About the Author

Hilda Burke is an integrated psychotherapist, couples counsellor and life coach. She also holds the position of guest lecturer at the London College of Fashion, University of the Arts, London and is a volunteer counsellor at Wormwood Scrubs prison. Hilda trained as a transpersonal psychotherapist at CCPE, London and holds a post-graduate certificate in dream work and couples counselling from the same institution. Hilda practices from her consulting room in West London, occasionally accompanied by the resident cat, or her dog, Madra. Before qualifying as a psychotherapist, Hilda worked in PR, promoting many technology and telecoms companies. She also trained as an actor. Hilda's aim in working with clients is to help clear the obstacles to enable them to be able to listen to themselves, to be true to themselves and to become fully authentic. She believes the ultimate goal of therapy is to facilitate clients to become their own therapist. Hilda is regularly called upon to comment on issues relating to well-being, relationships and the challenges of modern life in the media and has been quoted in The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Sunday Times, The Financial Times, Forbes, The Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, Psychologies, Women's Health and interviewed on the BBC, ITV and London Live.
