Helping Your Life Work
September 1, 2005
Volume 1, Issue 1


As I look forward to my 5th anniversary in private practice, I am doing what I often recommend to clients. I am taking stock of where I have been and making plans for where I am going.

Over the last few years, I have noticed a shift in the type of service that my clients have been seeking. While the mainstay of my practice has always been career counselling, I have noticed that personal counselling and coaching have taken on a greater significance. I am currently seeing more clients for longer-term personal issues than ever before.

In light of this new emphasis on personal counselling, I will be offering workshops related to personal issues starting this fall.

The first workshop is called “Getting Past Procrastination” and is aimed at helping those who have trouble getting things done. It will be offered on Friday, November 4th from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm at a nominal fee of $150.00 per person. To register, please call me at (416) 498-1352 or e-mail me at bfish@careeractive.com.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank family, friends, colleagues and most of all clients who have helped to bring me to this place. I look forward with great anticipation to the next five years.

Health and Wellness

As the volunteer coordinator of a Health and Wellness Speaker Series at my local community center, I am writing to invite you to attend our first Health and Wellness Fair on Sunday, September 11th from 10:00 a.m.-4:15 p.m. at Garnet A. Williams Community Center in Thornhill. The centre has been reserved for seminars, dance and movement classes, children’s programming and a marketplace providing free services and demonstrations. We hope to have something of interest for everyone.

The fair is free of charge and open to the public.

I hope you will be able to make it.
