Make Thoughtful Change

“Make Thoughtful Change” is what The Ducklows are about. They listen deeply and thoroughly. They are in the practice of helping people and organizations make their way from where they are to where they want to be.

What We Do

Unloose People’s Thinking

Most people’s lives get stuck because their thinking gets stuck. We help people get unstuck by introducing them to ways of living that are faithful, psychologically thoughtful and practically resourceful.

Challenge People’s Change-ability

We enable people to live up to their preferred futures and not down to the limits of their own expectations or those of others. Practical, manageable, measurable, reasonable — these are the descriptors of making thoughtful change.

Who We Do It For

We work with faith communities, neighbourhood groups, universities and colleges, and family-oriented businesses that want to reach to a hoped-for future. Our clients include churches from many denominational backgrounds, professional service firms, schools and universities, health care providers, and government service agencies.

What Makes Us “Us”

Professional Quality

We are professionally trained with appropriate professional certification. Our skills have led to over 35 years of experience in counselling, coaching, consulting and conferencing.

Personal Focus

We don’t offer a pre-packaged program or canned answers to complexities and crises. Our personal approach is wrapped around strategies that are specific and timely.

Sincerity in Real Time

Our work is more than just a job. We are sincere and our work is clothed in respect, appreciation and genuineness.
