We all have relationships. They can be between family members, work colleagues or friends. We all have interactions and need to be able to communicate. It’s when the communication channels break down through your assumptions or expectations being out of alignment that relationships issues occur.
I work with many different relationship issues – husband and wife issues, mother and child issues, relationships with the in-laws, with work colleagues, between friends. Communication is always the problem. Added to this there are often unrealistic expectations of behaviour and wanting the other person to conform to your views.
The saying “you can’t change anyone, you can only change yourself” is true. The challenge is to be open to understanding your expectations and belief systems. When you find ways to adjust them conflict is reduced and greater appreciation is experienced. By changing yourself you become the role model for others to follow.
We are all unique in how we were brought up. This applies to the values and belief systems we have that drive our behaviour. When you allow yourself to step back and be open to new perspectives on what is happening then new behaviours can be learned and different outcomes achieved.
All too often we ‘react’ to situations rather than taking a breath and asking “what is really happening here?” With a greater understanding of why you behave as you do, you’ll have the potential to change old habits that no longer work for you to ones that do.
Whatever the relationship issue I can support you in looking at it differently and teach you skills to change your behaviour so that there is more harmony in your interactions.

“I met Jackie at a time in my life that was very stressful, headaches, anxiety and self-doubt plagued me. I could not find joy in life. Through her healing hands, I have been able to rediscover my joy for life. Her Indian head massage with flower essence remedies have reduced my stress, headaches are gone. I feel confident and now perform better at work.
I have also benefitted from Jackie’s guidance, she has taught me simple yet very effective exercises. Her gentle, calming and professional manner have given me back a sense of ‘me’ I thought I had lost forever.
If you want a professional individual who is respectful and cares – then I highly recommend Jackie.” Mary, Viewbank
