Humanistic & Existential Counselling

Managing life’s complexities and achieving a sense of purpose and contentment

Humanistic and existential counselling are therapeutic approaches that pave the way to personal growth and self-awareness by focusing on your unique experiences. Clients can expect to achieve personal fulfillment while also improving relationships and improving the management of stress and anxiety.

Both humanistic and existential counselling offer valuable insights and tools for personal development, emotional resilience, and improved quality of life. I tend to use a combination of both methods with clients tailored to their own needs. I believe everyone is an individual and there is no one singular approach that suits all circumstances.”
