We all face a variety of stressors in our lives. We typically approach dealing with these stressors by focusing on the problem. ReDesign is an alternative approach that focuses on solutions.
Through ReDesign you will:
• Learn to analyze your life
• Formulate goals
• Develop realistic strategies to reach those goals
• Identify and build off your strengths and assets
• Reduce and/or eliminate the stressors that are holding you back
ReDesign is a holistic approach to life transformation that can lead you to an overall improvement in your quality of life.
