Philosophy in relation to the creative methods
It holds unlimited potential when working with the diversity of clients, patients, children and students who are at very different stages of change and want to achieve a multitude of goals.
Applying different genres allows the practitioner to select techniques, which are best matched for the needs of each individual, couple, family or group.
Results in a dynamic combination, which provides powerful and effective outcomes for the clients.
Using creative methods such as scaling exercises, buttons, stones, artwork and cards enables a creative synthesis of integrating concepts and techniques that fit the individuality of a practitioner’s personality and style.
