About

My practice, over the years, has become more and more attuned to problems of conflict and issues of violence. As a trained child psychologist, I have seen first hand the raw damage an emotional injury continues to create. As a clinician, it has not been unusual for me to see the same sorts of trauma: yet locked away in one's memory, living on in current behaviour. This is what conflict can do. The issues just seem to keep on repeating themselves, inevitably with the same unfortunate outcomes. (My role sometimes is the Life Coach who becomes a personal guide.)
When parents say "good-bye" to each other in divorce mediation, the conflict has been well-managed only if children have been helped. Conflict sources, such as the "invisible handicaps" of LD/ADD, have been identified when pain may be relieved. The Gifted Adult, knowing of giftedness, reduces conflict through knowledge.
I think Milton Erickson, with his metaphor of "therapist as guide", offered a very nice description of the counselling process. Erickson knew very well that people solve people's problems, therapists do not. Equally, Helen Keller has suggested that true happiness is not attained through self-gratification but rather through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
