WHAT IS "STRATEGIC" COUNSELLING AND INTERVENTION?
Everyone faces bad times and difficult situations. Life can throw us many challenges and there are times when many of us are caught in a painful roadblock that we just can't seem to climb out of. Depression, anxiety, stress, feelings of hopelessness and helplessness all clearly highlight the struggles that so many people face. But not everyone struggles this way.
There are specific skills you can develop to overcome this and prevent these feelings from overtaking your life. More than that you can use these exact same skills to create any life you desire for yourself. The same tools you use to overcome hardship are the same exact tools you will use to create the life of your dreams. You can break the pattern of any negative emotion and behaviour and learn to harness your emotions in ways you have never dreamed possible.
Strategic Intervention uses the most powerful and effective process available today for creating dramatic and lasting emotional and behavioural change. It is the accumulation of the most powerful processes known to not only transform but redefine your current reality.
