Many of us feel that there’s more to life than just the daily grind of physical survival, or even material success. Spirituality, core values, and deeper beliefs help to give our daily lives meaning, as well as supporting us in difficult times.
At Nugent Family Counseling Center of San Jose, Santa Clara, and Los Gatos, California, and Reno, Nevada, our team, under the leadership of Dr. Geoff Nugent, understands the value of spirituality in the lives of our patients. That’s why we offer specialized spiritual counseling to put you in contact with your true self and deeper goals in life.
How could spiritual counseling benefit you? Here are just some of the ways that spiritual counseling with a provider at Nugent Family Counseling Center can support your search for a better life.
How your spirituality informs your goals
We all have underlying values and beliefs about the way the world should be, and the right way for us to behave as individuals. For some, specific religions provide structure for moral and ethical beliefs. Others search out their own answers through meditation, research, or philosophy.
No matter what your spirituality looks like, it deeply informs your hopes, wishes, and goals. If your life choices don’t allow you to stay connected to and in line with your spiritual beliefs, you can suffer from mental and even physical health disturbances. You might start to feel like you don’t know yourself, or don’t know what you want.
Your spirituality provides a strong core or center to your life plan, life story, and lifetime goals. Getting in touch with your spirituality through spiritual counseling is often key to clarifying your own goals, and illuminating the right path to take in order to achieve them.
When you need spiritual counseling
You may have fallen out of touch with your spirituality for a variety of reasons, or you may be troubled by an unwanted sense of questioning or self-doubt. You could pursue spiritual counseling if you’re not sure about the role of spirituality in your life, or if you’ve been feeling like you’re on the wrong trajectory.
Spiritual counseling can be a part of your treatment plan for mental health issues like depression or anger management. Or, spiritual counseling may be a positive way for you to approach a difficult issue or decision, giving you space to fully understand your position, values, and goals.
In your spiritual counseling sessions, you can expect to talk with your provider about your concerns, ranging from philosophy to religion. You receive empathetic, respectful engagement that takes your mind, body, and spirit into consideration.
