Self-responsibility therapy may be the way to solve your problems quickly and equip you to solve other problems better, for life.
We are all blind to some aspects of our lives. Others can see clearly the areas in which we are without awareness. Almost always in therapy, the psychologist helps the client to become more fully aware.
How much does this lack of awareness relate to our problems? We all have a problems. When they are in an area of our lives where we have no, or limited awareness, it can be nearly impossible to address the problems by ourselves. We need someone who can perceive what is invisible to us, and help us to become aware.
People solve their problems when they know how to take self-responsibility
Over and over again, in psychotherapy, I have observed this. A person’s problem is in an area of lack of awareness. And specifically, the person is not able to take self-responsibility for solving the problem because they lack awareness, and don’t know how to take self-responsibility for the problem.
When the person reaches the point of self-responsibility, their problem becomes much easier to solve. I am so convinced of the benefits of self-responsibility therapy, it is my latest book *.
From a therapy point of view, what does that mean? How do such insights shape the way therapy is conducted? First, the therapist has to understand the problem, from the perspective of the person experiencing it. Then gently guide the person to the point of self-responsibility.
Almost always, when a person reaches the point of self-responsibility, they can quickly and effectively deal with their problem.
It goes further.
When a person fully understands how to take self-responsibility for every aspect of their lives, I have found that they can solve almost any future problem better that before.
What does that mean? That they are much, much less likely to need therapy again.
How quickly is self-responsibility therapy completed?
In practical terms, most of the psychotherapy I provide, using self-responsibility therapy, is completed in one 2 ½ to 3-hour session.
Occasionally, two sessions are required, and very, very rarely are three sessions required.
What does that mean for the client? There is no need to sign up for endless therapy sessions, lasting years and wasting vast amounts of money.
Now, with the methods developed in SRT (self-responsibility therapy) clients can solve their problems in (usually) one 2 ½ to 3-hour session.
Not all clients want to take self-responsibility
Observation: some clients WANT to have a paid audience, in the form of a once a week session with a “therapist.” Frankly, that is the client’s affair, but from my point of view such “therapists” are highly unethical and are knowingly creating an exploitative and dependent relationship, and bring the profession in to disrepute. If they wish to operate as paid confidants, they should describe themselves as that. Having a regular chat with a confidant can be therapeutic, but it is very far from psychotherapy, and it is the polar opposite of self-responsibility therapy.
If you think self-responsibility therapy is right for you…
If you want to solve your problems quickly, and reduce the chances of ever needing therapy again, then self-responsibility therapy could be right for you.
