A Quick Introduction and Hello

Jon’s Relationship Philosophy

Leaning into your love

Becoming an Expert

Jon’s philosophy is that most people are never taught how to be a good partner. There is simply an assumption that love and relationships should be involuntary. While having a great relationship doesn’t have to be hard and can be incredibly simple, it does take a conscious effort to make it work. Jon’s approach is to teach his clients the building blocks of what makes a relationship work and point out the areas where his clients are missing opportunities to connect with their partner.

FAQs

Questions are good. Answers are even better.

How does counseling work?

Counseling sessions are 50 minutes long and since COVID have been offered exclusively through online video sessions or phone sessions, with video sessions being highly preferred. Most of our communication as humans is non-verbal so being able to have that video interaction with his clients, allows Jon to pick up on subtle cues that would otherwise go missing in a phone conversation. That being said, phone calls are an acceptable form of working together if it is an absolute necessity. 

Generally speaking, a counseling session will start with Jon asking you what’s going on in your life and what you want to work on so that realistic goals can be discussed. 

Then drawing from thousands of clients and over a decade of experience, Jon uses a variety of tools to help his clients move closer to that goal. Oftentimes, these sessions go over different techniques for helping people understand things about their own personality or their partners, ways to resolve conflict, techniques for embodying cognitive concepts, and much more. 

What it feels like from the client’s perspective is a conversation with someone who is an expert in the field giving comforting, actionable advice that you can use to transform your life.

What are the benefits of counseling?

1 on 1 counseling sessions with a counselor, coach, or therapist have an enormous impact when there is a good match of the client to the therapist. There are as many ways to practice counseling as there are counselors. Each and every person offering counseling has a different approach and personality that may or may not resonate with you on a personal level.

However, when a good match is made and you are with a therapist who gets you and knows how to help you achieve your goals what you can expect is often a rapid transformation in your life.

You’ll be able to better understand your own interpersonal relationships and how to resolve conflicts, grow closer to friends and loved ones, gain confidence in all aspects of your life, and find an inner peace that reduces stress, anxiety, and depression.

How do I choose the right therapist, counselor, life coach, etc.?

The best way to ensure that you are choosing the right counseling provider is to express what you want out of the relationship and gauge the response of your counselor. How does their approach align with what you want to get out of counseling? Does their speciality fit the issue(s) you are dealing with currently? Do you like them personally and appreciate their way of communicating? Does their energy level make you feel comfortable or even inspired? Are they able to explain terms and ideas in a way that makes sense to you? These are all questions you should be asking yourself at the conclusion of your first session or even during an initial discovery call with your potential counseling provider.

How can I get the most out of counseling?

There are two things you should to make the most out of your counseling. The first is to be honest and transparent with your counselor. The more your counselor knows about what’s going on in your head and what relevant background information they need to know the better they can serve you. If you withhold information about your upbringing, relationships, addiction, fears, etc. you are essentially handicapping the possibility of real growth. It may be a bit shocking to some of you reading this, but it’s not uncommon for a counselor to work with someone for weeks, months or even years before they find out that the client has been hiding vital information that changes the entire trajectory of their approach to working with that client.

Keep in mind that therapy or counseling is for you. By hiding any pertitent details about your life from your counselor, you are only hunting yourself in the process.

The second thing you should do when trying to leverage the most out of your therapy is getting clear about your goals and making sure you and your counseling provider stay on track. It’s very easy to get sidetracked when unloading all the different stresses of your life to your counselor, but being able to redirect your attention back to what you really want to accomplish is a good way to make bigger strides in your sessions.
While counselors will occasionally try to redirect you back to your goal, they are also their to listen and see if something else needs attention so they will often let you lead the session and if you get off topic, many counselors will simply allow you to express any issues you want during that session which might not be what you wanted. If, however, you need a session where you’re just airing out grievances then by all means, use the session that

Will Counseling work for me?

Yes. Counseling works for everyone provided you find the right counselor. Jon has worked with people in their sixties who swore up and down that therapy and counseling was all balogna and that they would never see the point in it only to walk away feeling empowered on how to see change in their life. The best way for you to make sure that counseling will work for you is to get clear about your goals and then get clear on whether the person you are working with feels like they can actually help you reach those goals. The first session is usually critical in deciding whether you feel like the provider is a good fit for you so be clear to voice any concerns you might have about the relationship before the end of your session.

I’ve had counseling/therapy before and it didn’t help. Why and how will this be different?
Jon’s approach to relationship and individual counseling is to teach you a vast array of tools in a short amount of time. In addition to using his expertise to understand things about you and your relationships in a surprisingly rapid way, he also shows you how to make significant changes quickly.

Many of the techniques and approaches Jon utilizes are brazen and are in fact not permissible for psychologists or social workers to use as they are too direct.

If you’ve been in therapy where you felt like not much was happening from session to session you will be surprised by the amount of change that can happen with a forward-thinking counselor like Jon Dabach.

That being said, personalities still have to align. If you’re not the type of person who wants to see significant change and is ready to explore things that have previously been uncomfortable for you, it might not be the right fit for you.
