Dr. Sidney Nelson has been counseling for more than 30 years. In that time, he has developed his own unique approach to helping clients overcome the thoughts and emotions that are troubling their day-to-day life; their relationships; their jobs; and basically, anything else.
Dr. Nelson has been sought out to help with all types of personal problems. However, the most common reasons include anxiety, anger, depression, and low self-esteem. Dr. Nelson’s primary training is in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), having studied in New York with Dr. Albert Ellis, the founder of the first expression of CBT, which is called rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT).
It is often our emotions that bring us to seek help in counseling. What many of us do not understand fully is that our emotions are linked, welded, to our thoughts. Our irrational thoughts create unpleasant emotions. For example,
– “I’m in danger” evokes the emotion of fear or anxiety.
-“It’s no use, I give up” evokes the emotion of depression.
– “You shouldn’t do that!” evokes the emotion of anger.
