In general, people could save difficulty and pain in their lives by learning about themselves and their patterns of relating before making or breaking commitments. People often wait until a crisis develops. Often they wish they had come earlier.
Either partner may avoid or ‘learn to ignore’ a host of seemingly insignificant annoyances, expecting them to magically change or ‘go away’. Their cumulative effect can seriously erode or destroy the quality of the relationship. Often people puzzle how things have got so bad or what can be done to put things right.
Men in particular - willing to ‘do anything to save my marriage’ - often phone in the midst of complete crisis. Freely admitting they have avoided talking about things over a long period, they may be devastated to discover the option closed because they have been already supplanted by ‘ someone who listens to me ’.
Erickson demonstrated in many ways how the human mind floats in a sea of much deeper awareness. Respectful and creative engagement can set it free in new and profoundly liberating directions - both mental and physical.
Getting to ‘ Easy '
The approach aims to unlock your unconscious resourcefulness and re-connect it in new ways. You may not realise it - but work begins from the very first contact - perhaps even as you read this !
No matter how a problem is labelled, each client brings new experience. The initial aim is simple - to learn what is the case and to discover how it happens.
Using this constructive mode of enquiry, the very way we uncover the difficulty begins to reveal your own unique qualities and capacities. Things often begin to shift and change straightaway - even before we attempt anything deliberate.
You can be amazed - how readily movement happens - what you can do - and how easily it happens !!
Under each heading you may find some quite detailed material - some can only be in outline - how it actually will happen is unique to you. I hope you that you find these pages encouraging and that they leave you curious ... interested .… and HOPEFUL !
