Podcast Episode: Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling

April 22, 2019

The main goal of all helping professions, including counselors, therapists and social workers, is to do no harm. Counselors build relationships of trust with their patients and therefore must be aware of their professional and therapeutic responsibilities to their patients.

Early in the counseling relationship, counselors must establish the guidelines of their relationship, clarify their roles and obligations to the patient, explain the ethical standards under which they practice and discuss conflict resolution techniques.

In today's episode Jake goes over the 5 ethical principles considered relevant to counselling. The fundamental values of counselling and psychotherapy include a commitment to: Respecting human rights and dignity. Protecting the safety of clients. Ensuring the integrity of practitioner-client relationships.

Podcast Episode: Boundaries: Protecting Your Emotional Space

Podcast Episode: Boundaries: Protecting Your Emotional Space

April 15, 2019

Boundary setting is an important, albeit difficult, part of self-care when a loved one is living with a mental illness. This may be harder and more complex for some than others. By setting boundaries, you are taking responsibility for how others treat you and your own needs seriously.

Boundary violations of any sort tend to cause relationship problems. When one partner's actions cause another to feel belittled, unimportant or abused, then that other partner is faced with the task of learning how to defend themselves.

Join us on this episode as Jake guides us through the importance of boundaries within our lives and relationships.

March 25, 2019

It has been known that feelings are important aspect of our lives but the trouble is many of us have been brought up to ignore and override feelings. Childhood messages have a great role in contributing to this state of mind.

We feel guilty if we express our feelings of anger, shame, guilt and annoyance. We are afraid that we will hurt the feelings of others due to being people pleaser. The result of this kind of suppression is often anxiety, phobias, depression and restlessness.

In this episode Jake digs deeper on how the belief system within us filters what we see and hear, affecting how we behave in our daily lives.

Podcast Episode: Surf Therapy Offering Hope

February 25, 2019

Anyone who has surfed knows that much more goes into this activity than the ability to spot a wave and stand on a board. Not only does this sport work the entire body through extensive paddling and balance, it also requires patience and surrender.

There is a team in South Africa who are doing some incredible work in the rural areas. They have created a program to educating underprivileged kids on wildlife and the effects of pollution. This is just the tip of their program. Every summer they go out and teach these kids about ocean conservation through surfing.

In today’s episode we had the pleasure and honor talking to the founder of Small Steps. Jake and Jürgen talk about the impacts of surfing in the rural areas of South Africa and go deep on his journey in life and what gave his the inspiration to begin this great project.

Podcast Episode: A Principle of Intentionality

Podcast Episode: A Principle of Intentionality

February 18, 2019

Intentionality is a conscious state of being in the present moment. One of the central elements of social cognition, and people's folk theory of mind in particular, is the concept of intentionality.

It structures people’s perception of behavior from infancy on, grows to a complex conceptual framework that links behavior to mind, and underlies distinct information processing paths in the explanation, prediction, and moral evaluation of behavior.

The concept of intentionality itself may be a very complex feature that incorporates the different traits, and perhaps more. 

Join us today as Jake dives in with anecdotes and personal examples of intentionality.
