WELCOME TO ARMCHAIR PHILOSOPHICAL COUNSELING
i'm eliza mcdermott
i'm a 'philosophcal counselor' certified by the national philosophical counseling association and i carry a graduate degree in philosophy (ethics). though i share the designation 'counselor', i am not a mental health therapist. my practice, armchair philosophical counseling, is an exercise in deep thinking and personal reflection. its an option for folks who would benefit from taking time to reflect deeply on their lives.
i help clients define their problems by engaging them in philosophical inquiry. they explore their thinking processes, belief systems and habits/tendencies, deepening their self-awareness and knowledge. by doing so, they gain a greater sense of control and intentionality in their lives.
armchair philosophical counseling is guided self-reflection and analysis. clients develop and exercise critical thinking and problem-solving skills as they think through their significant life challenges.
what is a philosophical counseling practice? who should try it?
armchair philosophical counseling is a modern approach to living well. dedicated time to slow down, reflect and bring intentionality into your life is healing and empowering.
philosophical counseling can be a great practice for folks wanting to address
negative feelings (ie anxiety, unhappiness, discontent)
personal and/professional challenges
a desire to achieve greater personal growth & satisfaction.
although philosophical counseling shares the title 'counseling' as well as some methods & strategies with mental health therapy/counseling, it is not an alternative to therapy counseling. instead, think of it as a thoughtful and creative way to exercise your brain as you do your body.
