The Forgiveness Solution Home


INTEGRATIVE COACHING is a process and method I use to coach people in transition, business and sales people, professionals, lawyers, doctors, financial planners and advisors, artists, accountants, managers, health professionals, therapists and people with marital, relationship, career, energy or spiritual problems. I provide Coaching by telephone, for individuals, as well as in person and sometimes also provide teleclasses for groups. Integrative coaching in turn calls upon a vast body of knowledge from the field of Positive Psychology (see below) and so I call myself an Integrative, Positive Psychology coach. It also draws upon the developing field of Integrative Psychology. As an Integrative Positive Psychology coach, I draw upon the 12 Universal Laws (see below) in order to help my clients as well as drawing upon my own strengths and virtues. (See Feedback on my strengths and virtues below)

CALL 610-828-4674 or 215-482-4700 NOW
for information, a consultation and an appointment or email
(Philadelphia, Philadelphia County and Plymouth Meeting, Montgomery County, Pa. offices). Coaching sessions are done by telephone or in person.

During these integrative coaching sessions I will listen deeply and carefully to your concerns, desires and dreams. I will help you develop creative, integrative approaches that support you in contacting your inner wisdom, resourcefulness and guidance, and help you make *integrative shifts* for powerful and practical benefits. I will use innovative and integrative tools, methods and healing techniques to help you gain control over yourself, your business, relationship, career, personal, energetic and spiritual life. This will help you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be in your life. I will help you clarify, define and reach your hopes, dreams and purpose in life.


Here is a quote from a coaching client:

“Just a short note to say thank you for all your help in these coaching sessions I enjoyed with you. ...Your understanding, humor, and help were an excellent example for me ... as were the techniques you used. I felt respected as a person, heard as an individual and coached as a child of the Divine. Thank you for all of that but more importantly, thank you for approaching these ... sessions in the Spirit of joy ...that made them an incredible gift to me.” (LB)

As your Integrative Positive Psychology coach I will help you understand and master these 12 universal laws so that you can more rapidly reach any of the 25 goals (see above) or others you have selected for yourself.


As your Integrative, Positive Psychology coach I will also help you master the 12 Fundamental choices for happiness (see free information section)


1. Positive Experiences such as well-being, happiness, life satisfaction, positive feelings, optimism, hope, flow, joy, creativity, courage, compassion, forgiveness, love, wisdom, self-actualization, sanity, emotional intelligence, spirituality, etc. My own work on well-being (see my book and assessment scales) would fit in here.

2. Positive Virtues and Strengths and the development of a classification system and scale for virtues in action (VIA’s). This parallels the excellent work on strengths in the workplace developed by the Gallup organization. (see below for my highest strengths and virtues using their measures)

3. Positive Organizations, Civic Culture and the Good Life


My most notable strengths or virtues in action (VIA), in alphabetical order, using the Positive Psychology system described by the VIA scale are:

1. Capacity to love and be loved You value close relations with others, in particular those in which sharing and caring are reciprocated. The people to whom you feel most close are the same people who feel most close to you.

2. Curiosity and interest in the world and love of learning You are curious about everything. You are always asking questions, and you find all subjects and topics fascinating. You like exploration and discovery. You love learning new things, whether in a class or on your own. You have always loved school, reading, and museums-anywhere and everywhere there is an opportunity to learn.

3. Equity, fairness and justice Treating all people fairly is one of your abiding principles. You do not let your personal feelings bias your decisions about other people. You give everyone a chance.

4. Forgiveness and mercy You forgive those who have done you wrong. You always give people a second chance. Your guiding principle is mercy and not revenge.

5. Gratitude You are aware of the good things that happen to you and you never take them for granted. Your friends and family members know that you are a grateful person because you always take time to express your thanks.

6. Hope, optimism and future mindedness You expect the best in the future, and you work to achieve it. You believe that the future is something that you can control.

7. Industry, diligence and perseverance You work hard to finish what you start. No matter the project, you "get it out the door" in timely fashion. You do not get distracted when you work, and you take satisfaction in completing tasks.

8. Judgment, critical thinking and open mindedness
Thinking things through and examining them from all sides are important aspects of who you are. You do not jump to conclusions, and you rely only on solid evidence to make your decisions. You are able to change your mind.

9. Leadership You excel at the tasks of leadership: encouraging a group to get things done and preserving harmony within the group by making everyone feel included. You do a good job organizing activities and seeing that they happen.

10. Perspective and wisdom Although you may not think of yourself as wise, your friends hold this view of you. They value your perspective on matters and turn to you for advice. You have a way of looking at the world that makes sense to others and to yourself.

11. Spirituality, sense of purpose and faith You have strong and coherent beliefs about the higher purpose and meaning of the universe. You know where you fit in the larger scheme. Your beliefs shape your actions and are a source of comfort to you.

12. Zest, enthusiasm and energy Regardless of what you do, you approach it with excitement and energy. You never do anything halfway or halfheartedly. For you, life is an adventure.

Also my major 5 Core Strengths from the Gallup Strengths scale are:

1. Maximizer People strong in the Maximizer theme focus on strengths as a way to stimulate personal and group excellence. They seek to transform something strong into something superb.

2. Learner People strong in the Learner theme have a great desire to learn and want to continuously improve. In particular, the process of learning, rather than the outcome, excites them.

3. Input People strong in the Input theme have a craving to know more. Often they like to collect and archive all kinds of information.

4. Connectedness People strong in the Connectedness theme have faith in the links between all things. They believe there are few coincidences and that almost every event has a reason.

5. Achiever People strong in the Achiever theme have a great deal of stamina and work hard. They take great satisfaction from being busy and productive.

I will help you discover your strengths and virtues and assist you in maximizing their potential.
