Conversations are integral to every part of your life, occurring internally as well as externally with others. How you use and navigate them will shape your self-perception, your interactions and the quality of your personal, social and professional relationships.
Conversations activate different parts of the brain, each with its own chemistry. Some conversations leave you feeling excited and energised while others leave you bored, disappointed, or even angry. They can create connection and closeness or resistance and distance; inspire and catalyse co-operation or build barriers and silos.
And some conversations are not ‘conversations’ at all. They are solo events!
We all hold different views of reality in our minds and often times the words we use to share our reality don’t convey the picture we intend. This leads to misconceptions which, if not corrected, can escalate into conflict. Co-operation is side-lined by defensive and protective behaviours.
” . . . get[ting] to the next level of greatness depends on the quality of the culture, which depends
on the quality of relationships, which depends on the quality of conversations.“
Judith E. Glaser, Social Anthropologist

After a few sessions with Virginia I felt in control again . . . I have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone who is experiencing stress on any level.Lorraine
Virginia . . . has helped me see that it was my ‘inner dialogue’ that caused my anxiety and depression – ailments which were paralysing me and prevented me from moving forward and undertaking paid work of any kind. By challenging my original belief systems and thought processes, Virginia has enabled me to grow as a person, to become the ‘real me’. Now, my mental health has improved so much that I earn a steady income from copy-editing and proofreading, and writing articles which are published internationally!Rita Smith
