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.

At Thriveworks Counseling of Greenville, we’ll help you get back into the “flow.” Getting back into a state of “flow” may not be something you can manage on your own.

The only reason why my Family stopped going to see Ms. Dowdell is because I had to change jobs and at the time...Read more

my schedule would not allow us to continue services. She made sure my Family had a great transition to another Provider and that we had continuity of care. Now that my schedule has a little more flexibility, I am very thankful to be able to continue services with Ms. Dowdell who still remembers my Family’s history like we were just in her office yesterday (over 1 year ago)! She listens intently and never puts you down, and helps you understand your emotions and what issues and problems you may be going through in a way that you can understand but clearly. Personally, I deal with a lot of stress and being pulled in a lot of directions, and would when I felt as though my words did not make sense coming out of my mouth, she would know how to piece together what I was saying and not make me feel bad for being too vulnerable and made my therapy sessions a safe space to learn and grow from them. I am forever grateful for how she is helping my Family accept what we need to accept, change what we need to change, and heal from the root of our wounds; wounds I did not know were there. I highly recommend her.

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was...Read more

stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.
