Being a Psychotherapist and Counsellor I see my task as guiding clients on a journey towards greater freedom of choice, autonomy and fuller, more meaningful lives.
Working on the client's issues and present problems, many rooted in childhood will free up suppressed emotions from the past. This process can be painful as well as liberating. At the same time, I focus on the client's strengths, what gives them joy and what feeds their souls.
My ultimate goal is to help you towards the realisation of your potential and expression.
How am I able to help?
Since we are all individuals I found that using a single therapeutic method does not work with everybody. That motivated me to study several therapeutic approaches like the Transpersonal, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Cognitive Behavioural.
I believe in the body-mind-feeling connection.
I am using creative techniques to bypass the censor of the rational mind and access a deeper level of consciousness.
However, research has shown that the most important criteria for a successful outcome are the Therapeutic Relationship based on confidentiality, empathy, and acceptance.
I do not have a magic wand but my aim is helping the client to find their own answers through accessing their innate wisdom and healing power.
