Just had a great couple of sessions yesterday and today helping two individuals overcome obstacles in their lives. Man do I love my work helping people break through!
The first was suffering from huge self-esteem problems after a layoff, despite the fact he had a stellar life and work background. Helped him connect emotionally to his values, accomplishments, skills and goals in life. Also touched the grieving process to notice its impact. Client came around to a fresh perspective about his capabilities/future and what he wanted. He committed to identifying and pursuing 25 companies that matched his values in the next two weeks.
The second person had been drifting through life without purpose, a meaningful relationship, fulfilling work or a nurturing environment. After the third session, he has ended an unhealthy relationship of 4 years, identified values that have helped him gain clarity on life purpose and identified the environment, activities and people who will provide a more nurturing life. Yeah for change!
