Cliff Bostock, PhD, MA in Atlanta
Has it occurred to you that you may not need psychotherapy? Not every problem indicates a psychological disorder. After years of personal therapy and training in the field, I decided to work in the more direct way of a collaborative LIFE COACH. Together, we explore ways you feel blocked and create goals to get you on track. We explore your imagination, the source of all change, in a safe but challenging way. (Please consult my website for more details:
My work assumes you are motivated and have no serious mental health problems. How do you see yourself? What stories do you tell yourself? How might the meaning of those stories be differently viewed? Examples: do "coming out" and "midlife crisis" signify ends or wonderful beginnings?
Common Boundary Magazine said of my work: "Most participants experience changes beyond what one would expect from therapy." Besides meeting in person, I also do very unique work via the Internet with local and distance clients. IT'S EASIEST TO REACH ME BY EMAIL!

Cliff Bostock's Groups

Greeting the Muse

This 10-week workshop is an intense encounter with the creative imagination. It was originally designed for people in the creative arts, but proved to be quite useful for anyone feeling blocked in their life. It involves multiple processes and weekly homework which is returned to clients with comments. If you're feeling lost in life -- in "midlife crisis," for example -- this workshop will help you find new paths. (I also offer a weekend workshop, Muse 101, in this vein.)

You are what you taste

I have written a dining column for over 30 years, so I have a special interest in the way taste and psychology interact at both the personal and cultural levels. This multi-week workshop will include several restaurant meals together as well as group "process" sessions. It will be co-facilitated by a specialist in the psychology of the body. The group's main focus will be on pleasure, but we'll also see how taste affects the full range of feelings, how dining performs as a healing ritual, etc.

Gayging: Gay and growing older

Growing old is a difficult time for many gay men, but it is seldom discussed openly. This facilitated support group aims to change that. We'll be looking at the gifts of being gay and older as well as the problems. The group requires an 8-to-10-week commitment. A sliding-scale fee is available. (Weekend workshops also available.) The tone of the group will be supportive and playful. It's particularly good for men in "midlife crisis" or facing retirement, but open to all.
