Therapy and Counseling in Iowa City

At Wolfleg Counseling in Iowa City, we provide counseling and therapy services for individuals and couples.  The following story illustrates one of our approaches to supporting and listening to clients:

A Navajo grandson, speaking to his grandfather, asked, "Grandfather, why is life so hard sometimes?" Grandfather replied, "life is hard at times for all two-legged people because we have a serpent and an eagle fighting inside of us. The serpent says to itself, 'I am no good and it's not my fault.' The eagle flies high and sees far with clarity." The Grandson finally asked, "Grandfather, which one wins?" Grandfather answered, "The one you feed wins,"

I believe most people understand negative self talk.  We criticize ourselves, belittle ourselves, compare ourselves to others, etc.

This kind of inner dialogue can lead to depression, anxiety and a whole host of maladies.

At Wolfleg Counseling, one intervention we use is Attention Based Cognitive Therapy (ABCT.)  With ABCT you will learn how to gain control over your attention, not allowing your attention to remain fixed on the inner negative talk.  You will begin to move your attention, both in your inner world and your outer world, to productive and helpful places.

This ability will bring about healing and health.
