Not to be confused with Positive Psychology, my goals in therapy are to help clients achieve Life-Balance. According to PPT, life can be viewed in four domains including: (1) body/health, (2) work/achievement, (3) relationships/traditions, and (4) meaning/fantasy/spirituality. The demands of globalization and an evolving, cross-cultural world make it more and more difficult for people to find and maintain their Life-Balance.
