Barbara’s Approach to the Practice of Therapy with Individuals, Couples and Groups is Existential-Phenomenological
Phenomenological refers to a methodology of investigation that temporarily suspends judgement and preference with the intention to “see” what is there in front of our eyes (and the rest of our senses too!).
Existential direct us towards philosophy, which is the love for wisdom (or, as some have argued: the wisdom about love). Existential Therapy is not for the faint-hearted as it requires patience and courage.
This approach encourages us to respond to life’s challenges in our own creative way, rather than by applying already-made formulas and scripts handed down by others, to embrace the wider range of experiences without losing balance

"I see therapy as the process of learning how to derive the maximum benefit from everyday living, especially in difficult circumstances. This does not mean to deny the reality of our struggles but instead to learn how to embrace life fully and deal with the obstacles in a responsible and creative way."
