Core Values

In your first session with me we will assess your core values.

Below is a Q&A so you know what to expect.

  1. What are core values?

Core values are based on how you see the world and your existence.

2. How are they assessed? 

We rate values from 1 to 5.

Rating 1 being insignificant and a rating of 5 being key to your existence.

Any rating between 1 to 5, is on a sliding scale of importance and relevance.

 3. Why are they important to analyse them?

To measure your values and, if needs be, to re-evaluate your rating.

If you are feeling mentally challenged with let’s say depression or anxiety, it is worth doing a core value assessment. Then, after 3 to 6 months once a course of treatment has been put in place from self-help (mindfulness, journaling etc.), working with an intuitive mental health counsellor (not a clinical counsellor) to working with a GP and being on prescription medication, a values assessment should be completed. This practice will allow you to cross-examine and analyse your ratings.

 4. Are they fixed or are they reviewed during our sessions?

Absolutely not; without question, ratings against certain values such as ‘Achievement’, ‘Balance’, ‘Faith’, ‘Happiness’, ‘Love’, ‘Respect’, Self-Respect’ and ‘Success’ will undoubtingly change after just an initial 8-week programme with a non-clinical mental health counselling professional.

 5. How often should they be reconsidered?

Ideally, every 3 to 6 months.

6. Why is it useful to re-evaluate them?

To ascertain your own development.

Feel free to get in touch if you would like to know more about your core values and how they influence your behaviours.
