John Schurmann Practice Description
I would like to welcome you and to commend you for taking responsibility for your health and wellness. Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. For over 30 years, I have empowered clients to successfully manage a myriad of personal problems and challenges for an improved quality of life. As a social worker, psychotherapist, life coach and ADHD specialist, I draw on extensive experience to customize treatment that address each client’s mental, emotional, spiritual, relational and social needs. Unlike many counsellors who only focus on life issues, my expertise in life coaching is an additional specialty that benefits clients. My proven counselling techniques and practical life coaching tools provide quick results and equip clients with the know-how to self-manage their lives more effectively. I found that the majority of people need life skills training, whether it’s dealing with stress, anger or looking to improve their relationships. My goal is to help you with your worries, anger, anxieties, conflicts, stressors and pains. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we will work together to better understand and resolve the challenges in your life. To treat the entire person, I will help you get a good understanding of your issues. You want to know why you are depressed or anxious. You want to know why you struggle with anger, an addiction, an affair or low self-esteem. Once you have a good understanding of the issues, I will help promote your natural life skill abilities. I found that the majority of people need life skills training, whether it’s dealing with communication, stress, anger, resolving conflicts, an addiction or wanting to improve personal relationships. I coach clients to share their thoughts, feelings and needs properly. I teach active listening skills and problem solving techniques. I supplement the sessions with literature, readings, and assessment tools so that the clients have good tools to practice with. These are proven methods that provide very quick and lasting results. I know you have an innate ability to solve problems, but often you feel overwhelmed and cannot solve the issues alone. If you are struggling then don’t wait until it is too painful. Lets begin the journey to self-discovery, healing, and growth so you can live the life you were always meant to have. Call me or go to my website and book an appointment online.
