Biographical Counselling is a spiritual psychology informed and inspired by Anthroposophy, a science of the spirit that was founded and developed by the Austrian philosopher, scientist and spiritual researcher Dr. Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). Rudolf Steiner has a unique position in history as he was such an accomplished man in many ways. In his time he founded several unique and holistically inspired approaches to medicine, the arts, education, agriculture and community life. Many of his insights were gained through his persistent inner practices of meditation, along with his own natural clairvoyant abilities. We are left with a vast array of his research - much of it ahead of its time – which forms the basis of this work.

We also draw on the following practitioners and thinkers who contribute to our approach:  Bernard Lievegoed, Karl Koenig, Viktor Frankl, Martin Buber, Carl Rogers, Carl Jung, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Signe Schaefer, George and Gisela O`Neil.
