There Must Be A Better Way!

Life can be difficult sometimes. Many of us experience stress, anxiety, depression, addictions, frustration or relationship difficulties.

These are all symptoms. You need to get to the underlying cause to create lasting and meaningful change.

To do this you need a guide whose understanding is more than theoretical. Someone who is suitably qualified and experienced and who can say “I’ve been through this myself, I know how it feels, I’ve turned my own life around after many years of distress and helped many others do the same.”

It’s also important to know that this does not necessarily mean that there is something wrong with you or that you are mentally ill. You do not have to be mentally ill to benefit from this form of counseling and psychotherapy.

These feelings often arise because you do not fit into any of the boxes that you are expected to fit into. Your needs are not understood and they are not being met.

If you want guidance and support in dealing effectively with life’s challenges, and in being true to yourself in an environment or society that may not always share your priorities and values, call Donald Marmara at Core Development on 02 9413 9794 or 0412 178 234.

Please note that Core Development is a learning approach developed from my life experience, and 35 years’ experience and training in psychotherapy, somatic psychotherapy, counselling and personal development. It is not a substitute for medical or clinical treatment where this is required.
