Albert Potash's bio

This content was provided by Albert Potash "Emotions and thoughts can be overwhelming. They can sometimes feel like a constant, distracting background noise. Clients sometimes compare their brains to "a hamster on a wheel". A noisy brain that is distracting , draining and all too often active at bedtime. These wearing thoughts and feelings can prevent us from ever fully coming to rest. We no longer have perspective, clarity or even pleasure. Instead life is reduced to making the best of our stress and unhappiness. My specialty is treating the root cause of these troublesome thoughts and feelings versus "managing" them. In my practice I offer clients practical tools to identify an emotionally "fragmented" state and then use the techniques to generate options and choices."

This experience was a sad one - can't recommend Al Potash as it was a one way business transaction in which he got paid for what seems like, clock counting for dollars. Found him online,the representations he makes on his website and his other sales and marketing pages are impressive - even meeting...more

It seems I let you down. I can usually tell when someone is unhappy or upset with me. I'm sorry I missed it. I am more than willing to talk with you . In fact, I am willing to see you for a free session so we can find a resolution or least allow you to feel seen and heard . I'm not OK with folks feeling sad and disappointed in relation to me. Sincerely Al
