I’m on the Level 4 counselling course and sometimes I feel I get a good reminder of how far I’ve come, and how much I’ve learnt, I remember on level 2 being overwhelmed at the theory side of things, feeling like I’d never be able to able to get to grips with understanding actualising tendencies and core conditions etc,
However, recently my brother came for Sunday lunch, he’s an amazing cook and I always like to make a huge effort to impress. As I started to make the gravy my brain went blank, should I just add flour or shall I make a rue I asked him, oh no, I wouldn’t do it like that he said, and gave me his method, self-doubt clouded my vision for a moment, then Bang, No, I’m going to do it my way. Wow he said, you sounded really empowered then Poll, I like it!
After lunch when everyone complimented my delicious gravy and I smiled knowing it tasted all the sweeter to me as I used my internal locus of evaluation to provide a clear answer for myself AND I recognised the theory.
Now…… I wonder if I can match any criteria to this?
