and situational precipitating factors that would bring on the current distress.
This approach is useful in understanding the dynamics and context of the
client’s current difficulties.
In a collaborative process, Henry
would help you to explore the most appropriate options and strategies to reduce
your stress. As you know, chronic tension and emotional distress can drain your
energy and often leads to inertia, loneliness and low mood that affects concentration

Henry uses is based on his years of experience that will help you to identify
and implement the most effective strategies to reduce the stress that first
prompted you to call for counselling.
Also, this approach leans on
the fact that both money and time are limited for us all and therefore it is
based on the premise of “short-term” counselling to effect positive change
without the need for extended ongoing therapy.
It is Henry’s responsibility
and focus to collaborate with you on the most expeditious means to bring about
your desired goals while simultaneously helping to foster a healthier and more
fulfilling life with greater purpose and meaning and resilience.

behaviour change is based on this attitude.

difficult process and Henry’s calm, sensitive and empathic understanding in a
safe milieu will help to usher in the desired outcome you would expect.
