Make Thoughtful Change

“Make Thoughtful Change” is what The Ducklows are about. We listen deeply and thoroughly. We 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 most anyone who wants to reach to a hoped-for future. Our clients include folk from all sorts of culture and religious backgrounds, professional service firms, schools and universities, health care providers, and government service agencies. We will not exclude on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, culture, age, faith or whatever. At the same time, we cannot do everything — but sometimes we try!

What Makes Us “Us”

Professional Quality

We are professionally trained with appropriate professional certification. Our skills have led to over 40 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.
