Psyche is the Greek word for both butterfly and soul. According to Bullfinch's Mythology, Psyche is "the human soul, which is purified by sufferings and misfortuntes, and is thus prepared for the enjoyment of true and pure happiness. Psychotherapy can be a path not only to healing, but also toward fulfilling our highest potential.
The compassionate counselor realizes the importance of being fully present and displaying unconditional positive regard so that an individual, couple or family feels secure while revealing their deepest, darkest fears, anxieties, or perceived failures. When we face our fears and failures, it feels as if a burden has been lifted. New opportunities and challenges are certain to be immanent. We take heart & are able to proceed confidently toward our highest potential. Attaining greater balance, wholeness and wellness leads to inner peace. Such inner peace may be the most valuable achievement.
