduced to Emily Gilliam. A stranger, a therapist, a counselor. I don’t talk as it is, but Emily made it easy as I spilled my circumstances, actions, thoughts, and beliefs to Emily in a comfortable and secure setting. And for over a year, Emily and I were able to get through my darkness, my tough time, my thoughts, my situation. I would not be in my better place right now if it were not for Emily or people like Emily that are in her profession. Emily and people like her are needed and I’m am very happy that our paths crossed. And if you find yourself in a dark spot, a dark place in life, and you have the opportunity for your path to cross into Emily’s, you would be in a safe, secure, professional, space. I do thank her every day, even though she may not know it, or may not know how important she is and was to me and how her help, advice, thoughts, options, and opinions that she gave me got me through my darkness. So, if this review reaches one person and that one person has the opportunity and good fortune to meet and talk to Emily, I would be happy for that one person, as that person would meet an excellent stranger, therapist, counselor, and maybe a friend. Thanks again Emily, I wish nothing but the best, CB.

is exceptionally skilled at what she does, yet makes each session feel effortless. I could feel she truly cared for me. She taught me practical coping mechanisms while also helping me discover who I was and why I should love every part of myself. I highly recommend Emily Gilliam.
