I believe that every individual has the capacity to live a nourishing life and deserves to feel fulfilled. However because of past or present experiences, as well as learnt behaviours, we sometimes find ourselves stuck with unwanted feelings, and with the burning desire of wanting things to be different, but not knowing how to change them.
I am committed to helping my clients reach a place of contentment and well-being, by becoming the best versions of themselves that they can be. I respect and celebrate the uniqueness of each one of my clients in their way of being and seeing the world. I believe that no matter what struggle, ‘stuckness’ and pain individuals might be experiencing, change is possible and new ways of being, behaving and feeling can be created. Therapy is a powerful tool to achieve this because it helps remove the obstacles that hinder self-realisation, and it allows the creation of a more authentic sense of self. It is beautiful to witness how, through the work together, clients become more curious about themselves and develop a deeper sense of self-awareness, which in turn leads to self-acceptance and ultimately change.
My approach to therapy is holistic, which means that I invite my clients to explore their emotions and thoughts, as well as their bodily sensations. My work is exploratory, experiential, existential and psychoeducational.
As a Humanistic Integrative therapist, I draw from a variety of approaches and techniques (with Gestalt and the Psychodynamic approach being my preferred ones), and from my personal experience. Creativity is a key ingredient of my work because I believe that we all have an intrinsic creative genius, and therapy can allow the artistic juices to flow. When appropriate, I therefore integrate art, drawings, body-work, dreams exploration and other creative techniques in the therapeutic work.
I offer short term (8 to 10 sessions) and long term therapy with ongoing reviews to monitor progress and discuss potential new areas of work.
Sessions are face-to-face, however, Skype sessions are also available during periods of travel.
