Are you looking for new solutions to your problems? Do you need to talk to someone about what’s happening in your life? Do You feel confused or stuck? Take your first step toward a brighter tomorrow with a phone consultation with Dr. Simone…
A Phone Consultation:
- Is More Convenient
- Saves time
- Is Easier
- You can call from the comfort of your home or car:)
- There is no obligation or long-term commitment
It is my pleasure to announce that I am now available for phone consultations of anywhere from 10 to 60 minutes. I’ve decided to expand my practice in this direction to provide opportunities for communication with those of you who may only have a question or two, or those who would like to share a personal experience and want to understand it better, or those who would like to get a fresh perspective on what’s happening in their lives and find new solutions to their old problems.
This is a great opportunity for those of you who live far away from my office, or do not feel comfortable to come in for an office visit, or those who want to do a quick consultation on something that has been bothering them or doesn’t feel right but they can’t put their finger on it …
Obstacles that could Prevent you from Taking Advantage of this Phone Consultation Opportunity
A problem some of you might face which can prevent you from scheduling a phone consultation is the social stigma you might believe to be attached to seeking consultation from a professional. Another obstacle might be the common belief that “consultation does not work.” The third hurdle to overcome is “the fear of disclosing your private feelings, thoughts and attitudes; the fear of feeling vulnerable, misunderstood or judged.” But that’s not the end of the problem… What makes this even worse is the fact that you might assume that others will think that you are weak if you seek help for a problem because you are supposed to solve your problems on your own(!) which means you won’t dare seek consultation; and, because problems almost NEVER go away on their own or with time, they will get worse and continue to negatively impact more areas of your life, leaving you feeling stuck…
And, worst of all, some of us can’t get past the idea that seeking professional consultation is a waste of time or will take too long with little or no long-term results.
All this can make trying to figure out how to create happiness, success, and fulfillment in your life and relationships a nightmare!
How to Overcome these Obstacles to Engaging in a Phone Consultation
First of all, let’s remember that most of the very successful people we know, like Oprah, have had a coach at some point of their journey because they knew it well that they did not have to reinvent the wheel… If someone has had success in an area or more and is willing to share her/his experiences, then why not utilize their hard-earned expertise and achieve your goals faster and in smoother ways?
Secondly, it is an act of courage to seek help to achieve your goals. If you are afraid of asking for help then you have now even more reasons to do it anyway, to overcome the fear of taking action of any kind, regardless of what others might say or think, which could be an ongoing obstacle in your life. “Fear” is one of the most harmful road blocks to our happiness and the sooner you overcome it, the better off you will be… Please look back at all the opportunities you have probably missed out on just because you were afraid of rejection, being judged under a negative light or feeling misunderstood… And remember that the person you are seeking consultation from is a human being like you who has made more mistakes than you can think of, and has faced those fears numerous times in her life and has found ways to overcome them and is willing to share them with you…
And thirdly, not all consultants are successful in helping everyone with all different kinds of problems… So, it is very helpful to be curious about your prospective consultant’s professional accomplishments to see if they are the right person to be in the trenches with you until you solve the problems you are facing now… So, please take a minute to look at my background and experience below, and decide for yourself if you feel I am the right consultant for you…
