About me and my therapy practice

Hey Guys! So, I could bore you and tell you all about my theoretical approach which I'm only to happy to share if you ask :-) I guess the main thing is that I can work with pretty much anyone and everyone with whatever issues you have. I can't promise you the world but I can promise to give you 100%. I honestly believe that I get results given the opportunity. I deeply care for my clients and this is much, much, much more than a business venture. 

Like I said above I can work with pretty much anyone and everyone. My strengths, however, lie in self-esteem, self-worth, confidence and working with negative thinking patterns, and depression plus a number of other underlying issues contributing to a dissatisfying life. All of which basically amount to, in my opinion, loving yourself more :-) 

I know life can be a struggle, hard work and at times pretty dull. It really doesn't have to be that way. You can change this, you have the power within to be the master of your own ship rather than the deck hand in rocky waters. Make the difference! And make the difference now! Your choice :-) It always was and always will be :-) 

I wish you all the very best on your life journey :-)

Practice description

For your comfort I work from my home. A non-clinical but sterile environment with really comfy chairs :-) Offering a comfortable, warm and welcoming space. A space where should you feel guided to do so you can completely be yourself without any judgement what so ever.  

My first session

The first session provides an opportunity for the two of us to get to know one another. It kind of sets the tone, it's called 'relationship building' in the field which I think is rather mechanical. I prefer to think of it more as a friendly meeting (non-business like) between two people, like an informal chat, that's it!!!

I understand that people can be really anxious to begin with especially meeting new people but there's really no need. I'm confident that when we get to know each other there will be no nerves. And that is my desire for you, to feel completely at ease and relaxed. 

There is no set structure, like an agenda. Its completely your choice where we go with this. Its your time and its your space.

Plus, I do not charge for the first session! 

So, win win!!! And do not feel pressured that you have to attend again! If we click (which I'm sure we will) then grand, I will look forward to working with you! If not I wholeheartedly wish you the very best on your life journey.
