Everyone needs an approach that is tailored to them

Everyone needs an approach that is tailored to them.

In an introductory session, we get to know each other, find out what you are going through and what you would like to change or improve.​

 

In following sessions, we work together to achieve a deeper understanding of how your family works:    

 

       How do you relate to each other?

       How does the family think?

       How does everyone express their feelings?

This will open up a path to change and allow us to collaborate towards your goals.
