What causes emotional suffering?
What causes mental suffering?
If you and I were in a room with 20 other people as I asked those questions, there would very likely be 22 different replies.
Who would be correct?
All of us have our own individual experiences and no two people are completely alike. Our reasons and explanations for feeling the way we do, quite obviously, vary in a vast array of circumstances and situations.
Undeniably, though, we do suffer, and often, we want to find a solution, but feel lost. Feeling like we have nowhere or no one to turn to will often make us feel worse.
The trap of feeling that we should be able to deal with our own problems hangs over us. We might feel that we will be judged in some way by those around us if it becomes known that we’re not coping as well as we “should”. Even the pressure of our own self-expectations can bring us to the point where we feel inadequate or that we’ve failed ourselves.
A very good friend of mine once said, “Everyone should have at least one mentor”. It does seem to be true that those who handle life more easily and have a greater measure of peace have someone that they call or regard as a mentor or advisor.
We all, at some point in our lives, may become subject to mental and emotional distractions. Sometimes we know why, and other times we need assistance to identify exactly what the problem is.
That’s why I decided to start a FREE weekly drop-in Zoom call for anyone who feels a need to talk about their situation.
These public Zoom calls are open to anyone who may be facing a life challenge in any way, absolutely free of charge. They run at various times throughout the day, every Wednesday.

You can also arrange private coaching sessions with Zander during the zoom call. For more information about private, one-to-one sessions, please see the coaching page.
