Belief system

Our work is inspired by the practical work and epistemological ideas of Gregory Bateson, Humberto Maturana, John Dewey, the Milan School, Michael White, Tom Anderson and Ludwig Wittgenstein...

It is our belief that everyone has resources and competences. Sometimes we as people, parents, children or professionals get stuck and lose track. We need someone to assist us in making sense of our choice of thoughts, beliefs and actions.

We need someone to engage and creatively surprise and perturb us in generating new interest and enthusiasm in our lives and/or work.

We need someone to offer inspiration, new positions, new ideas and extended case management and an action plan of support.

We believe that symptoms often exist as a resource and message to us about something important in our lives that we need attending to and consider changing.

We believe that people live in and are co-creating partners in complex human, cultural and biological systems of meaning, actions, emotions and deeds.

It is our belief that people function best in environments where they can establish efficient, resourceful, focused, respectful, reflexive, creative, co-operative and coherent ways to go on with their life and their work with energy, focus, hope and visions.

We believe that dialogue can facilitate clarity, can re-create passion for your own life, your family and/or in your work. We believe that dialogue can promote your ability to make the right choices of action pointing to your future.

To obtain this, we use systemic communication techniques.

We offer services which aim to support peoples competences and empower them to get on with the different challenges and developments they face in life and in work. We work to find ways of encouraging people to manage complexity, patterns of actions and beliefs within the systems and situations they live in.

We value the existing resources that people have, coherence, the importance of context, communication and patterns. We make sure to involve the referral system and learn about all other professionals involved around any defined client. We work from a neutral position whilst understanding that we become part of a larger, coherent system.
