A SERIOUS LIFE CHALLENGE “HAS YOU BY THE THROAT”

Perhaps you dealing with circumstances and consequences that you can’t just avoid or ignore. And what you already know how to do doesn’t seem to be enough.

Common issues include:

  • HEALTH

    • Chronic pain or other chronic or debilitating medical conditions

    • A sudden change in your health that has completely disrupted and altered your life

    • Coming to grips with Aging–perhaps your own and/or others

  • WORK

    • You procrastinate to the point of sabotaging yourself or limiting potential options for success and advancement.

    • You have great ideas, and balk at following through for all sorts of reasons

    • You have a negative reputation with your co-workers as “defensive”, “argues too much”, “not a team player”, “is too opinionated”, (add your own favorite(s))

  • RELATIONSHIPS

    • Serious Threat of significant relationship ending

    • Marital/family discord that you’re no longer willing to “just put up with it”. You both/all want something

      better, and aren’t finding a way to get there.

    • A pattern of relationships that “all seem to end the same way”

  • YOU HAVE SAID MORE THAN 3 TIMES IN THE LAST 10 DAYS

    • “I’m so upset I just can’t think!”

    • “I wish I could ‘just grow up!’”

    • “I know I shouldn’t be saying/doing these things, but I just can’t stop myself!”

  • INTERACTIONS WITH OTHERS

    • “All I want is for people to understand me and what I’m trying to do–and they just won’t!”

    • “OMG, why did I say THAT?!”

    • “ What the hell is wrong with people!”

    • “Doesn’t anybody around here know what they’re doing?!”

  • DIFFICULT CIRCUMSTANCES AND SITUATIONS

    • You are faced with real-world  scenario that you can’t stop worrying about it ALL the time.

    • You have had a significant loss and feel “stuck” in grieving over it (“I just can’t seem to get over it and move on!”)

    • You are so frightened by a potential negative outcome that you become paralyzed or just retreat from taking action

  • RELATIONSHIPS

    • “Honest” (or too many) discussions with your sweetie end up in an argument (or worse) more often than you want.

    • A particular colleague/supervisor/boss “drives me nuts!”

    • You are dreading that upcoming visit with your or your partner’s family

    • You want to change the pattern of men/women you choose–for the better

    • You want to know how to tell if your new Heart Throb is long-term trustworthy

    • Real Partnering vs “Making Each Other Whole” (which tends to end up badly)

    • Are the problems in your marriage really just about  “how we communicate”?

    • Dealing with a Narcissistic partner

      • Signs that they are

      • How to test whether it’s worth “helping him change”
