This is a sort of counselling “blog” to give you a flavour of how I work. You can find more information about me by clicking one of the links above. This blog was previously at http://www.pcrc.berkshire-website.co.uk where historical entries from November 2008 can be found.
What motivates you? It can be helpful to think about this, particularly if you are feeling “down”. That can sometimes be because the things that give us a boost have disappeared from your life, through no fault of your own.
Some people like to spend time on their own, others like the company of others. Perhaps this balance is wrong for you at the moment? Are you the sort of person who takes pleasure in helping others? Or do you like to feel free of responsibilities? Do you like to be in charge, to make your own decisions, or do you prefer it if someone else takes the lead?
These, and a host of other questions, can help you to think about whether you are getting what you need to motivate you; it is different for all of us, but if you understand yourself, you have a good chance of ensuring that your needs are met.
