I didn’t expect naming my business to be such a challenging process. I was looking for a name that reflected how I work and also to have a connection to me personally; I wanted a name that sounded both soft and strong. I became highly focused on words, any word, even words on road signs! I felt like I was going stir crazy! Then in my Yoga class the focus was on ‘sparkling up’. I loved the word sparkle but it didn’t feel quite right, so I put sparkle in thesaurus and spotted glister. That’s how Glister evolved. Glister Counselling was conceived in my yoga class. Glister means to me, reflection, light and to shine. One of the analogies I use to explain how I work is that I metaphorically hold-up a mirror and what is reflected back helps my clients to find their own way through whatever they are struggling with. I feel such pleasure seeing the light return back into their eyes. The name Glister felt perfect; it ticked all the boxes.
The fact that Glister Counselling has a connection with yoga is symbolic because my vision is to be able to bring some of the benefits of mindfulness and relaxation into the corporate world. No matter what your age, ethnic origin, background or career path, it is tremendously beneficial to be able to press the pause button with awareness. There are techniques that can greatly help with anger management, assertive communication, self-esteem issues, anxiety and depression. Please click HERE for more information on mindfulness.
