Facilitator, Counsellor, Coach
Hello and welcome.
Recently I saw a fridge magnet that made me smile and wince at the same time:
The more people I meet the more I like my dog.
Unfortunately (or fortunately), we have more dealings and relationships with people than with dogs, so it works and makes life easier and happier if we like and enjoy people and dogs!
My name is Leah O’Brien-Addison, and I am a Communication and Relationship Facilitator, Coach, and Counsellor. I have a background in education, counselling, coaching, and business management.
My professional and life experience affirm for me that when our relationships are working well, it is great to be alive! When they are not, life can be a struggle. Another observation is that many people I know, or read about, seem to be wanting to get into - or out of - close relationships... so relationships must be important in life!
I am passionate about the value and importance of healthy, life-giving relationships, in all areas of life. I love the work I do, and have been privileged to work with a number of people over the years who want to have great relationships - both at home and at work.
I can help you to explore and understand your communication and relationship patterns, and to find new ways to enrich the important relationships in your life. I have a wide range of experience and use methods including Imago Relationship Therapy, Myers-Brigg personality types, the Enneagram, Core-Energetics, Transactional Analysis, Dynamic Improvements, and Open Up Communication, among others.
I have a special interest in men’s issues, and I am deeply concerned about the high rate of depression in today’s world, and the resulting impact on individuals, families, and on workplace productivity. As the mother of four sons and two step-sons, I am committed to a world that works for everyone - for men and for the important women in their lives.
In summary, I can offer you:
- Over 30 years experience as a communication facilitator and educator
- Relationship Coaching using Imago principles and methods
- Couple and individual coaching:
- Enriching good relationships
- Conflict management
- Mediation and concilliation
- Minimising the pain of separation and divorce
- Workplace communication and leadership coaching
- Support with stress management and depression
I would love to discuss your individual needs and aspirations with you. Contact me for a complimentary 15min chat about how I may be able to help you to improve your communication and relationships so that you can enjoy your dog - and the people in your life!
