Barbara Wibbelmann

“Since qualifying as a counsellor, Barbara has worked short-term with homeless clients and long-term with clients with mental health problems.

She mainly works according to the person-centred model which means that she aims to relate to her clients rather than diagnosing them or interpreting their experiences. It is her belief that every person has within themselves a deep reservoir of resources to deal effectively with life’s challenges and can find their own inner truth when it comes to decision-making and dialoguing with others.”
