Good to know

We mostly subscribe to a pastoral narrative approach in which respect for your life experiences are of the utmost importance. We see ourselves as partners on the journey and not as someone who will prescribe and diagnose. Your life, your story. Let’s co-create a hopeful future and collaborate on a meaningful life.
