    10 Questions with Arna Stewart

    • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

    • I have always been a curious observer of others so psychology made sense because it is a study of human experience and behaviour. Becoming a psychologist and counsellor has been a natural and enjoyable progression for me.
    • Which philosophical approaches have influenced your professional/personal development?

    • I like the psychodynamic approaches because they consider how early attachments and life events shape our view of the world and how we respond to challenges and to each other.
