The Method

The Virginia Satir method is based on the six phases of transformative change.

They are:  Making Contact, Validating, Facilitating Awareness, Promoting Acceptance, Eliciting Positive Choices and Constructive Change.

These are what make this type of coaching and mentoring so unique, powerful and effective.
