“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” (Eleanor Roosevelt)
Bridget is passionate about her work and believes that life is for living to the fullest, both personally and professionally and her clients deserve to have this underpinning any and all interventions based on their personal/professional goals. Life for Living Ltd. is the culmination of this.
During her work journey the best lessons have been provided by her clients and colleagues. It is for this reason that Bridget is motivated to continue to learn and thereby offer a myriad of approaches to benefit her clients personally and professionally – every individual is unique and therefore person-centred approaches need to be collaboratively tailored to meet the individual’s needs and their own personal and professional goals. Sharing knowledge is key and collaboration ensures success.
