Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between your services and therapy? Our services blend elements of coaching, consulting, training and mentoring. These are intended to identify your strengths and build upon them so that you are better able to reach your goals and achieve greater satisfaction and fulfillment in your life. We emphasize a pragmatic approach to the “here and now” and do not involve a detailed review of your past.

Therapy is oriented towards “fixing” problems once they occur and is based more on a model of ill health. It seeks to get people out of their distressed situation

Our methods might overlap with some of the methods used in therapy (such as helping you promote change in your life, increasing your motivation, and working towards your goals in a focused way). A major difference is that we focus on ways to enhance your life, rather than focusing on ways to treat problems.

I would like to try the Relationship Mentor, but my partner does not want to participate. What can I do? Sometimes, one person in the relationship is more ready to work on enhancing the relationship than the other. Although the couple is our preferred format for relationship enhancement training, it is possible for individuals to benefit from this service as well. We work with you to identify steps you can take on your own to begin strengthening your relationship.
