My opinion #
In real life, I am highly opinionated about diverse content areas.
This area of my website is the safe space for me to broadcast my opinions.
No Secrets #
In a past life, I contributed to science and free and open source software, and I am proud of that. I continue to carry some of the same ethical principles forward as a counselor. Specifically, I reject secrecy in the sense that I have no paywall or subscription for my website content. I have and continue to put effort into clearly presenting everything that I have learned gratis.
Counseling ≠ Telling My Opinions #
As an IFS Practitioner, I attend to structure and process while maintaining indifference to content. I believe that a good counselor is extremely neutral ⚖️, to encourage the client’s inner system to lead. The illustration below is a metaphor:
- The rock balanced atop of the pile of rocks represents the client.
- The environment represents my emotional warmth and support.
- My job is to keep you, the client, well held and protected. 🏼
You should not hear any unsolicited opinions from me when I am working with you as your counselor. If you do think you hear me express an opinion, I want to know about it. 🙊
