Resilience is the capacity to withstand stress and adversity. Psychologists have long recognized the capabilities of humans to adapt and overcome problems. Resilience develops as people grow up and gain better thinking and self-management skills and more knowledge. Resilience is found in a variety of behaviours,
thoughts, and actions that can be learned and developed across the life span. Through coaching or counselling you have the opportunity to further develop your resilience and strengths.

Figure out what you want and need, and learn the ways to get there. Change small automatic thoughts and behaviours, challenge preconcieved notions and build upon your strengths with the guidance of Liane Thakur.
When working with a client using CBT, one of the things we try to do is understand the person’s core belief(s). Core beliefs are the very essence of how we see ourselves, the world and the future. These tend to develop over time through our experiences. They are strongly held, rigid and inflexible. We tend to maintain them by focusing on information that supports the belief and filtering out that which doesn’t.
In CBT, we try to figure out what the core belief is, what is maintaining it and feeding it, and then work to change the self-belief. One of the ways we do this is to come up with a new core belief that the client would like to have. Because our views of the world and others tend to be so skewed toward the negative, we have to start having finding positive evidence about this belief. It’s not easy, but it’s doable.
We will work on finding your strengths and minimizing your weaknesses (or make them work for you). This is turn will make you more confident, creative in your thinking and more satisfied with life.

I really enjoyed our discussion on understanding the anxiety/productivity curve as an employee performance tool. Have put it into practice and noticed drastic results in just two weeks! You have been an incredible resource in understanding organisational behaviour!

The weekly family therapy sessions that Liane Thakur provided to my son and me, following an acrimonious divorce from my husband, were crucial in enabling my teenager to get through a period of acute emotional crisis. Subsequent one-on-one sessions with Liane helped me to improve my parenting skills, to provide more effective support to my son and to develop my own coping mechanisms. Her method is extremely practical, down-to-earth and empowering. Liane provides simple tools to enable people to get through periods of stress, anxiety and trauma, and to build greater emotional resilience. I highly recommend her sessions, whether one-on-one or as a family group -- especially for teenagers, young adults and parents who are struggling through a difficult transition.
