Services (A.K.A. Help!)

We have a few options for working together, particularly given that location and COVID restrictions remain an issue. I believe one of the most inspiring places to reframe your challenges is to visit my farm west of Peterborough where we can explore what’s blocking your progress while we wander the rolling hills and wetlands, but you’ll have to dress accordingly!

If coming to the country (1.5 hours NE of Toronto – to enjoy nature,  meet my two ex-police horses and two orange cats) doesn’t fit your busy schedule, I can come to you, virtually or in person. I meet with my clients face to face in your office or mine. We can also get together via video link or just over the phone. Don’t let distance hinder your ability to get the help you need!

Here is a taste of the work we can do together. As you read the following table, identify what fits your needs. If something else is bothering you, let’s discuss; please contact Cynthia to explore options together.
