Newton, MA— Coaching, Therapy, and Counseling
When you were a child, what did you imagine would become of your life? What were your hopes? Perhaps, you thought about your future job—being a cowboy, or a firefighter, or a teacher. Perhaps, you thought about your future family—playing wedding or family, naming each child you would have. Perhaps, you imagined the place you would explore one day—going to the moon or the Grand Canyon or under the sea. Children often have a refreshingly hopeful vision for their future. Perhaps, that is why adults so often ask them what they want to be when they grow up. Many of us lose our way from these childhood visions. Life is always harder than a childhood game of grown-up. Health problems. Challenges. Relational difficulties. Setbacks. It is nice to be reminded of hopeful things of life. But what if there were another way to recapture those childhood dreams? Maybe you do not want to be a cowgirl anymore, but you do want to have that hopeful anticipation about life—that life is good and enjoyable. Many people are finding their way back to optimism and control over their lives, and they are working with mental health professionals, like life coaches, counselors, and therapists, to do so.
“I’m on a constant path of self-discovery and change.
I’m trying to become a better person, a nicer person.
I love therapy—it’s brilliant.”
—Actress Julia Sawalha
Many people are like Julia. Their path of self-discovery and change is guided by a mental health professional, and it is often a path not just of becoming a better person but also of building a better life. Difficulties are guaranteed in life, but people always have choices in how they respond. Experienced life coaches, therapists, and counselors can often help people find responses that are healthy and that set themselves up for future success.
The mental health professionals at Thriveworks Newton have worked with clients who are facing a variety of challenges in life, including difficult diagnoses, relational tensions, unfulfilling careers, and more. Our life coaches, therapists, and counselors are walked that path of self-discovery with them, and working together, many have experienced personal and professional growth.
Why Pursue Mental Health Care?
All the potential mental health challenges that people could face could never be listed here. There are too many, and each has its own treatment. Despite the wide array of challenges and treatments, one element is almost always present on every treatment plan for every mental health challenge: safety. Everybody—every single person—needs a safe place in their lives. Everyone needs a place where they can be themselves, where they can share without judgment, where they can think and process without fear. Many people find that safe place in a counselor’s office.
Through therapy, counseling, or life coaching, many people are able to step back from the chaos of life. They can think. They can breathe. They can process. They can reorient. They can return to life refreshed and refocused. Skilled mental health professionals can guide that process. They can often equip their clients to find the skills or treatment they need to accomplish what they want to accomplish in their personal or professional lives.
If you have never been to counselor or therapy, you may be wondering what it looks like. Many people do. The professionals at Thriveworks Newton offer each client personalized care. The client often drives the goals and timeline of the therapy while our professionals offer guidance. In any given session, clients will bring up situations they would like to address. Situations like…
- Childhood abuse
- Marriage tensions
- Domestic violence
- Panic disorder
- Cannabis abuse
- Obsessive-compulsive tendencies
- Life coaching
- Anger management
- Psychiatric testing
- Sexual issues
- Career advancement
- Life transitions
- Divorce recovery
- Eating disorders
During each session, our professionals focus upon building trust and listening. Clients need to speak about what is happening in their lives, and they have as much time as they want to say what they need to say. As issues come out, clients and therapists are often able to work together, processing the event or situation, and finding a proactive solution.
