A Shift In Focus: From Diagnosis To Dream

I’m not concerned with the diagnosis.

I’m concerned with the individual standing in front of me.

Human to human.

Soul to soul.

A diagnosis can limit our idea of what we believe is possible.

We revert back to medical frameworks.

We try and put people in boxes, to help our mind simplify the complexities of the human experience.

Instead of asking ‘what’s your diagnosis’?

Let’s ask, ‘what is it you desire’?

Let’s invest our energy not in the confines of a label, but the possibilities of a dream.


I acknowledge that a diagnosis can hold significant meaning to a person. A diagnosis can be more than ‘just’ a diagnosis, it can be a culture. A community. A way of life. This must be honoured. And from our professional lens, we can validate the person and their diagnosis, and simultaneously open our mind to their unfulfilled dreams and possibilities that lie before them.
