                   Relationship Transitions

Johanna Courtleigh, MA, Licensed Professional Counselor, expert in Building Confidence and Self-Esteem, and Resolving Conflict, Depression, Anxiety, Stress and Eating Disorders* Are you going through a separation or divorce?

* Are you between relationships or starting a new one?

* Scared? Overwhelmed? Excited? Confused? Distressed?

* Worried about repeating the same mistakes next time?

* Confused about your sexuality?

* Or how past sexual experiences might affect your current or next relationship?

Whether you are leaving a current relationship or hoping to call in a new one, you are ripe for greater growth, healing and transformation.

“Johanna is masterful in asking just the right questions to help me know myself better and guide me in my process.”

Now is the time to build the skill, heart and stamina needed to create the kind of relationships that will allow you to thrive. Not only with others, but with yourself.

I help people going through relationship transitions use this time as an opportunity to grow, heal and fall more in love, as a state of Being.

I teach communication, assertiveness and relationship skills that will help you build better relationships, in all areas of your life.

It is possible, and I can help.

“We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the life that is waiting for us.”  Joseph Campbell

In Chinese, the pictograph for “Crisis” is made up of two different symbols: Danger and Opportunity.

The break-up of a significant relationship is a challenging, life-changing event. In it, there is the Danger of defeat, ‘failure’ and self-destructiveness. There is also the Opportunity to grow, acquire new skills, and deepen the one relationship we will be in every moment for the rest of our lives–our relationship with ourselves.

It is this relationship we must more and more deeply come to love, honor and cherish. Then we can live Happily Ever After, no matter what the external circumstances in our lives may be.

Moving from partnered to single—whether through divorce or the end of a long-term relationship—allows us the opportunity to look at the patterns and beliefs we adopted from our culture and families of origin. Old, outmoded habits of thought, feeling and behavior can be recognized and disassembled, and new skills acquired to manage the many, varied and often challenging feelings and life-demands that arise in such times of transition, grief and loss.

We can then begin to rebuild a core of deeper self-love, awareness, personal empowerment, ease and integrity—internally, and in our relationships with others.

This allows us to create happier, more fulfilling lives, whether we choose to remain single, or enter into relationship once again.

Some of this work is based on training I had with Katherine Woodward-Thomas.
