Behaviour is basically the goal-directed attempt of the organism to satisfy its needs as experienced, in the field as perceived. Rogers, Carl (1951) Client-centred therapy
We do what we do to try and enhance our organisms needs. e.g. We go shopping so we can eat, because we get hungry.
This time of year is especially busy for me as a therapist. I see my diary become a sea of appointments to provide counselling sessions. For many it triggers emotions such as stress & loss. This impacts on people's relationships, which is one of the major prompts people to contact me. So Christmas Counselling - cheesy isn't it. So really it is just counselling and if someone uses this in the future you seen it here first Christmas Counselling ©. Anyway let's just stick with counselling, a place to get away from what's going on for a moment for you to focus on you and what you need to focus on, before you get lost and swept away with it all....
