Counselling Myself

Having had much time to avoid writing this paper, I decided that I would write about my exploration of thought process and beliefs that have been barriers in writing this piece of work

I left education after secondary school where I found studying quiet difficult, I made a decision recently to return to studying and started a short course, I found that my learning came from listening rather than reading and that I am able to engage in group discussions and exercises however it takes me some time to understand, analyse and process my participation. Keeping a journal has been a positive tool for recording my thoughts and a common theme became apparent from writing, much of my thinking appeared to be negative maybe connected to low self esteem and image, a clear example of this can be shown in the time it has taken for me to write this piece of work, I decided that I would base what I had learnt on the course, theory and group work around my beliefs about myself and my abilities.

Main

I realised that I was not taught how to learn as a child and due to this I formed my own beliefs around. I decided that by having an understanding of different learning styles may help me find what approach works best for me, listening, visual, aural, kinaesthetic and acting are a variety of approaches. I came across Kolb’s experimental learning cycle and the process of engaging in an activity (Activist), thinking through the activity (Reflectivist), making sense of the reflection (Theorist) and checking out the idea and assumption somewhere else (Pragmatist), this theory allows me to do things differently but it came to my attention that I had not put pen to paper, I would have to look deeper inside myself.

My thinking of writing this essay has been totally governed by the belief and self-talk, telling myself, ‘I can’t do it’, ‘I’ll get it wrong’. Armed with these maladaptive beliefs I went on to decide what approach would work best.

    embarrassed and go red in the face, I had to cover my face with my hands so that no one could see my face and I asked everyone to stop looking at me.
