Emotional needs audit

The Emotional Needs Audit is a scoring system where we work together to see which of your emotional needs are not being met in balance. Please go to the About section for all the information you need to know on what our emotional needs are. The score goes from 1, being emotional need not being met at all to 10, which means your emotional need is being met very well. Any score below 3 will wave a flag that work needs to be done in a certain area.  It is a simple exercise and great for targeting particular areas in your life you can focus on to improve.

If you affected by the issues described on this page please contact me for a free consultation
