So, the purpose of my closing my therapy practice and switching “modes” to coaching was primarily to be able to reach outside of the restrictions of the medical model, diagnostic labels and the state of California. I want to be able to reach Mid-Life Women in The Change, that can benefit from my support and guidance wherever they are, which a “therapist” cannot do.
And, I want to let women (and secretly the whole world!!) know that what they experience in this Change of Life Transition is not an illness, a curse, a crazy period (excuse the pun) or a mental illness!!
I like to refer to Christianne Northrup’s book: Women’s Bodies; Women’s Wisdom because she really speaks clearly and deeply to all those mood and emotional issues that arise during monthly cycles and during Menopause. THEY ARE NATURAL AND MEANINGFUL! Just because society – and dare I say the masculine portion of society? – don’t especially like or understand these rippling, fluid, movements of Women’s emotions, Psyche’s and attitudes does not mean there is something wrong with them! In fact … the more they are looked at like a problem and labeled as an illness or dis-ease that needs to be controlled and eliminated (with drugs and surgery) the worse the symptoms get.
Stop it already!!
In this effort to reach out across the globe and make contact with women suffering from social and cultural mud-slinging about this most beautiful stage of life transition
I have become a member of several different service providing, interactive websites like Thumbtack that offers a huge selection of various service providers and practitioners, like me, that you can search, learn about and hire for all sorts of things. Check it out … and PLEASE … leave me some comments now and then.
