Because of Marian's wide area of experience she is able to offer facilitation in all of the concerns listed below.  If your concern is not named or listed please contact Marian as the list only provides some of the human concens which can be encountered in life.

  • Relationships - We can often experience relationship difficulties with each other in our lives and sometimes we experience difficulty with how we relate to who we are as a person.  Sometimes this is experienced in words like 'I dont feel confident' or 'I'm not sure if I'm liked' etc. These concerns are often experienced as rejections, abandonments, seperations, abuse etc and can cause a person significant difficulties.
  • Depression - Depression is a very common concern in todays world but it doesnt always require tablets.  Most depression can be alleviated by and through talking out the concerns which weigh you down and as you unburden yourself a way forward is often realised.
  • Grief & Loss - At certain times in our lives we all experience the grief associated with the loss of someone or something in our lives, it is a natural and normal response.  Sometimes a person finds it helps to talk especially if the loss is significant in your life.  This can be a person, a job, and even for some a close animal.
  • Bullying - Sadly today this is a growing trend not just at school but in the workplace and society situations.  It can affect anyone at any time depending on the situations a person finds their self in.
  • Addiction - whether you are the person troubled with the 'addictive concern' or whether you are a family member or friend concerned with the affects upon your relationship with the person 'addicted' your way of life can be significantly affected in many ways.  Addiction is like depression although more complex, that it is a result of an underlying and often deeply rooted difficult concern.  The fascilitation often involves discovering the root cause and this assists in managing the present concerns.
  • Spirituality - Many, people experience spiritual concerns, sometimes they are faith based, sometimes there is a spiritual concern within all of the above.  Sometimes we experience the need to simply explore our spirituality from a non judgemental perspective, so we do not feel guilty or pressured to comply with common practice.  To be enabled to fascilitate your own choices or to explore how your spirituality has been affected through your own personal experience with the world around you.  Sometimes we just feel lost or soul sick which is different from depression but both are often described as an emptiness or alone-ness. 


If you can recognise yourself in any of the above and would like to begin to find a way forward, please contact me or if you do not recognise your concern in the brief listing please inquire there is alot I have left off the list.
