I have decided to offer personal consultations via Skype. In a few weeks I will add a tab to my header offering this.
To kick off this new stage for Living Authentically I will be offering consultations in exchange for a testimonial (ideally in the format of before and after. Or in more detail: I had this problem, what I did with Evan, the result for me was . . .). This offer is open until September 30th, 2010. Please remember that I am in Sydney, on the east coast of Australia. You can use the World Clock to figure out how my time relates to yours. If you think you would like to talk to me, please get in touch via this blog or email to arrange a mutually satisfactory time for us to talk. Looking forward to hearing from you, Evan.
In preparation for this offer I asked some people who I have worked with who they would refer to me. One I liked particularly put it this way:
I would refer someone to you who needed help and support finding out and accepting who they really are and what they really need. One of your best skills, in my experience, is facilitating, encouraging and supporting this process.
In More Detail
Following is the copy that I will be using on the Work With Evan page, which is going up after September 30th. It should give you a good outline of what to expect and answer most questions. Any other questions, comments or enquiries you can leave in the comments or contact me via the Contact page on this blog.
If you would like to work with me one on one you can. I offer personal sessions via skype – speaking or text chat, whichever you prefer. (My current internet account is too limited to allow me to do video.)
The best way to get a sense of who I am is to read around on the blog (try typing in the topics you are interested in into the search box and see if you find what I have to say seems worthwhile to you) and read the about page.
A lasting satisfaction in our lives is possible. My understanding of the process of life and how to flow with it (which brings lasting satisfaction) is given in this series of posts. A good sample of my approach is in my free report. In a one on one session I will respond to what you want – I won’t put you through my process but respond to what you want.
Why you might want a one on one session
- If you are finding that you have read lots and tried lots of things,
- If you have got some places but not where you want to be yet,
- If you feel that something is eluding you and you don’t know what,
- it may be that talking to someone personally is the missing piece you need.
What you can expect from me
- To have your boundaries respected
- To be listened to
- That I will be able to handle what you have to say
- To hold the space
- To accompany you on your journey to authenticity
- To ask you what you want (this is normally the first thing I ask)
What you can’t expect from me
You know yourself and your situation far better than I do. Any advice I would offer would likely be a waste of time. I do sometimes offer observations – e.g. that you have missed something obvious, or that you haven’t tried an available option, or that you have persisted with doing the same thing in the same way (that hasn’t worked yet).
I see my job as helping you to find clarity so that you can live an authentic life. This may involve me approving of behaviour, or parts of yourself, that you judge negatively. I have found that usually the behaviour we dislike, or find problematic, is our best attempt to meet legitimate needs.
In a nutshell: if we stay open and stay with it, it works.
This means staying open to, and staying with, the disliked and disowned parts of ourselves too. As well as staying with the positive and brilliant parts of ourselves (which can sometimes be surprisingly difficult).
If we do this then it is possible to resolve our inner fights – and release the energy used up in the inner turmoil to engage with other aspects of life. This normally is experienced as an initial elation or release (which can sometimes be through sadness). The energy freed up is then used to make modifications to our life so that we can live with more authenticity and satisfaction.
