About me and my therapy practice

Have you been overthinking, worrying, feeling sad, hopeless, avoiding friends and families, isolated and feeling a sense of not belonging, confusion, avoiding any kind of social interaction or desperately needing reconnect again?  That may feel unbearable to go on living like this?! I can help you with that - Through counselling , clients can recover motivation, perspective, hope, strengthen problem solve skills, build resilience and learn how tolerate anxiety; they also can overcome unwanted memories and sadness not only but also experience joy again.

Practice description

My focus is to help individuals heal, energise, and become aware of their inner strengths; I provide a safe non-judgemental space, where clients are made to feel valued, understood, listened to and free to express and explore any concern.

I build the therapeutic relationship I have with my clients using a range of creative technics such as: games, role play, drawing, crafts, mindfulness, blobs pictures, solution focus exercises, etc in order to promote feeling of safety, increase awareness and because I know for some clients just the idea of coming to therapy may be daunting.
