Change Happens Counselling & Consultancy

The underlying principle of how I work is strongly influenced by Existential philosophy. Existentialism breaks away from putting labels on a persons' life and works from the basis of being-present. I believe we are challenged to take personal responsibility for the choices we make in life. The past influences the present and the future poses hope, meaning and purpose. Existential philosophy approaches life holistically. In our work together 'expect change to happen'.
