What's your story?

Jung discovered that these archetypes have continued cross-cultural potency because they reflect our own ‘collective unconsciousness’, drives, needs, fears and desires - that are hardwired into each of us. And this forms the basis of storytelling...

Having worked with Sabrina to find my voice through my Archetype I can vouch for the fact that it contributes beautifully to creating an authentic brand, whether you’re an extrovert, or an introvert like me. I strongly recommend!!
