About me and my therapy practice

I am away from 4/05/2019 to 26/05/2019

Online/Telephone Counselling  and hospital visits.

Anxiety, chronic stress, mood swings, depression, insomnia, emotional instability, low self-esteem, unsuccessful relationships, going through a divorce. Any of these matters can leave us feeling so alone and abandoned that we can't even imagine that we can feel differently. Let's change that! I offer psychotherapeutic counselling online via Skype. In an accepting and non-judgemental atmosphere we will talk about what troubles you.

I work in collaborative way from the platform of psychodynamic theory with emphasis on existential issues, such as social inclusion, life and death, meaning in life and freedom to express yourself.

I respect the uniqueness of every person and therefore there will be no standard approach to our sessions. My aim is to hear you out and to create an atmosphere where you can trust me enough to tell your story. I appreciate how hard it might be to start talking and that you might at times feel stuck. To aid you on this difficult journey I will offer you my undivided attention, I will be with you every step of the way. Therapy might become the means that will bring about positive change in your life. To achieve that, I encourage you to be as open as possible. This will help us to uncover your inner resources and to unlock your hidden potential.

In the past I have specialized in working with parents who had children with various disabilities. I found that, although helped in many other ways by social services, the parents are often left to face their inner problems alone. I believe that seeking professional help might prove useful in gaining more confidence, alleviating anxiety and developing a new positive outlook on life.
