Why the name "Learning to Bend?"
Throughout history there have been many examples of the metaphor of 'bending like a tree.' From Aesop's fable of the Oak and the Reed to Lao Tsu's Tao Te Ching, there are many variations on the saying (and they all essentially mean the same thing). My favorite is from Tao Te Ching which is, "The tree that is unbending is easily broken." So what does this have to do with counseling? Well, we humans can be quite rigid. 'Things need to be this way. I cannot have this anxiety/pain/sadness. This terrible thing happened and I can't move on with my life!' In counseling, the aim is to work with you on learning to "bend" with the winds life can throw at us.
