"Laughter is the most inexpensive and most effective wonder drug.--Bertrand Russell


A good laugh changes everything!

How does Laughter work in counseling and coaching?
I am often asked how laughter works within the sometimes serious and emotionally sensitive world of counseling. My answer is - easily and very well when we are able to laugh at the problem in the moment, or later as you get a different, clearer perspective of what used to be an insurmountable problem, we end up laughing at it together. 

 So much of therapy is letting go of old beliefs and being willing to embrace new ones. In working with people over the last thirty years, I’ve noticed that laughter occurs naturally both as a release and as a signal that a release has occurred.
