Although it’s unfortunate, there is still a lot of stigma with regards to going to a psychologist or psychiatrist. No one wants to go to a shrink because they feel that mental illness or behavioral problems are some kind of moral shortcoming of their character and soul.
This couldn’t be further from the truth – anyone who gets him/herself into a psychologist’s chair has more willpower than you can imagine. But the stigma still remains. If someone you love is suffering from a problem, yet he or she has too much pride to see a therapist, then I’m the perfect solution.
I’m the Gluck Solution. Rather than a serious, prodding psychotherapist who will force you to reveal the secrets of your psyche, it’s a lot easier to sell me to someone as a fun-loving, highly-practical life coach who can roll up the sleeves and help you make the best decisions going forward.
So if you have a teenage son with a drug problem who doesn’t want to go to a shrink, then tell him about a “life coach,” the head-coach of the sports team of their lives!
Or if you have someone who is skeptical about psychologists and has had bad experiences in the past, ask them if they’ve ever tried clinical hypnosis. I am the perfect alternative to any of the concerns or roadblocks that prevent you from taking the first step to getting better: seeing someone.
