What is depth psychology coaching & CONSULTING?

Depth Psychology Coaching focuses on the developmental journey of ourselves in our personal and professional lives so we can better understand who we are in the roles we play. In a professional context it means understanding professional edges, inner and outer agendas, projections and reactions to conflict and uncertainty, organizational culture and group behaviour, power, gender and race, and motivational approaches to building a collective vision and charting a path forward.
