Ask Yourself

* Does step parenting feel like the most challenging and thankless job of all?

* Is the tension and conflict taking its toll on your relationships

* Are you becoming worried about your children and their well-being?

* Are you constantly arguing with your partner about the kids, discipline and parenting in general?

• Is your ex or your partner's ex causing real problems in your blended family and in your relationship

• Are you at the end of your rope and need some answers NOW

* Are you considering entering into a Blended Family or Stepfamily and want to be prepared?

Coaching

Coaching differs from counseling and yet shares some similar characteristics. Both are intended to assist people to identify and make some important changes in their life that will enhance their well-being. Coaching is generally for people who are not experiencing major difficulties in their personal situation but do want to make changes to improve their own overall well-being and their success in relationships. I will outline some of the main features of coaching that will help you to better understand the process.

First of all, when most people think about Counseling they think about therapy and often have a negative association with that. While there is nothing negative about therapy or counseling, many people do not choose to think of themselves as needing psychological help with the issues in their lives. In the work that I do, I combine EDUCATION, with THERAPEUTIC OR COUNSELLING APPROACHES where necessary, and a strong emphasis on COACHING so we cover all the bases that are involved in working with individuals in relationships.

Essentially, my style is very COACH ORIENTED. Here are some main characteristics of COACHING:

I like to work with my clients by providing information and education about the Step Dynamics that allows for a new understanding to occur for the individual, the couple of the family as a whole. We determine what you want the future or different aspects of that future, including relationships, to look like and work together to determine what the goals and steps are to get there. The focus once again is future and solution focused with an emphasis on achieving the vision you have of your life.

We discuss problems and issues that are sensitive and are creating tension and conflict in your lives, but use that as a starting place to determine what you want to have instead. There is a great deal of emphasis placed on achieving new understanding of what it is like for everyone in the situation, as well as personal responsibility for one’s own emotions and behaviors which largely determine our capacity for happiness and fulfillment.
