John Lee

The Detour Method
A New Way of Being in Relationship with your Partner, Children, Parents, Friends, Employees and Employers
.

The reasons to take the Detour Method are when you feel: overly stressed, overly tired, overly sad, afraid you can't manage your anger, scared, anxious, abandoned, jealous, not seen, and not heard.

When you learn to use the Detour Method you can: Stop saying words you will regret later. Stop making hasty, painful and costly relationship decisions. Stop prematurely ending relationships. Start minimizing the stress and tension in your body

The Detour Method is so valuable because the skills transfer from home to work and vice versa.

John has recently been on 20/20 and Barbara Walters. He is the best selling author of The Flying Boy, Facing the Fire: Experiencing and Expressing Anger Appropriately, & the soon to be published (January 2001), How to Grow Yourself Back Up: Understanding Emotional Regression.

John Lee will surprise and delight you. His wisdom and humor go straight to the heart of his listeners.
