Welcome to A Counselor’s Observations

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

How to solve life’s problems is not always obvious. In fact, we often get “stuck” in life, mired down by our past, our experiences, and how we’ve always done things. While most of that works for most of us most of the time, it stops working when our life stops moving forward and instead goes into neutral, wheels spinning.

That’s where counseling and psychotherapy come in. They can often help a person get un-stuck in life, or offer solutions to problems in a way we just hadn’t considered before. A therapist or counselor can’t provide a person with the answers to their problems. But they can provide the tools necessary for a person to find their own answers.

I’m pleased to introduce, A Counselor’s Observations, a blog to help people better understand the solutions and coping skills available to them. This blog will seek to take concepts described in psychology and give real life examples of how these would work, and what you can do to manage them. It will also cover problem-solving, but based on more ‘text-book’ psychological research, not just some individual’s opinion.

Kylie Coulter, B.Psyc (Hons), Dip. Prof. Couns. has been an online therapist for 6 years. She has a Diploma in Professional Counselling and a Honours degree in Psychological Science in Australia. She keeps a regular blog at www.shrinkthink.net and she’s been writing a column on psychology for a magazine called Tweaking Madd.

Please provide a warm Psych Central welcome to Kylie!
