Previous Post: The blog page “About”:

We discussed in the blog post “About” issues like the procedure for determining your requirements. We reviewed the services we offer, and how they are provided, such as mediation, counseling, and support. Jen’ Geary’s history, credentials, and experiences were then discussed before we concluded with some caveats. This page describes our commitment to advancing education and recognizing human rights, as well as our mission, goal, values, and strategic plan. We investigate different points of entrance to create a setting where individuals can optimize their health. We then go over the services in more depth. As an example, we offer a few components and techniques that could be used with the services we provide.

Mission:

It’s our mission to create an inclusive and inviting space for all while advancing education and promoting human rights. To that end, we’re committed to providing a range of services such as mediation, counseling, and whole-of-person support. We strive to foster tangible, long-term benefits for the public, for example, by incorporating creative approaches. Through these models, we look forward to making a small but meaningful impact on people and the planet one step at a time. Ultimately, our mission is to facilitate meaningful change for people from all walks of life and strengthen the public interest.

Vision:

Our vision is to create a more harmonious and healthy planet, facilitating human rights and respect for all people and the planet. We strive to achieve this, for example, by seeking out information about innovative trends. These initiatives could focus on economic development, environmental sustainability, safety standards, and quality of life. We track movements regarding advancing education and human rights.

Values:

At the core of our values are human rights. These rights are often reflected in economic growth and development projects and environmental consciousness initiatives. Liberties are important aspects of operational action plans, pathways to fair compensation, and other person-centered policies, practices, and solutions.

Strategic Plans:

We have incorporated into our plans the concept of inherent human dignity and the belief that every person deserves respect. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948, laid the foundation for the development of numerous human rights agreements and conventions. The UDHR serves as a guiding document that outlines the fundamental rights and freedoms to which all individuals are inherently entitled. These rights continue regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or any other status. These are keystones in the UDHR. It recognizes that human rights are universal, indivisible, and interrelated, emphasizing that all individuals are entitled to enjoy their rights without discrimination. We’re informed about the International Covenants on Civil and Political Rights as well as Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

The International Covenants on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) are two central international human rights treaties. They were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1966. These instruments have embodied the idea that all people have inherent rights that should not be dependent on their background or situation. This understanding has become a keystone of international human rights law. It reflects a global vision that every person has a fundamental worth and should be treated with dignity and respect.

The ICCPR focuses on civil and political rights, such as the rights to life, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, a fair trial, and to participate in public affairs. It sets out the obligations of states to respect, protect, and fulfill these rights for all individuals within their jurisdiction. The ICCPR also establishes structures and processes, such as the Human Rights Committee, to track state parties’ implementation of the Covenant.

The ICESCR, on the contrary, recognizes economic, social, and cultural rights. These rights include access to work, education, health, housing, and cultural services.

The ICESCR recognizes the importance of these rights for the well-being and dignity of individuals. It helps to establish the role of states in progressively realizing these rights to the maximum of their available resources. The ICESCR is checked by the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

Both the ICCPR and ICESCR are treaties. These oblige states parties to take measures to safeguard and facilitate the rights outlined in the respective covenants. States are required to give periodic reports to the applicable treaty bodies, about their progress in implementing the rights reflected in the covenants. The treaty bodies evaluate these reports, offer recommendations, and discuss items with states to support adherence to their obligations.

The UDHR, ICCPR, and the ICESCR, form essential aspects of international human rights law. They reflect the recognition that human rights are interconnected and indivisible, encompassing civil, political, economic, social, and cultural dimensions. These covenants aim to put theory into practice with the optimization of human rights for all people on this planet.

These instruments have played an essential role in influencing international human rights and facilitating the idea that human rights are universal and inalienable. They provide a conceptual and longitudinal framework that guides government and non-government sectors in their activities to safeguard human rights worldwide. Despite their limitations, the ideas outlined in these instruments remain. They are a foundation for debates that strive to build a society where the rights of each individual are respected, protected, and fulfilled.

We’re devoted to delivering long-term solutions, not quick fixes. Our approach offers mediation, counseling, whole-of-person support, and the arts.

Creative solutions are at the forefront of our approach— we understand that by using innovative entry points, they can create whole-of-person support.

We prioritize core values for the advancement of education, as well as for the promotion of human rights. We provide mediation, counseling, whole-of-person support, and the arts to best serve those in need. Human rights principles incorporating the following guide us.

  • Access to fair hearings
  • Assembly and association
  • Autonomy
  • Economic strategies
  • Family life
  • Freedoms of expression, thoughts, and consciousness
  • Humane treatment
  • Mobility
  • Privacy
  • Quality of life (International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights).

These rights and fundamental freedoms could be incorporated in:

  • Economic growth and development proposals
  • Environmental Consciousness strategies
  • Human Resource criteria and expertise
  • Operational action plans
  • Pathways to fair compensation
  • Person-centered solutions
  • Safety standards
  • Strategic Vision
  • Technical sustainability

In conclusion, we’re dedicated to offering meaningful support while upholding core values and human rights principles. We stand firm in our commitment to recognize fundamental human rights principles and provide fair compensation for everyone involved. This includes providing quality of life considerations involving people and the planet, and freedoms of thought and expression.

You may think your problems are sweeping you off your feet. It can be challenging to reach out for help. We suggest practical tips and tricks for optimized living. Support should be diverse to meet your individualized requirements. We set out to see you succeed, regardless of your needs and circumstances. Improved health reduces such challenges as heart complaints, diabetes, and stroke. Next, let’s explore our offerings.

