Dr. Spears’ definition of counseling is eclectic in nature as well as gaining skill by practice. This skill draws on several learning theories, taking parts from each to make a meaningful substructure which has developed from formal study of learning theories such as behaviorism, developmental theory; brain based learning theories, right brain/left brain thinking and social; cognition. Dr. Spears combines the knowledge gained from the study of theories with her own experiences as a client, therapist, learner and observer. Therefore, Dr. Spears must create a positive therapeutic environment to become an effective therapist. Thus, she will utilize her psychological ethics. She will consider the characteristics of each person, such as their expectations and personal needs.
Dr. Spears will utilized her professional background by taking into account the mind, body and spirit of the individual encompassing all their parts, not just the physical body. When our emotions are in turmoil or our mind is bombarded with obsessive thoughts our health is compromised. It is important to create balance in one’s life by nurturing your whole person, which includes spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical needs. Taking care of one’s physical bodies is an important element in caring of one’s whole selves. It is important to listen to our bodies when it talks to us. Pain is a signifier that something needs one’s attention. When the immune system is compromised it’s best to give it a boost as soon as possible. When our emotions are in flux, physical imbalances and illnesses are likely to surface. Therefore, it is very important to learn stress management for keeping one’s mind healthy active and uncluttered from troubled thoughts. This conceptualizes Dr. Spears’ psychological premise of her work history.
