LOVE OR FEAR
Like many people in the Helping Professions I became involved with finding a solution when I was stuck in the Swamp and had no idea how to get out.
Over years of practicing my trade as a counselor, I've found healing for myself as well as others. I've found many resources that have helped to a varying degree. As new tools were found, they were added to aid in the process of healing. Old tools were discarded when they were found to be less than effective. At this point in my ongoing journey I've put all I've learned into a template for change called "Going from the Swamp to the Meadow: Left/Right Brain Fusion". The model is of two parts - identifying the Swamp, the drama and problems in our lives that have made us sick and tired, and the Meadow -The place where we would like to be more of the time.
Discovering what stops us from just leaving the swamp and going to the meadow is the process of healing.
