This is the “why” class. Helping you identify the drive behind your decision making, behavioral patterns and emotional needs. Why did I decide to develop this class? Through 28 years in the counseling and mental health field the most thematic question that arises for people, and their loved ones and co-workers, is, “why do you or I, do that?” This material is to help better understand why we do the things we do. To uncover the invisible force within us which is our core needs. And what we can do to better (strategy) to meet our needs; find our purpose and live in a more harmonious life. In addition, by going through this material it should be able help you understand other people’s behavior; help you better work and relate to others because you have an idea what is motivating them. If I can help you learn something new about yourself; maybe see something under a new light; or why others do what they do then I have accomplished what I set out to do. Whether that is trying to understand compulsive behavior patterns, addictions, relationship problems, indecision, career paths, or just the pure sense and wonder of “why” do we do the things we do? Why did I violate my true beliefs? We even get so perplexed by our actions that it can almost feel ‘otherworldly’ causing one to doubt if they might even be possessed? And of course the answer is “yes and no”. We are all possessed by an invisible force: our temperament wiring / our core needs. The crux of my work, is to always point us to something more beneath the surface and what lies there is the celestial understanding we all have the same shared needs; and we all need help in reaching those needs by a force bigger than ourselves to understand this existence.
At Waterstone we call counseling “deep discipleship” because when people go through suffering and pain, these times can hold promise for growth, transformation and even redemption. Most helpful is a good guide who walks with you to navigate, encourage, challenge and call out your strength. For over a decade I have observed Keith walk with hurting people from our congregation to places of courage, hope and healing.
Keith is one with a passion for care and seeks to deeply understand the heart of the person in front of him. He is dedicated to helping those on the frontlines of ministry. He knows how to clearly walk the road with the minister of the Gospel who desperately needs to be understood and allowed the opportunity to lift the burden of leadership off their shoulders for a respite.
“I found the information valuable and easy to follow and I have gained some insight into my own life.”
“…the class is a great way to refresh your thinking, bring your vital signs back if you will”
As a therapist and counselor, Keith Hughes has two remarkable attributes: His intuition and sense of humor. His skills sets (which are superior) are balanced upon these nuances. Added to this, Keith is a ‘connected’ believer in the Christian faith and His community that gives him a supernatural perspective also. I highly recommend him in his discipline
