Biographical Counselling aims to help people in life crises build new strength to meet the challenges that life presents them with. It works with the past, present and future, understanding that the past and future reach far beyond one particular lifetime. In this way, the biographical counsellor helps create a space in which the richness of human life can be worked with so that new forces for growth and development can be liberated. Through this process a person will gain a wider perspective of their own story. From this new perspective they are then able to see the repetition of patterns, the transformative movements, as well as the forgotten talents, and crisis then becomes an opportunity for learning and growth.
