Henry believes that every individual is a gem. He adopts a “process experiential” approach, helping individuals access the treasure trove of qualities and abilities within them. This is so that they can manage their struggles, and live the life they rightfully deserve. Henry believes that psychotherapy is not just about learning coping skills to overcome the struggles in life. He strives to provide a curative space and working partnership to empower individuals to be who they are meant to be.
