You don't have to suffer from mental illness to seek help. Life is complex and
multi-dimensional, often confusing and conflicted. Distress too often comes with the territory.
When we’re distressed, and we’ve tried everything we know, we need outside help.
counselor provides an
“auxiliary mind,” so to speak. An alter ego. Someone to bring to bear, on your behalf, a range of knowledge
that you simply haven’t had occasion to acquire before. Someone to provide emotional balance that your distress prevents
your achieving alone. Someone to provide an objective eye on your circumstances that you can’t get on your
own, since you’re stuck inside them. Someone to help you sort out your troubles. That sort of help
begins from the knowledge that our troubles don't divide neatly into what's inside a person and what's outside. They don't
neatly situate themselves inside the boundaries of academic disciplines or professional turf wars. Understanding
your struggles and bewilderment requires flexible, wide-ranging intelligence. The best help comes from someone who does
not rest content knowing only one field or discipline, but who strives to know as much as possible across the soundest science,
humanities, and practical wisdom.
That's the sort of help you'll find with Bob Fancher at Life Therapy.
