Welcome to nadiathonnard.com.
I have been providing comprehensive Counselling/ Coaching & Family Mediation services to individuals, couples and families since 2009.
As a keen Choice Theorist, most of my work is based on Choice Theory, the work of William Glasser, MD, and is the culmination of some 50 years of theory and practice in psychology and counselling. During the process of learning Choice Theory, one is introduced to the “Brain Chart” (see here).
To move beyond the intimidation and complexity of this chart, one needs to at least complete a Basic Intensive Training in Choice Theory, Reality Therapy and Lead Management.
In order to apply this knowledge in my everyday Family Mental Health & Wellness Practice, I have deconstructed and reconstructed it in a way that I perceive meaningful to me and have, from there, designed what I now use widely in all my Counselling and Coaching work:
The Blueprint – An exploration of human behaviour & how to create change, because in essence, Change Begins Within!
A Blueprint is a guide for making something — it’s a design or pattern that can be followed.
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. – Aristotle
The greatest and most important adventure of our lives is discovering who we really are and, to find our self, we must first learn about our self. All too often, we may fall into a trap where we imagine that happiness lies outside ourselves and where we look for permission from others on who to be.
Finding your self is not easy, but it’s worth it.
Once you know yourself, you become more confident and know what’s important to you. It means that you know who you are, where your values lie and you let your internal compass be your guide.
Exploring the 5 elements of one’s Blueprint is done in an informal and casual manner where I invite my clients to (re) connect with themselves and embrace a much needed REALITY Check to move from problem to solution.
