The philosophy by which the Hawaii Counseling and Education Center, Inc. operates is based on a simple, common sense approach to counseling.  We believe that all people have a natural ability to live in a state of health.  From this state they experience a more positive, peaceful sense of well being where feelings such as happiness, contentment and love are generated.

The counseling and other programs offered are designed to teach people how they can easily access their mental health on a moment to moment basis.  This is accomplished by helping people to understand basic, “common sense” principles of how thought works and how feelings and emotions are created.  As clients gain an understanding of themselves and how they function psychologically, they can reduce stress, make positive changes and enjoy life more fully.
