Everybody's Got That Something...
No one likes to admit it, but we all have that something that we wish might somehow be different.
We wish we were better. Wish we were more. Wish to be heard or seen. Wish we could be free of some situation.
Yet, we often continue to do the same thing unless we come across something or someone who shows us an alternative path, a different way.
That is what you will find here.
Someone to help you challenge these notions, explore different avenues and discover new ways of being.
3 Simple Goals
WITH ALL THREE, YOU THRIVE, NOT JUST SURVIVE
Reduce the amount of suffering that you (your partner or family) has to deal with on a daily basis.
Increased awareness with knowledge and skills so changes made are sustainable and adaptable
A values-based framework which allows for a life that touches, moves and inspires you.
Not sure this is right for you?
We have all, over time, developed ways to engage with the world, both internally and externally. We established and adopted many of our rules and tools at a young age and adjusted as needed as we went along.
Yet, sometimes, while what we came up with once worked, as of late, these rules and tools are no longer providing the desired outcomes. Circumstances have changed, are more complex, and we didn't notice.
Should we continue, in the face of these new situations, to utilize the same approaches while expecting different outcomes, we become frustrated and anxious. If we do this long enough, it will begin to seem hopeless.
Openness, awareness and values-based actions help to increase psychological flexibility so that it becomes possible to transition through such a stage.
