Life sometimes can be going in the right direction. Just the right amount of motivation and enthusiasm and suddenly something takes you by surprise. You often can't even figure out what went wrong or how you suddenly became derailed.

I notice with my clients and myself that we should constantly assess our lives. All too often a client will have a session and leave all pumped up and I don’t see them for months on end. Don’t forget that even if you don’t send your car in for a regular service it too will have its problems.

Often a maintenance session has some tough questions that need to be answered. I thought I would share just a few of the questions and answers from one of my clients during their session to show you just how a session can push you out of your comfort zone and challenge you. 

On every level, you will be supported and pushed to accomplish what it is you need to work on.

The feeling that life isn’t going to change                           Well it all depends if you want the change or not

who seem to have it all

Always feeling that I have to be there for everyone           Would you really like this to change or does it make you feel good too? Find a balance
