I am being called to this need, within myself, and in what I feel, hear, observe from others.
Please join me for a support group to vent, share, commiserate, reinvent, vision, and share. On-going cycles of 8 weeks. The 8th time we will go out for a meal together and celebrate. The group will be moderated to a max of 10 people so we can really relate.
I carry a lot arrows in my quiver, from a knowledge of how to make sure everyone gets room to share and be listened to, including extensive training in NonViolent Communication ™ , (a kind of empathic active listening which I will at times coach you in), Active Imagination techniques like visualization, writing and drawing exercises, the use of myth and story, as well as a grounding in unconditional empathic regard. I hope we can have some fun, some healing, and some moments of deepness and authenticity. Groups are organic and the members of each cycle of eight meetings will dictate the structure of the activities and the nature of the conversations and sharing.
We can invent this together as we go along. Let's talk.
I am a California trained MFT psychotherapist (MFT = Marriage and Family Therapist). I am also a trained facilitator and mediator. I am bi-cultural, American and Suisse and have been living in the European Francophonie off and on for over many decades. This gives me a certain perspective on the expat experience, international marriage experiences and the challenges inherent in any relationship. I also personally share your pain, and hopefully your joy, as I fit the demographic.