Service Philosophy and Practices. Exploring different types of services: 

When you move towards resolving relationship conflicts and impasses, there are numerous ways you can receive help. Mediation, counselling, and support services are some of the most commonly used options. You may recognise that each of these types offer a variety of advantages and disadvantages. These should be carefully weighed before deciding which suits your life context best.

Support services are designed to help you in meeting your current needs and perspectives. This can aid you to feel calmer when faced with sudden life events like illness, disability, bereavement, and relationship challenges, among others. Support ranging from information, referrals, to coordination can be beneficial in serving you and your family and friends.

If you are going through tough periods in your life, support will ideally adapt to meet your changing whole-of-life situations. Generalised support services when you may fall out of the scope of specialized programs can be invaluable tools for managing difficult events in life. These services can provide opportunities for resolving conflicts while working together to come up with tailored solutions that meet your requirements. Also, they often give you the chance to express your grievances and feelings without fear of judgment or retribution.

The benefits of mediation, counselling, and support services don’t stop there— they can also help reduce litigation costs and time spent in court. This is especially true when dealing with relationship-related issues such as job allocation and time management at home and work. Furthermore, these services might provide education and support for all parties involved, sometimes regardless of the situation at hand. For instance, mediation sessions may help you understand each other’s perspective better to find an amicable solution that works for all of you. These services can provide guidance from a more objective standpoint while still considering the unique circumstances of each situation.

Mediation, counselling, and support services offer you numerous advantages in managing difficult times in life. These advantages range from suggestions as to how to resolve conflicts to reducing litigation costs and offering education and support to all involved parties. Read about your service options and build a preliminary understanding of the various benefits of these. You can be better informed to decide which one best suits your current needs.

Are you tired of feeling like you’re constantly pushing a boulder uphill, just like the legendary Sisyphus from ancient Greek mythology? We support you in breaking free from that endless cycle.

We offer services based on your particular needs and situations to support your quality of life. Please take a look at the sample helping approaches below.

Mediation:

Before, during and after sessions, you have enhanced opportunities for:

  • Becoming aware of policy-informed models.
  • Brainstorming definitional boundaries and alternatives.
  • Critical thinking.
  • Enacting individual and socially transformative potential.
  • Exploring decisions.
  • Focusing on needs and realities.
  • Identifying narratives.
  • Increasing compassion and strengths.
  • Moving beyond positions to interests.
  • Recognizing or summoning your courage to take risks while generating choices.
  • Reevaluating conflict analysis.

Counselling:

As you prepare, participate and reflect on sessions, you have circumstances for:

  • Co-rewriting life scripts and social roles.
  • Creating options.
  • Exploring biological, psychological and social needs and triggers. 
  • Identifying strategic and solutions-centred perspectives.
  • Reflective learning.
  • Revisiting personal and social conversations to separate the person from their questionable behaviours.

The Arts:

Your fantasies can have creative merit! Through the arts and aesthetics, perceptions and lived experiences that stem from the unconscious can be identified, acknowledged and addressed. Photography is an example of the digital and visual arts; artistic expression is part of being human.

Analytical psychologist Carl Gustav wrote in “Memories, Dreams and Reflections” (1961) about his time during 1918-1919 at the Chateau d’Oex in Switzerland. Here he drew daily in a notebook. An “aesthetic lady” told Jung that the “…fantasies arising from my unconscious had artistic value and could be with the help of these drawings I could observe my psychic transformations from day to day” (page 220).

Your emotions and cognitions vary; the arts could be another way to identify and release inner tensions and challenges. Sometimes you better manage an obstacle or a need if you are consciously aware of this. Overall, Jung created and enjoyed reflecting on others’ artworks. Drawings continue today; perhaps modern-day equivalents are the digital and visual arts. We can support you in actively drawing on these arts:

  • Adding to your therapeutic techniques and strategies.
  • Embracing your inner child.
  • Identifying functional and questionable personal and social patterns. 
  • Increasing conscious awareness of your inner physical, cognitive and psychological processes. 
  • Recognizing implicit symmetry and form, even your fantasies appear at first to be chaotic.

Applying the arts and aesthetics, meditation or counselling to lessen or prevent life problems may not suit you; one size does not fit all!

Support:

We customize guiding policies and practices to your contexts and adapt them to meet your needs and situations. After exploring your needs, we work with you to create an action plan to enhance your:

  • Personal and social development.
  • Rights.
  • Stamina.

Our not-for-profit organizations respect your inherent dignity and offer support such as: 

  • Counselling
  • Customized supports incorporating the arts
  • Mediation
  • Cognitive behavioural
  • Ecosystems
  • Positive-centred
  • Psychosocial 
  • Reality-based
  • Solution-oriented

Supports are multifactorial and assist you as you continue the unexplored journey of self and society.

Change can happen at multiple entry points throughout the human lifecycle. Analytical psychology has been criticized for lacking substantial and immediate change momentum (See, i.e. John Watson and B.F. Skinner). Post-Jungians continue to refine what is a significant force in interdisciplinary practice and theory.

You can benefit from structures and processes customized to your situation in interacting with others and the environment. We value returning visitors and are excited to greet you if you are new to our services.

Thank you for having taken the time out of your day to visit and read this message!

In summary, chosing the right type of service to fit your needs is a critical component in optimizing your capacity and potential. Think about what kind of help would be useful and what outcomes you aspire to accomplish. Once you’ve identified these criteria, then you can have an entry point to exploring service options to meet your requirements.

Caveats:

It’s important to remember that each option has its own benefits and drawbacks. It’s wise of you to have a foundational understanding of the similarities and the differences between these services. Then you can be better placed to choose which type of service best meets your situation, considering factors such as cost-effectiveness and timeliness. We do not provide medical or legal advice.
