From time to time, I find it helpful to go back to basics. Here are some points you may find it worthwhile to reflect upon:
- Acknowledge how good you already are!
- Consider why you do this work, and what you most like and dislike about it.
- Measure your skills by the results you get not just by your paper qualifications.
- Remember that some qualities are measurable, and some are not. Assess the importance and relevance of both.
- Consider the relative importance and roles of personal qualities and technical skills.
- How does your life experience impact on your work?
- What innate skills do you have? What do you enjoy and are naturally good at?
- Consider Boundaries. Facilitators and Coaches are sometimes expected to be jacks of all trades. What are your skills and when should you refer a client and/or co-work with a practitioner whose skills complement and/or enrich yours?
- Sometimes Facilitation can be stressful. Learning to recognise what causes you stress & what you can do to turn stressful and potentially stressful situations into constructive learning experiences can benefit your health and enhance your effectiveness.
- What works for one person may not work for another. I believe that it is important to discover answers for yourself which is why my work is experiential.
- Some of our inner strengths and resources, as well as the factors that limit our effectiveness, are often hidden and may require skilled help to access.
In my work I help you discover (a) your inner strengths and resources, (b) the barriers to your full potential, and (c) how to understand and deal effectively with stressful and emotional issues.
I draw on my training in somatic psychotherapy, developmental psychology, counselling and the fundamentals of structural dynamics, as well as my work and life experience, to enable you to turn stressful situations into constructive learning experiences, to improve your health, and to enrich your work and your life.
I am available for individual and couples sessions, sessions with parents and teenagers, and public and in-house workshops.
