Some things you can talk about, for those things you can't, let the creative arts speak for you. SJ
It's all about identity. And it's all about communication. At the core of every aspect of our personal and professional lives are issues of identity; who am I? We spend our time and money on learning how to best communicate that identity. Whether you are engaged in personal therapy or counselling or in personal branding and marketing, it all comes down to who you are and how you communicate that identity to others. My one passionate goal is to enable my clients to realize that who we are is based on three branches of our being: we are SENSORY BEINGS, CONSCIOUS BEINGS and CREATIVE BEINGS. And our innate language with which we communicate who we are is the non-verbal and verbal language of metaphor. I CALL METAPHOR OUR LANGUAGE OF CREATIVE THINKING. We communicate all the time. We impart or exchange information between people and places. It is our main means of connecting; with ourselves and others. We speak and write using words in a structured and conventional way. Sounds simple, but you know it's not. Otherwise, why wouldn't people get what you say? Why is it often so difficult to actually say what you're thinking and feeling? I help you make sense of it all and get your communication across successfully. FIRST thing I do is reconnect you with your primary language, our pre-verbal sensory forms of communication. Finding how to say what is often beyond words. SECOND, I help you learn how you use language; what words mean to you, and that those words don't necessarily have the same meaning for others I help you learn to make use of the language that will get your message across successfully; to yourself and others. I am a solutions provider. I enable you to arrive at your own solutions through the use of your first language, creativity. Services I am currently offering include: Short-term focused therapy for individuals, couples or families: Within a six-week time frame I will enable you to articulate the primary issue blocking you from moving on and enable you to develop new strategies to incorporate into your day to day life. If you are experiencing any form of grieving or loss, this is an ideal therapy opportunity for you. Individual Professional and Personal Counselling: I help highly effective people understand exactly how and why they choose their personal and business relationships via my Individual Suitability Profile (ISP); a tool utilizing the creative arts. With the knowledge and insight you gain, you can take charge of your own life choices.

In both our personal and professional lives, it is more manageable to work with ideas, strategies, plans, goals, relationships, feelings and so on, if we place them in an opposite.
