“Helping clients to find meaning, purpose and a stronger sense of self in their world is an important part of my work as a therapist. I consider a privilege to be part of the process of self-discovery and reconstruction in others, assisting them to identify ways to become more creative with their lives and to move to more sophisticated patterns of thinking, feeling and being”.
