Announcement icon Hi guys! In stage 4 of lockdown I am doing face-to-face sessions again if you so choose. Online sessions are STILL available. Be safe.
You might be an adolescent or adult and are stuck, desolate, stressed, frustrated, demotivated, your batteries have run dry or you just do not know where to turn next. You are overwhelmed by issues/problems that seem unsolvable. Or you might be a couple that has reached a dead-end street, that is stuck in a deadening routine where spark and passion have disappeared. Either way, you probably need to see the light again, you need motivation, hope and direction in your life. You probably need to sit back, evaluate, and decide to do something different instead of what is keeping you stuck in the problem. You CAN be your old self again!
I see adolescents, adults and couples with any issues, working from a solution focused perspective. In our conversations you initially talk about your reason for being here. However, after that we mainly focus on CHANGE i.e. your future wishes and best hopes for yourself AND then we work out how to get there. This creates much hope, direction, optimism.
So if you are stuck, demotivated, or if your batteries are empty, here is a chance to become the person you want to be in a very effective and efficient manner - not the talking-about-problems approach where so many people are stuck. I do not want to stay there. We look and move forwards - not backwards - towards a new life of hope.
