Bob works from an Existential-Humanistic perspective. This approach involves the exploration of how you can live your life more consciously. This allows for an unfolding process of discovering yourself. It assumes you are responsible for how you exist in the world and how you respond to the conditions and challenges presented to you.

In the exploration of your inner life, you find your unique identity. By listening to yourself in the moment, you discover who you are and find your place in the world. You are able to live with integrity and authenticity.

The results of this approach are a greater awareness of the wide range of choices we have, the ability to make effective decisions, an increased sense of personal power, and the discovery of deeper meaning in your life.
