    Hi, I'm Wesdyne.  Currently, I'm bald with shocking white hair (top ).  Sometimes my hair grows and other times, like now, I wear hair hats (wigs), scarves, toques, okay mainly toques.  

    I could not find a therapist who had insider/real experience of living with a chronic illness and disability, so I became one and started Positive-Shift.

Find out more about me and the Positive Shift story here.

Loads of free stuff because accessibility is affordable. 

 My name is pronounced Wes-Dean (2 cowboy names)

Wesdyne can be found on Facebook or LinkedIn

If you've said.

I want an alternative to talk therapy, worksheets, and checklists that tell me how to manage my illness.  

I want to enjoy my life.

I want solutions specific to my life and situation rather than this one size fits all stuff? 

There's got to be more to life than illness management. 
I miss my life, being happy, feeling like I could do anything, be anyone's best friend, go places, and achieve anything.  I want my life back!  

Then Positive-Shift Can Help You!
