The purpose of a guilt therapist is to help a patient get over their persistent feelings of guilt or shame. Some people are plagued by the persistent, unshakeable feeling that they have committed some sin or transgression against another person or ideal. A child who was abused may feel guilty, feeling that they somehow deserved the treatment they received. Someone who has survived a terrible accident may feel what's known as "survivor's guilt," which makes them feel ashamed for having survived when so many others didn't. It's the job of a guilt therapist to help an individual get over these feelings, which can go away at a person's well-being and even their physical health. Experienced guilt therapists strike at the heart of a person's guilt complex. By urging the patient to come clean about their feelings of shame, these therapists can discover the initial reason for the guilt and help the patient learn the ways that guilt wormed its way into their psyche. This self-knowledge empowers the patient to recognize and combat their disorder. A guilt therapist also specializes in encouraging the patient to replace their shame with a more constructive habit exercise, gardening, or some other pursuit which is both healthy and inexpensive.
The powers of shame shouldn't underestimated. Throughout our history, shame has served as a potent social check, preventing people from doing unrighteous or improper things. The lingering, humiliating effects of shame can wreak havoc on the human psyche, particularly if the cause of the guilt remains unresolved. Lingering guilt can easily ruin a person's life. It can even have an adverse effect on their personal relationships? is anyone capable of loving or forgiving another who is incapable of loving or forgiving himself or herself? For the same reasons, a person wracked by guilt may put their career and prospects in jeopardy. It's almost impossible to quit feeling guilty by oneself? like any habit, mental or physical, the feeling of guilt ingrains itself upon a person's mind, refusing to be shaken loose. A guilt therapist is a person's best bet for permanently defeating that incessant shame. Don't let a guilt complex ruin your life, or watch it ruin the life of someone you care about.
