Starting Increased happiness counseling

What is Increased happiness counseling?

Increased happiness counseling from our Thriveworks therapists in Peachtree City, GA guides clients in cultivating gratitude, resilience, and a deeper understanding of their own values and goals. The aim of increased happiness counseling is to empower individuals to lead happier and more fulfilling lives by promoting a greater sense of personal satisfaction and emotional equilibrium.

How does Increased happiness counseling work?

Therapists who specialize in increased happiness counseling can utilize a diverse array of methods, such as Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) strategies, mindfulness exercises, and the principles of positive psychology, to assist you in nurturing qualities like gratitude, resilience, and a deeper comprehension of your values and aspirations. The primary objective of increased happiness counseling is to empower you to live a more joyful and satisfying life, fostering an enhanced sense of personal contentment and emotional balance.

Is Increased happiness counseling conducted in person or online?

Increased happiness counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Increased happiness counseling last?

Some individuals may achieve their objectives with just a few sessions to gain insights and strategies for enhancing their happiness. In contrast, others may opt for an extended counseling journey to address deeper emotional concerns and establish lasting happiness and well-being. The frequency and duration of your sessions during counseling in Peachtree City is typically determined through collaboration between the client and therapist.

Need more help deciding?

Life can feel overwhelmingly sad at times. Every day, the news delivers the latest tragedy. Every day, people experience normal, ups and downs in their own personal lives. And yet, almost everyone knows people who are truly happy. They live in the same challenging world, but somehow, they hold onto joy in the midst of difficult circumstances. Pharrell describes them in his song, “Happy,”

Here come bad news talking this and that
Yeah, give me all you got, don’t hold back
Yeah, well I should probably warn you I’ll be just fine
Yeah, no offense to you don’t waste your time
Here’s why: Because I’m happy…
—“Happy”

When life is tough, how do some people land on their feet with a smile? Every blog, magazine, and podcast seems to have an opinion about how: try power poses, avoid certain foods, have enough friends but not too many, and on and on the opinions roll. The advice is usually clickbait, but it highlights an important point: people can increase their happiness.

For many years, mental health professionals believed that people had a fixed happiness range: they may fluctuate within that range but never exceed it. However, more recent studies have shown that happiness is more like a muscle: there is a base-level of strength that can be built upon and strengthened with time and exercise.

If it is possible for people to strengthen their happiness muscles, what exercises work and which are mere clickbait? Many people are turning to mental health professionals to help them know the difference.

The counselors at Thriveworks Peachtree City are seeing more and more clients who want to work toward a joyful, fulfilling, happy life, and our professionals have the expertise to guide each client toward the emotional exercises that can increase happiness.

Emotional Routines that Harm Happiness

Many people base their happiness upon factors that they cannot control. Did they get a bonus from their work? If yes, then they feel happy. If no, then they feel sad. Did their team clinch a spot in the playoffs? If yes, then they feel happy. If no, then they feel sad. Is the weather cooperating with their weekend plans? If yes, then they feel happy. If no, then they feel sad.

Any number of scenarios could be inserted into this equation: positive outcome=positive feelings, negative outcome=negative feelings. Unfortunately, most people have no control over the outcomes they look to for their happiness. Therefore, whether they feel happy or sad feels out of their control.

Without any doubt, people and circumstances play a role in happiness; however, they are supporting actors. The main character is always oneself, and the emotions, thoughts, and actions people control from within themselves.

While much of life is outside of people’s control, much is also within their control. Personal happiness may begin by finding personal routines that harm happiness. A few examples include:

  • Entitlement: Happiness often is the result of an active stance toward life. Waiting for unearned happiness to appear out of no where means people may be spending more days in frustration than joy.
  • Comparison: Looking to the side to see what others have or what they are doing is recipe for resentment or superiority, not joy. Happiness often comes from taking life on its own merits.
  • Blame: Excuses abound for why people are not happy, but blaming others or circumstances is a disempowering exercising. Instead, happy people draw on what power they have to create their own happiness—no excuses.

Emotional Routines that Stimulate Happiness

When it comes to happiness, small adjustments in people’s routines can add up to big differences in the happiness they experience. Mental health counselors often help people identify which adjustments are right for them, but a few examples of routines that stimulate happiness include:

  • Prioritizing thankfulness – Taking the time to list or name a few things each day to be grateful for can train people’s minds to see what is right, good, and beautiful in their lives.
  • Practicing mindfulness – Cultivating awareness of one’s feelings, thoughts, and sensations can allow people to be more in the moment, a key to happiness.
  • Striving toward a goal – When people set reasonable and achievable goals in their personal and professional life, they create a future that is exciting and rewarding.
  • Changing one’s mindset – Make room for growth. It is possible to learn new habits, feelings, skills, and knowledge. It is also possible to reframe experiences, seeing them from different, more positive angles.

Just as there are no short-cuts to building up muscles in the gym, there are no short-cuts toward building up happiness. Also, just as many people turn to a physical trainer to help them strength train, so are many people turning toward mental health professionals for help as they work toward more resilient, stronger happiness.

I have known Stephanie for over six years and worked side by side with her in a mental health center for part of that time. What comes across first and foremost is her caring and concern for her clients and her determination to see that their needs are met. She brings to her work a wide range of experience and training along with confidence that is reassuring and a comfort to those in distress. She can deal calmly with the most severe issues as well as with problems of daily living. In the time that I've known her, she has been licensed in three different states to practice in a variety of settings. If you come to her in a time of need, in a time of emotional upheaval or difficult questions, I don't think you will find a more competent or more caring therapist.
