Through my own experiences, I've learned that to be able to help others, you need to be honest. You need to respect others, their opinions, beliefs, needs and wants.
While studying for my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology (MACP) I became familiar with different schools of thoughts or "orientations" in Psychotherapy. It was then that I realized what was best suited for me as a therapist to practice when working with my clients. The more I learned the more I leaned toward the Humanistic/Existentialist theories or "here and now" as they're better known as. I decided on these orientations because I feel that in today's fast pacing life, my clients would want what I want, IMMEDIATE results, QUICK recovery, and HOPES of getting back to a normal and successful life as quickly as possible. Though I believe Psychoanalysis (digging out your past) is an essential part of the recovery in some cases, there are times when a faster mode of recovery is preferred.
