Do you want to know why I chose the word “Conquest” to describe my therapy practice? Sure you do! I’m going to tell you anyway and you’re going to love it. I hope! Read on for the “why, how, who” involvement of naming my practice.
Before the initial brainstorming phase, I already knew that I was going to go by, Shamyra Howard, LCSW. That was the name of my practice. What do you think? Although Sha-my-ra is a beautiful name, it did not say much about my clients, and how I want you to feel during and after therapy with me. I was informed that I should use my name because it is my brand, and because people don’t want to see the words “counseling,” and “therapy.” Those were some good reasons. Then I did some research and realized my name has nothing to do with the service I provide. So the brainstorming began!
Throughout the process of trying to name my practice, I kept in mind how I wanted my clients to feel. But I didn’t want anything cheesy, or cliché. Many of the terms I wanted to use were already taken. Then magic happened! I thought some more, and more, and more! Yes that’s magic, okay. I asked myself, “Shamyra what should people expect when working with you?” The words “triumph,” and “journey” came to mind. I wanted people to triumph throughout their therapeutic journey with me. Then I checked other words that were synonymous to triumph and just like that CONQUEST jumped out at me like, BAM! Then, magic happened again. Yep, I thought some more! Conquest has many different definitions, but the one that describes what I was looking for is : “to overcome by force.” Yessss!! That’s it! That. Is. It! I want you to experience a conquest in your therapeutic journey with me.
Choosing to attend therapy is a big choice. One that requires commitment, work, and dedication. You expect relief from whatever issues you decide to attend therapy for. You are equally responsible for your conquest. You have to put in work to see the results!
