Warmest greetings to you all.
This announcement will come as a surprise to many of you I am sure. I am so sad to share that I have had to take a decision to leave the Centre. The decision earlier this year to bring investors into LifeWorks has not gone as I had hoped and expected and my decision to extricate myself from the very difficult situation is based on a fundamental disagreement on the basics of how to operate a centre such as this. I can no longer see myself continuing with the current approach.
When the LifeWorks Centre was founded, our intention was to be a home in our community where people would feel safe, welcomed and cared for where our philosophy of compassion, authenticity and mindful awareness could grow and take fruit, a place people would want to come back to time and again. Sadly for us all, a severe clash of management styles has occurred such that it is no longer possible for me to sanction the current approach or to be a part of this happening under the LifeWorks brand.
As valued clients, I want you to know that I am not a part of and do not endorse in any way the newly opened Holistic Counselling Centre, currently operating under the LifeWorks brand. The values, ethos, methodologies, and philosophies that for so long have been the hallmark of the LifeWorks approach are not reflected in the running of the new Holistic Counselling Centre. It is for the same reason that it has become impossible for me to continue at the Personal Development Training Centre.
This means that I will no longer be working in the Personal Development Training Centre as I work towards wrapping up the business relationship between myself and the investors. If you have appointments pending in the next few weeks and months, or are on the waiting list, you can be sure that you will be contacted personally to ensure that your needs are taken care of.
So whats next?
You can trust that I will be in touch with you and will let you know what arrives for us on this wonderful and ever changing journey. Whatever will happen next will be revealed. I look forward to sharing that with you and want to take this opportunity to thank you for the support, loyalty and love I have experienced since LifeWorks opened in 2010 and prior to that when operating as Counselling Dubai.
Warmest best to you all,
Thank you for all your responses to the above newsletter - for all the wonderful emails and messages of care and understanding during this very difficult time for our staff and clients. Many of you have been with us from the beginning and together we have forged a strong and confident path...
I will use these words from a client as they describe perfectly the messages and responses we have received.
I read your email with sadness...
As I can only imagine how difficult it is when you plant a tree and nurture it with all the wonderful natural food and light ... And suddenly someone starts pouring chemical fertilizers on it!
The tree will produce beautiful colored flowers and people will be drawn to it by the look of it, not understanding that the roots and inner core may be about to rot....
Well, although it's devastating to know that tree cannot be saved ... I have no doubts you will plant so many more!
And I look forward to visiting you in your "forest" :-)
