The Help and Information here are not just "Psychological", "Philosophical", "Medical" nor
"Theological": rather it a distillation of knowledge based on the wisdom garnered by humans over
the ages - and added-to by former clients,   students - and through observing people in many
places and situations during a long time-frame.   They are based on Life in all its glory.

LIFE is meant to be Lived!
Life is NOT: your job, career, "role" or profession; those are only the means of income that allows    
you to live Life! Life is NOT: your household and property chores, tasks and maintenance; these      
are simply the    things that enhance and maintain the quality and atmosphere of the place where     
you do much of your "living".

Life IS:
  • your personal state of being in all your wholeness.
  • being at peace in harmony with yourself and with your loved ones.
  • the actualizing and development of your full spiritual and emotional potential:
who you were meant to be - in all your fullness.
  • a celebration of your relationship with yourself - and with others; for it is the
foundation and basis from which the inner strength comes to handle and cope
all the things life brings you.

"Everything in your life is there as a vehicle for your transformation.
Use it!" "We're all walking each other home".
~Ram Dass

Every Journey begins with a single step.
Yours too; your
First step . . .
No one can walk with you till you take that first step, beautiful person.

Helping the Wounded Create Their Healing Space

NOTE: Please remember that the various "disorders" are
classifications that mental health professionals use to    
narrow things down to help them arrive at the causes of the
challenges and "ailments": they are NOT real. It is time to
demystify them, and the site is continually being updated     
and revised to facilitate this. Since there is a lot of   
information here, many (or most) pages are in transition.
I hope they may be helpful to you.

The many shades of being and behaviour human beings  
come in, is at times totally baffling, sometimes frustrating or
bewildering, and sometimes annoying or hurtful. And at    
other times people seem to rise above themselves and are
caring, joyful and considerate.

* There are those who seem blithely or blissfully unaware
of the effects their behaviour, words and actions have on
others; or are aware but don't understand the fuss; and
there are those who are totally aware, but couldn't
care less.
 NOTE: related support links follow below.
* On the opposite side of that, are those who are on the receiving end of the  
above, desperately wondering how anyone could be so unaware, or hurtfully         
to know that the other is aware but appears to have actually chosen to be (or    
stay) that way. And they want to  understand it, or discover what they can do   
about it, or not.

Untangling it is not easy: there are "Issues", "Challenges",  "Syndromes",
"Disorders",  "Spectrums (Spectra)" and all sorts of other names and labels
attempting to make some sort of order into that seeming chaos.

I do not have "
THE" answer(s) for   you, but I can help YOU find the answer(s)    
you need. (The answer(s) are
already inside you  - you'll rediscover them on      
your healing journey, here and elsewhere).

I have nothing to sell: I simply provide "Roadside Assistance", so to speak, for  
Healing and Recovery in a Fear-based
Shaming-Blaming culture that  is often   
very much
Fear-Based: a Culture of Dysfunction - but not as widespread as it     
may seem, or feel. But you'll find many encouraging examples of many, many
exceptions to it, here.

There are two important truths you'll rediscover as you browse the site:
1 - YOU are not your
"Label", your  "Disorder", or your "Disease", and,
2 - OTHERS are not their
"Label", their "Disorder", or their "Disease", etc.
