Troubled? See no way out?
If you need assistance in dealing with troubling issues in life but don’t know who to talk to ( you just know that you don’t need a shrink or a clergy), then give philosophy and yourself a chance. Philosophy, the love of wisdom, is a rational and systematic discipline that seeks to meet the challenges of all sort of fundamental problems of human existence, and it has been around for over 2500 years in both the western and eastern traditions. The legacy of philosophy offers in-depth understanding and inspiring perspectives of life issues. Therefore, the study of philosophy is no doubt the most direct and relevant starting point of getting yourself out of trouble.
However, if you are not the kind of person who would study philosophy on his own, you just want to engage in relevant philosophical reflection, then counselor with a strong background in philosophy could help. Through dialogues, a trained and certified philosophical counselor would offers philosophical guidance, insight, and instruction that guide you through your issues rationally and systematically so that you could really get to the kernel of the problems and deal with them with increased confidence.
