What is the origin of the DREAMS Cycle ™?

The DREAMS Cycle ™ was created by Norman Marcotte in 1997 when he was studying for his Master's in Educational Counselling. The final project for his course Counselling Approaches was to develop his own approach which he coined the DREAM Cycle at the time. Over the past 20 years, the approach evolved into the DREAMS Cycle ™.
