1. How do you usually work with clients?
When I first started working with men individually I noticed a common theme. “There is not enough support for men and we are seen as the bad guys, no matter what she has done”.
Many men leave it the point of desperation before they come for help. They have had suicidal thoughts or have attempted it, they are drinking or gambling too much. They just need someone to listen, to not judge, and to get some sensible advice on how to move forward – often their mates response is to have another drink or hook up, or simply “you’ll be right”. But sometimes they are not all right.
So I decided enough is enough. I wanted to create a program where men can come together no matter where they are, to learn, to support each other and to know that they matter.
Hence “After the Divorce” was born. This program incorporates years of learning and experience. I have been in a long term marriage that failed, I may be woman but I am not blind. I can see clearly men need help, and there is not enough out there. There are plenty of coaches to support women, but not enough for men.
Through psychology and coaching I have pulled together the resources needed to help men heal. And this isn’t about me. It is about men coming together to support one another. Together, we can help save lives, we can help men heal and reconnect, to their kids, to their friends to themselves.
2. What can I expect from the call?
During the call I will work with you to identify your goals for the next 12 months in terms of your personal life. This is not about surface goals, we will dive a little deeper than that. Why? Because if you don’t know what you want then you will never get there. And talking it through will help you get clarity.
You will have the opportunity to tell me what you want and why you are considering the program. If I see that what you want is what I am offering then I will explain the next steps.
3. Who is Leanne Kanzler?
Leanne Kanzler (BA Psych, HONS) has been a registered psychologist in Sydney, Australia for 10 years. She added coaching to her tool kit 4 years ago, when she realised that she needed more to help her clients, and herself, really move forward.
During this time she has worked with thousands of clients, dealing with trauma, workplace stress, grief and loss, relationship issues and more.
Leanne has always had a heart to help people. But the opportunity to do so only started when, after years of emotional put downs she went and saw a psychologist. After one visit she declared, “I’m not happy, I’m going back to university and I’m going to do Psychology”.
It was the start of a very turbulent time, but through it all she never gave up. She knew her marriage was not going to work but she stuck it out for the sake of her two young children.
It took a while, but when she finally realised that her time had come she ended the marriage and stood up for what she believed in. Through all this Leanne wants to teach others how to empower themselves, not by pushing down others, but through understanding themselves and growing emotionally.
Leanne writes for the online magazine, “Great Health Guide”, and is CEO of Reconnect Wellness Centre. She believes that we can never know enough and that ultimately we know for our self what we need, even though you may not realise it!
