Dr Ethel Kojman
You will be familiar with the contradictions of life - joy and excitement interlaced with uncertainties and challenges. At times this feels frightening, depressing and confusing. That may be the time to use as a springboard to personal growth, to better understand yourself.
And now you are here. You have made an important and likely not easy decision to gain insight into what may be making you anxious and overwhelmed. You may be feeling the need to articulate, understand and convey what is going on for you.
I believe this is best done with someone by your side, not in isolation. Talking and expressing your experiences can be very hard and painful. You need a safe and confidential space to do that, to explore your concerns. This is what therapy is about, and this is what I offer you.
I will work with you. We will work together at your own pace, to build a solid therapeutic relationship in order to explore your difficulties and make it possible for you to develop a fresh outlook and gain new perspectives.
I believe in the wholeness of mind, body and soul and will look at your emotions, thoughts and physical responses. We will work through the here and now, which means looking at your experiences in the present and how they may be affected by past events and relationships, in order to enable you to move forward with greater insight and learning.
I offer person centred approach and I creatively combining Gestalt therapy, Cognitive Behavioural and Hypnotherapy. I will invite you to listen to your body, the container of your feelings, and to employ what feels comfortable to you, such as using art, writing etc. to enhance your experience.
"You are one of the easiest people to talk to I've ever met, and you have the empathy to get to the heart of issues and problems quickly." (Kev, a client)
