"""People Solutions. Psychology, Life Coaching, and Counselling deals with the everyday issues of ordinary people. No two people are the same and no two relationships are the same. “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina. However, there are common themes. One common theme is that “knowing” and “doing” are two separate things. We know that while it is good to talk, eventually change is about doing things differently. We will listen and help you develop insights into your feelings, interpersonal relationships, behaviour, and thinking. From the insights we gain we help you build practical, proven steps towards change. In the time between sessions you put these planned changes in managing feelings, interpersonal relationships, behaviour and thinking into practice and gradually build up new skills until they become habitual. We measure and graph your progress and discuss changes in depression, anxiety and stress measures with you. If change is not occurring we discuss options such as solving unidentified problems, returning to your GP for medication or spending more time on applied exercises between sessions. At People Solutions you won’t find thought-of-the-day clichés, crystals, candles, bead curtains, incense, past life regression, bush flower essences, mantras, tarot cards, zombies, mind-reading, vampires, witchcraft or magic spells. As fascinating as these things may be, they are not psychology and play no part in counselling. Our practice is based on the science of human behaviour. As such it is free from religious, political or other affiliations or biases. At People Solutions you will find practical skills and understanding of complex behaviour and thinking. These understandings are based on scientific research and explained to you in simple, everyday language. We build on the abilities and habits you bring to the practice. We build on your strengths. You learn to manage and control your thoughts and emotions not the other way around. We help you develop interpersonal skills to manage work and family relationships better. We help you develop practical thinking skills for everyday living.
