A New Psychology

In a world which is increasingly disconnected and soul-less, Anthroposophic psychology approaches counseling psychology... 

as if body, soul and spirit matter

The soul, or pysche, has the unique task of mediating between body and spirit. As counselors, we aim to guide these delicate processes toward optimal health and awakening. Read more...
