Dynamic Life Coaching
"After twenty years of practice as a registered psychotherapist, I have developed an approach to working with gifted individuals which has proved very successful. I call it 'Dynamic Life Coaching' because it combines the profound insights of psychotherapy with the positive reality of life coaching. Why coaching rather than psychotherapy or counseling? Because my own experience as a 'recovering' gifted person and my many years of practice have shown me that the medical model of working with distressed or dissatisfied gifted people is simply not relevant to most." Christopher J. Coulson, MAHPP

developing a sense of self-worth
Often in our society, we are bombarded with the lives of celebrities. We can end up feeling that if we are not part of the rich and famous, our lives are insignificant.
Our society also sends a message of competition and achievement. We watch sports, we always hear about profit and the bottom line being the dollar, we see large companies competing and constantly buying each other out.
The result often is that we are taught to see how well we are doing, in terms of how pretty we are, how bright we are, what kind of house we have, how well we do in sports, what rewards we receive.
However, in reality, these are external measures. Each of us needs to develop a sense of self-worth, a capacity for positive self-regard that comes from within.

"I believe that everyone has a unique personal expression and vision. We each bring a unique combination of skills and vulnerabilities to our work and life and part of what I do is help people follow those true voices in the back of our mind. The ones that surface when our mind is quiet and grounded. The ones that are most true for us yet can often seem in conflict with other people’s agendas for us. I believe if we’re doing our best and most personal work, our life will be more satisfying and ultimately more commercially successful. David Brownstein
