“I met Jodie at the suggestion of my employer, I’d lost motivation, was miserable to be around both at work and at home, and deep down I knew I wasn’t being the best “me” I could be.

The first session I had with Jodie was primarily me just sitting back and listening. There were lots of questions, time for reflection, and uncomfortable silence on occasion, but I was cautious and in hindsight I didn’t make it easy for Jodie. That evening I had time to think about what we talked about and it dawned on me that only I could make the changes I needed to make, and only if I wanted to change.

After that first session I did the homework, listened more intently, researched a little, and participated as best I could. Jodie was very insightful, and I learned a lot, mostly about myself. I learned to be in the moment, to value what’s important to me and use that as motivation to turn things around.

6 months later and I’m not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but I think I’m very close to being “me” again, even the family has noticed a big difference. I’m looking forward to the future and I’m indebted to Jodie for helping (challenging) me to find this path forward.”
