Achieve Your Goals!

Often we stay stuck in a negative communication loop at the expense of our own goals!  Out of spite, we refuse to communicate with the one who is standing in our way.  Who is hurt by this?  We are!  Don't allow your feelings of hurt and/or anger stand in the way of achieving your goals!

As a conflict intervention specialist my aim is to teach and empower you. I don’t  want to fix conflicts for you, but help you gain skills to resolve your own conflicts. Conflict coaching is a valuable approach to achieving this goal.

Working with a conflict coach supports you in the process to learn and practice tools for communication and self-reflection, and to gain skills for understanding and managing your conflicts and difficult conversations in all aspects of your life. 

The process involves deep listening and understanding of the various dynamics at play.  My approach is to gain a solid understanding of the beliefs and judgements that tend to play themselves out in our relationships.  The process may take a series of sessions on one issue, or separate sessions dealing with various issues, before a client is comfortable applying the new learning and techniques in the “heat” of the moment. Change generally happens with patience and self-acceptance, in addition to effort, and practice.

The beauty of conflict coaching is that it can help you learn how to handle even the most difficult relationships in your lives, in all realms, and begin to transform your life.
