How I Work: Psychotherapy
If you have found your way to this page, there is every possibility that you are looking for help in some way. Life challenges us in unexpected ways and sometimes we might need more support to find our way through. Experiences of loss, transitions or crisis can often leave us unable to understand our place in life. Finding expression for what can often feel difficult or stuck within us is a large part of the work of therapy.
You may be feeling a loss of meaning, or experiencing symptoms such as depression, anxiety, addiction or grief. Or you maybe be ready to continue with your own journey of self-awareness. Whatever the reason, entering a therapeutic relationship can support us with developing our own resources. I strongly believe that there is a knowing, wisdom and strength in each person, but it can often be hidden or forgotten. The work in therapy is to recover this and bring it back into our life.
Psychotherapy is a process of building one's own resources through reflection and dialogue which lead toward a deeper understanding of one's own being. Therapy can help us begin to find clarity about where we are in life, what we might have outgrown, but also what we need in order to find our way through change with confidence.
I believe that therapy can help strengthen our own inner knowledge and aid us in resourcing and trusting ourselves in our daily lives.
The process is supported by my training in Jungian, Gestalt, Humanistic and Art Psychotherapy. This means that we build an unique way of working together.
The therapeutic work consists of having a regular meeting time where we can ask some of the deeper questions that need to be asked, for us to keep growing and developing the courage and authenticity needed to live a full, and meaningful life.
I work with people who are experiencing the following difficulties:
Symptoms of depression, anxiety, addiction, and emotional upheaval.
Issues related to sexuality and gender identity and relationship difficulties.
Performance related stress and creative blocks.
