“People are happier after therapy than after getting a huge pay rise” $1,300 v $42,000 (or for the UK £780 v £25,000). £750 would get you more than 21 sessions with me, or 12-15 with higher-charging counsellors in larger cities perhaps. Normally people only need around 6 sessions on average – something that companies offer their employees to manage distracting issues that lead to sickness absences – and some people need more, some less, and some longer term – maybe monthly to maintain a level for a while until fully back on track. But few people with general mental health issues like stress or depression, anxiety and panic attacks, or self-esteem, even abuse maybe, need or have 20 sessions before seeing tangible benefits to their outlook, their physical health and a noticeable reduction in stress; even a visible, noticeable and at times dramatic level of happiness on show! (I can even tell someone’s last session when they arrive from the physical change in style and attitude!)
That would be just £140 for a lifetime of happiness, putting years of agony and struggle behind you forever!
Have a read of this article – it’s interesting, and true. Think about it – 12 hour days, high wages, buying and planning – or just being yourself, accepted and content, and naturally moving forward in your well-paced lifestyle? I have often said that ‘everyone should experience counselling at least once in their life’ – a chance to talk about themselves, better understand and see themselves from their own perspective rather than reflected by others and their agenda for their life …it really is enlightening!
