We all have multiple relationships with family members, significant others, friends, and more. Sometimes, though, we recognize that improving those relationships means improving the one we have with ourselves first. Individual counseling focuses intently on the inner relationship, how it influences our self-esteem and interactions with others, and how our emotions can tell us what we don’t consciously realize about our behaviors. By building a strong and loving inner relationship through individual counseling, we can learn to be happy and confident in our true selves.
Building Your Inner Relationship
The state of our inner relationships can influence which of our personality traits are dominant. For instance, those who fear rejection may have a tendency to please. Those who wish to avoid chaos can become controlling. Those who need meaning can exhibit superiority traits, while those who wish to avoid stress may seek pleasure. In times of stress, our dominant personality traits can show more than others, distorting the underlying cause of our stress while affecting our relationships with family, friends, and significant others. When we seek help through individual counseling, we acknowledge that our inner relationship is not the positive influence it should be, and we commit to understanding why.
