"Over fifty per cent of marriages end in divorce. Over ninety-five per cent of workers hate their jobs. Many people complain that their lives have no purpose. No wonder we’re all dissatisfied and unhappy. Yet the possibilities for your life are endless. So what do you want out of your days? The goal of your counseling experience should be to become a whole and healthy person enjoying every aspect of your life – not just some parts of it while detesting others. Get the help to move you to where you want to be. "
