What’s the difference between self confidence and self esteem? What are you emotions telling you about uncomfortable situations? What’s the power that introverts have?
Hugh Barton’s path towards becoming a psychotherapist makes him uniquely qualified to help creatives because he was one. He started out in life as a talented musician but lacked the confidence to pursue this professionally. So he attended SVA in NY and studied graphic design. He worked as a professional typesetter for a few years before rediscovering his love for music, and worked as a composer for the next 20 years. The industry took a downward turn and it sent him into depression. While getting help from a therapist, he was inspired by wanting to help others. 8 years later, he is a licensed psychotherapist and believes in spiritual psychotherapy.
