Friends vs Psychologists

This is not just an article that tells about what is the difference between a friendly (friendly) conversation from work with a psychologist.

I have collected the most common people's views of himself as a psychologist. All that is described here, I've heard a million times by acquaintances, friends. I am sure that my clients and friends, and colleagues also encountered such statements. So, let's begin...

- it came to me as something a neighbor-girlfriend after a row with his pious hubby, complain. Then I began over tea discussing all the men in our apartment house. And it turned out that her husband is not so bad. In short, the left neighbor happy. I and without the formation of another psychologist.

- Yes, only because "my husband just broke my lip, and a neighbor of the site already broke the whole hand" relationship with her husband is better not become. Because "I just insomnia, but a neighbor even panic attacks", my condition did not improve. Because "I do not feel happy, but girlfriend is thinking about suicide," my life will not be adjusted. In general, if it means to be a psychologist to compare the client with the starving children of the Third World - that yes, you coped with the task.

- I do not know, after talking with me many friends easier. I and without the formation of another psychologist.

Yes, only because "I uttered, cried, and then I feel better," lamented the situation is out of the loop iterations. Otherwise I would have confession decreased each time. So what?

I think you should do that, "I did not learn to make their own decisions and find yourself" tips and outs "to their problems throughout life. In general, if it means to be a psychologist to give a daily basis throughout the life of the client fish rather than a network for independent fishing - yes, you coped with the task.

How can we seriously, oh, we poor things, but we'll show them "- then yes, you coped with the task. - I do not know, I am able to maintain that no psychologist can not.

Instead of a conclusion.

Of course, we need friends.

  • Sometimes in a conversation with a friend, you can get an excellent psychological support.
  • You can complain to the vest, and a friend to hear her words that I want to hear at that moment.
  • It is possible for a man to talk to one another and feel the support because he has understood you.

But the psychological counseling is fundamentally different from normal conversation.

It is important to understand that all the answers to the questions tormenting us are inside us.

All exits from difficult situations within us.

  • If we could prevent the "near or far" disturb our comfort, we will find a way to fix it.
  • If you own or "with the help of others (parents, colleagues, friends, children)" we found the entrance to the problem, every way out of the problem situation, too, will find.
  • If something we really want, make sure you have the resources within us to achieve this.

The task of a psychologist - not giving away tips, not become your vest or another, can not live your life for you, is not a substitute for experience.

Psychology Objective: to give the tools to access your internal resources, and if some resources are not sufficient, then provide the tools for the development of domestic resources.

And then most of the problems you can solve yourself, and achieving the objectives will be interesting and productive, but most importantly - often already-psychologist (if you have learned to use their own instruments issued by a psychologist).
