What to do? 

Why seek help?

 

Do you want to feel less depressed, get relief from anxiety, create better relationships or find a more satisfying job? 

Are you overwhelmed with trying to feel better and don’t know what tools might help you to cope better?

Do you seek joy in your life, but don’t know how to achieve it? 

The good news is: you don’t have to know. 

 

We all try to do so many things alone. We try so very hard to be independent, self-sufficient and autonomous - not burden others. Maybe that’s why we are alone, or if not alone, feel alone. 

But there are ways to feel better and we can discover them together. 

 

I’m a social therapist. I work one-to-one and with couples and small groups. My focus is emotional growth and the alleviation of emotional pain. It doesn’t matter whether you have an eating disorder or stage fright, you’re a manic-depressive, obsessive-compulsive or an addict; it doesn’t matter whether, to your dismay, you find yourself married to a “stranger,” or are suffering the indignities of the “boss from hell.” I know how to help us collaboratively create a way for you to feel better and have better relationships with the important people in your life.

Couples, Families, Life Development Groups

 

With couples (and non-traditional partnerings), we work together to identify and support what the relationship needs. I help you get closer even as you are deciding to continue together or to separate or redefine what you are doing together. 

 

I work with families that have experienced traumatic loss of a loved one, families with middle school children in which the parents are fighting and families that want to heal old wounds between members. 

 

I also run short-term and ongoing Life Development Groups

 

My practice has moved exclusively online, so I can work with you wherever you are.

 

My clientele is multiracial, multi-class, multi-gender and international.

A client of social therapy for many years and a graduate of the Social Therapist Training Program of the New York State chartered East Side Institute, I have personally experienced the powerful impact of this approach with my emotional and social growth.

Aurélie Harp

Let's create a playful life together?

Become innovators and activists of the world.

 

I'm a certified international social therapeutic coach and theater practitioner. For the past 20 years, I’ve helped people respond to life challenges through creativity and I help them do it socially and globally. 

 

I approach human development, relationships and cultural transformation through play to help you create the environment you need to to grow with others and develop your life, your community and the world.

Concretely, I work with individuals and groups to engage us to create together our lives and relationships in the way a theater director builds ensembles. I am a stage director, writer, and performer. I am also a French immigrant who has become American and I bring this unique perspective into the mix.

Like any coach, I use questions to help people discover what they need and share their emotionality and I add creative tools like theater performance, improvisation, movement to activate our imagination and capacity to improvise new collective responses.

My clients come from very diverse backgrounds and from all over the world because I believe that we need to create more public spaces in our lives with people who are very different from us to explore, innovate and learn how to swim in the same river of life. 

I offer my services to both individuals and groups with a specific focus on creativity, international ensemble building and inclusion. 

I design my sessions to give you the flexibility you need — 

  • you can start with one-to-one coaching, 

  • “grow a la carte”  and join a monthly Creative & Emotional Playground I co-lead with my therapeutic and theatrical collaborator, Marian Rich

  • or directly dive in an ongoing Social therapeutic group with people from all around the world.

My sessions are currently all online, but stay tuned for more information on in-person groups and workshops.

Why should you join? Because you’ll learn new creative and relational skills to respond and move forward in an unpredictable world, you’ll also learn that you are not alone.

Together, we’ll create something more meaningful and impactful than what you could create on your own, because in group we learn how to build and connect in an intimate way which allows us to be more creative with our challenges, our pain and others. And that creates joy.

 

HELEN ABEL

 

Helen Abel is a life performance coach on staff of Life Performance Coaching (www.lifeperformancecoaching.com) who loves to help people create new ways of dealing with the challenges of everyday living, such as anxiety, relationships, feeling isolated, memory loss and growing older. Her 40+ years of experience as a therapist, social worker, and life performance coach grounds her work in helping people create environments where they can develop their capacity to create, perform and play.

 

Helen, with her colleague, Eileen Moncoeur, also on staff of LPC, has created and co-leads short term groups “Creating New Performances of Memory Loss, Dementia and Growing Older”.

 

These groups are open to everyone, persons living with dementia, care partners, people grappling with growing older, and everyone interested in transforming the experience of memory loss and aging from stigma and fear to joy and emotional growth.

 

The groups are improvisational in nature, starting with an improv game to help people play with and create new kinds of conversations. Often people speak about emotional pain, sadness, anxiety and worry. We find that people’s experiences of shame and isolation are being transformed into feelings of connection and new possibilities. And the groups help people break out of the tragedy narrative of dementia and growing older and support them in creating new performances in their lives.

 

Helen does short term individual coaching and co-leads an on-going life performance coaching group where people of diverse backgrounds and ethnicities come together every week to create new conversations that can help them create and perform new possibilities in their lives.
