Therapy With Bernd Leygraf

Conjoint Therapy with Bernd Leygraf

Radical better is an expression of the joint work between two therapists, Jaap Westerbos and Bernd Leygraf. Based on many years of experience, particularly in working with couples, groups and organisations, Jaap and Bernd have synthesized their approaches into one conjoint, coherent, challenging way of working. They draw on a wide range of therapies as well as art, ritual, body work and trauma resolution within a transpersonal philosophy. The work is particularly potent in working with systems that are chronically stuck and which require a creative radical approach to moving on.

The work involves an in-depth initial assessment with both therapists, normally in Central London and most sessions will be co-facilitated by both Jaap and Bernd. The work requires a time limited commitment. Conjoint work often works towards a resolution on a shorter time frame than traditional approaches to coaching or therapy.
