Human beings are extraordinarily complex and can hold multiple identities that are equally important but not always simultaneously active. A coaching or counselling session or course is focused on your story, using a combination of conversation, tools (exercises) and a little bibliotherapy (recommendations of reading in the form of novels, poetry, articles). Dog walks optional (nature helps put things in perspective).
