*orothy Dix's profile:

I don't have any degrees other than to say that I love to help people to make the best of themselves and make their lives the best they can be. I really enjoy helping people to find answers to their problems.

I draw this information from my own personal life experience and the lessons I have learned throughout my life.

I also believe that every problem has a solution. No matter how challenging it might seem to find that solution, it's simply a case of having faith in yourself and never giving up.

I live in Sydney, Australia. I am married with no children.

I am very much a people person and like to make a difference in whatever way I can.

I'm pretty ordinary in my life as far as interests go. I like to read, knit, draw and paint whenever I get a chance. The books I read are mainly motivational books, which have helped me over the years in my own life's journey.

I am also presently studying Life Coaching (by correspondence), which I really enjoy. Although I am still studying, most of what I study I am already putting into action in my daily life. The course itself is really only the official side of becoming a Life Coach. For the most part of it, my gifts of good communication and being able to understand why things in life happen the way they do, has been gained through firsthand experience by me.

What can I do to create the spark we used to have? What needs to change?

Q.   We've been together for 5 years and we lose that spark we had before. We almost argue and fight all the time and we broke up 3 months before and now getting back together again. But things have changed and so do our feelings. He said he doesn't ...

A.   31 October 2014: Hi there. It sounds like marriage shouldn't be on your agenda, while things are the way they are. After 5 years of being together, you were both probably late teenage when you met, I am guessing. Two people can change and mature a lot in ... (read in full...)

Why is he being so dodgy about this friend?

Q.   Hi all I need some advice. I recently found out A is coming back from US and visiting my bf whilst I am overseas. I have never met A and I know my bf met her through camp. A is currently studying in US. My bf initially kept it from me but somehow it ...

A.   31 October 2014: Hi there. It sounds like he has feelings for her, otherwise why would he be trying to hide it and avoid talking about it with you? It does raise my suspicions, that there is more to it than meets the eye. And if you were to ask him straight... (read in full...)

A.   2 October 2014: Hi there. It's not wise to start thinking too far ahead of right NOW. Just enjoy each moment. I am guessing the only reason you broke up in the first occasion, was because you had planned to travel. And that is fair, as many things can... (read in full...)

The guy I like has an obvious type, and I'm not it. Should I ask him out anyway?

Q.   I fancy someone I know, but his taste in girls is so different to me I'm wondering if it's worth going for it or if I should leave it. He's not my usual "type" (I usually date guys who are quite similiar to me, but he's the stereotypical very ...

A.   1 October 2014: Hi there. There really is no point whatsoever in comparing yourself to others. If you are happy with who you are and don't really want to change anything about yourself, then why do it - just to try and fit in with what you think someone'... (read in full...)

Clean now and sober for 23 months. How can I show these people that I've changed?

Q.   When I was in my early 20's I began a bad habit that got me hooked on drugs (pills) and alcohol. I was able to hide it from almost everyone I knew. I met an amazing girl “T”, who had no idea what she was getting into and I thought I could ju...

A.   30 September 2014: Hi there. It all comes down to trust. You have to prove to everyone - genuinely - that you CAN be trusted. And you can only be considered trustworthy, if you are always clean - and NOT just when you are seeing your girlfriend. Y... (read in full...)

My Bf of 3 years still sees the friends he mixed with back when he did take illicit drugs. Is it wrong to expect him to cut ties with them?

Q.   Here's the situation: I'm very anti-drug and when I met my bf of 3 years, he told me that he was a recovering addict, clean for the last 7 years and that he was over it. So I was fine with it. The problem is that he still hangs out with frien...

A.   30 September 2014: Hi there. The fact that he still sees these people on a regular basis, is a big concern. It is putting him in that way of thinking yet again, and so it could become a temptation for him, if something goes wrong in his own life. And that's th... (read in full...)

A.   29 September 2014: Hi there. I guess that after a year and a half, you are now getting into the next stage of the relationship, where you are into a kind of pattern now. You still like/love each other, but the initial newness stage is wearing off. It sounds lik... (read in full...)

A.   28 September 2014: Hi there. I guess the thrill you are feeling now, is the forbidden fruit situation. Doing something, that you know is morally wrong. And it feels exciting to you, because of this. Or perhaps, the mystery of it you might also find attracti... (read in full...)

A.   30 March 2014: Hi there. He has battled with depression in the past, and how he handles things going wrong, is to drink, as this helps to numb his feelings and helps him to escape things for a little while. And being that he comes from a family where alcoholi... (read in full...)

A.   29 March 2014: Hi there. Perhaps it is time for you to both sit down together and have a talk about it. Not at the time you are about to try and make love, though. At another time completely, when you are both relaxed and won't be disturbed by anyone else. ... (read in full...)

A.   29 March 2014: Hi there. It sounds like he is very angry and rather fed up. A smile over tight lips, is a grimace. Frustration, and not really happy. It's happened more than once, before now. Is this an "on again off again" type of relationship? ... (read in full...)

A.   17 March 2014: Hi there. It certainly is a very challenging situation to be in, with someone in the family who is chronically ill, that's for sure. From what you say, it sounds like it is just you and your mother - no brothers and sisters? And is your f... (read in full...)

A.   9 February 2014: Hi there. As you say your father can't really help you with this expense for education, you really have no other choice than to take out the student loan. And especially, as you are about to begin studies next week. Usually with student loa... (read in full...)
