Giving Proper Counselling
Everyday, we encounter different kinds of situations that we need to give solutions promptly. However, there are times that we need to help others when it comes to helping them find solutions to their problems. One of the things that we can do for them is listening first about what they are going through so we can give an effective counselling to them. Of course, it is never easy to give advice to other people because we might be lightening or worsening it. Yet, we can still learn how we can give a good one. There are many advice and counsel that has proved to be effective for many years. It gives wisdom that has the ability to guide our lives in the right path. We would know that we were able to find a good advice when it works out just right in our situation and we would know when we are able to give the right advice when it proved to be practical on the part of the person that we have given it to. To make it work, we have to make sure that our advice is realistic so it can be attainable and it does not sugar coat any facts from the situation. And it must be able to provide a motivating factor to make the necessary changes. How can we do that? We have to make sure that we gather enough information to do so.
Setting Some Reachable Goals
It is a challenge for any of us to be able to see beyond words and actions of one person. Seeing beyond the surface is important when giving counsel to one person when we really want them to succeed and benefit. It takes some handful insight for us to be able to discern about the real situation without overlooking some important facts. When we have this discernment, we would be able to help them set goals that can make their lives worthwhile while surpassing their problems instead of spending their time on things that do not have real meaning. We can find some do it yourself manual books even how we live our lives but we have to remember that we are individuals and we have different kinds of circumstance. So, we have to make sure that we are pointing them in the direction that they would personally benefit.
Helping them To Change for Better
As what is mentioned in the outset, when we are giving advice, we have to make sure that we are initiating some positive action. This requires not just good and kind words to say to them but it might also involve doing some things that can help them move forward. Yet, it is important that we also discern what is really in their hearts because no matter how motivating our help can be but they want what is contrary in their hearts, then it would be still useless.
Give them What is Practical
There are an abundance of advices today but we have to make sure that it should personally apply to us or to the ones we are giving them to. We have to make sure that we give the right advice at the right time and at the right place. Lead them into action and do not complicate things for them by being dogmatic about things that they cannot do.
It is important that we make sure we have listened to them first before we can give them a piece of advice. It takes time but having the patience can help us help them.
