I offer short-to-medium term services to people who are feeling stuck in some area of their lives and who are not at this point wanting to undertake a longer-term counselling or therapeutic process. Some examples of common presenting concerns are: feeling stuck about an important decision that has to be made, being clear about what should be done but not seeming to be able to actually do it, or feeling caught in a relationship pattern that is not working.

My goal in this work is to help the client clearly identify the issue or problem, explore the sticking points, and sort through potential resolutions of the gridlock. In my experience, “stuckness” often has its roots in one or more of the following: a lack of awareness of some of one’s own feelings, especially mixed feelings, about an issue; the problem being cyclical in nature (“a vicious circle”); or efforts to resolve the problem that have been “more of the same” (e.g., just trying harder).
