The Vision or what do I want

I see myself sitting in a comfortable chair in a quiet space listening intently to some one for whom life is not going the way they want it to go. The person does the majority of the talking. I occasionally ask questions after reflecting back the person's statents to make sure that I have understood them correctly. After a series of interchanges, the person makes a commitment to some specific action. I observe the person relax. The person then expresses gratitude for our interactions and states that he/she is feeling more comfortable with their situation . The person offers a gift/payment out of gratitude for the support he/she has received. People want my services and I limit my availible time and select applicants who seem the most likely to succeed. I enjoy providing services to people and the "work" becomes part of my "balanced" life.
