Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Client-Centered Approach?
Client-centered therapy was coined by Carl Rogers in the 1940's with an effort to create a non-judgemental and accepting environment for clients to grow and heal. There is a considerable amount of focus on the client and the therapist takes more of an observant and understanding role. The therapist is to listen and understand without judging, making diagnosis, or assigning blame. The benefits of this approach is that many clients feel they have taken a more active role in their recovery and establish more responsibility for change.
How does Trauma-Sensitive Yoga work?
Trauma has a way of making us feel fearful, out of control, and disconnected from our emotions and bodies. When we suffer such a tragedy, it can be difficult to regain a positive sense of self. However, Trauma-Sensitive Yoga can help the mind and body reconnect in a healthy, safe and nourishing way. The Sanskrit definition for Yoga is "union" or "connection". Using a mixture of postures, movements, and breath along with meditation, yoga is a healing process which is aimed to help the mind, body and spirit reconnect. At Yogology, the use of yoga to combat traumatic triggers and memories is gentle in approach. Some common practices include chair or seated yoga, deep relaxation exercises, guided meditations, and various breathing methods.
Why go to a Therapist?
There are many reasons to seek therapy. Some people attend therapy after a crisis has happened. A crisis can occur whenever a person feels they are in danger, suicidal, emotionally unstable or if they can no longer view life in a clear, healthy way. Sometimes people seek therapy when they are feeling depressed, anxious, stressed, angry, or fearful. Couples attend therapy to seek help building better communication skills, reduce the amount of arguing/fighting, increase intimacy and trust, pre-marital counseling, and even divorce counseling. Families also partake in therapy to increase relationship quality, enhance parenting skills, discuss difficult topics, deal with loss of loved ones or family transitions, and to readjust or strengthen family rules. Not every person who seeks therapy has a "problem" per se, therapy can be a place to feel accepted, safe, and reflective.
