Alistair McKinnon – Conscious Directions
Relationship Coaching and workshops
I can help you if you’re are an individual, part of a couple and/or a parent who is struggling with your relationships and you would enjoy some support to gain clarity and re-connection with the people that are important in your life.
Relationships are, for some of us, the greatest challenge of our lives. Relationships can confront us in a way that few other things do. To meet the challenge and for our relationships to change, it requires us to look at our relationships in a new way.
For example, it can be very easy to withhold honesty from the other in an attempt to keep the peace or to respond to a request from the other out of a sense of obligation or duty to them. These two strategies are very commonly used in many relationships. They may work in the short term however they also will often lead to a damaging build up of resentment that could, over time, threaten either the relationship itself or to shut down your own life force and make you feel like you are living a lie.
Would you like to unravel the assumptions you have around relationship that confuse you?
Would you like to learn a new way of communicating that brings you closer to those you love?
If you apply what I teach you, the benefits you will experience will be:
- A greater enjoyment of your relationships
- A deeper level of intimacy in your relationship
- A building of respect for each other
- Skills that ensure your voice will be heard by your partner or children
- Confusion and doubt around your relationships will fall away – you will find great clarity and means of expression.
- Your relationship moves forward and doesn’t just keep rehashing the same old issues.
- Regaining the excitement and inspiration you had when you started your relationship
What to expect in a session
- I work with people in groups of sessions that are normally an hour and a half each. A number of sessions are necessary to uncover the patterns of relating that are not working so well and then to coach you through the introduction of a new way of communicating that is guaranteed to make a difference to your life and relationships. The number of sessions required will be discussed at an obligation free first session.
- There is no cost for the first session. Any on-going work is quoted at the first session.
- I bring an empathetic approach that means that clients feel deeply heard, sometimes for the first time in their lives. This engenders trust and safety. People often comment that they feel very safe working with me.
I also offer 2 day programs on relationships and parenting. For more information contact me via Camberwell Health and Healing.
A description of the modality and what it is
I am a coach, facilitator and trainer in personal development with a focus on how spirituality can inform our lives. I ran my first relationship program in 1996 and have also run parenting and leadership programs amongst others. In each case I am interested in how to bring more realness to how we behave with the people we love and share our lives with.
What I have found is that the more real we can be, the more alive we feel, the more energy and passion we connect with and the more capable we become at having fulfilling and enriching relationships with our partners, children and anyone else important in our lives.
But the journey to realness is not as difficult as it might at first appear.
I teach a process that offers a step by step approach to gradually deepen into realness, relationship effectiveness and enjoyment.
