What's in Your Hope Formula?
contagious, serendipitous, accelerant of relief, omnipresent, euphoric
HOPE + TOOLS= RELIEF
Within my personal and professional relationships I have experienced HOPE as the biggest and most consistent predictor of one’s success. I am convinced of its reliability in bringing about healing.
Humans are hard wired to avoid pain and danger and approach relief, safety or comfort. This is directly related to our survival “fight, flight or freeze” mechanism. HOPE brings forth the potential of relief, safety or comfort, usually igniting people to take some form of action, however small.
However, if your usual ways of seeking relief or comfort is not working and you are in a prolonged state of pain, you are more likely to experience hopelessness. This when I can help “hold” your hope while we strengthen your coping skills, until you can hold it for yourself.
