I am a psychotherapist and counsellor, providing support through therapy to individuals and couples. Sessions which I offer are safe and confidential, creating basis for disentangling and exploring issues which are causing distress, disturbing happiness and sabotaging mutually rewarding relationships.
Many people who seek psychotherapy are affected by incidents in the past relationship. They admit that there are such incidents but they do not fully understand their influence in current lives. Psychotherapy and counselling benefit individuals and couples by helping them understand the source of adaptations and compromises made in early years of life which affect feelings and behaviors now.
Experience of working with people over the past twelve years has demonstrated that psychotherapy can be life-changing; people understand themselves better, acquire capacities to see themselves in various perspectives and use this newly acquired knowledge to reflect on and resolve interpersonal issues.
