Changing Stories -
Compassionate Inquiry Therapy
Changing Stories - Compassionate Inquiry Therapy is for people looking to move into a more compassionate and deeper therapeutic examination of how past trauma is currently impacting their lives in the form of addictions, struggles with mental health issues, high stress and anxiety and / or midlife challenges. Compassionate Inquiry is a powerful psychotherapeutic approach developed by Dr. Gabor Maté.
The point of CI is to drill down to those course stories that people tell themselves. To get them to see what stories they are telling themselves unconsciously, what those beliefs are and where they came from. To guide them to the possibility of letting go of those stories or letting go of the hold those stories have on them. Through Compassionate Inquiry, the client can recognize the unconscious dynamics that run their lives and how to liberate themselves from them.
Frank's curiosity for who we are as human beings motivate him to examine pathways to our authentic selves and how our personal and collective histories define our beliefs and interactions. His approach comes from the heart - it is gentle, clear and intuitive.

Equipping People to Drive Lasting Change - Transformation Success Story
Assumption Life, Moncton, New Brunswick
Culture Change is challenging, yet the work leaves us deeply hopeful. We have been immersed and bathed in a cultural a story for generations; one grounded in the beliefs of patriarchal and colonial frameworks. The impacts of these stories have been so negative and harmful that we are now at a cross roads where the only responsible choice is to change our culture. The Covid 19 pandemic has forced many of us to slow down, and this has often resulted in our becoming more present, attuned and connected. By developing deeper relationships with ourselves, other people and to the natural world, the negative impacts we see become less tolerable, and our shared motivation for lasting change evolves. There is an invitation in the air. Let's change now.
