About me and my therapy practice

I am an Existential psychotherapist with a phenomenological, embodied, emotional and relational way of working.

I offer open presence and create a safe space so you can feel free to explore all aspects of yourself and especially the parts of yourself and your life that feel challenging, whether that is emotional, spiritual, mental, physical, social. We start and move at the pace that feels comfortable for you. Together we can come to a greater clarity about your life journey and significant relationships. We all have an inner knowing, re-connecting to it and integrating all aspects of ourselves is what brings us into alignment and fulfilment from where we can start to flow through life with inspiration, openness and presence.

I trained in Existential Phenomenological psychotherapy and counselling, furthermore my particular passion and way of working is embodied, emotional and relational. It is our embodiment that allows us to deeply discover ourselves and truly meet another in a meaningful relationship. When we come in touch and awareness of our emotions, intuitions, dreams we tap into a well of inner resources we have been been gifted with in order to live a life that is meaningful and exciting to us.

In the sessions we will tap into, listen and follow your inner knowing, through embodiment, breath, dreams, mindfulness, imagination, and thus empower you to help yourself and come into a more harmonious way of being.
