About me and my therapy practice

I work as an integrative relational practitioner. This means that in my practice I draw from more than one approach to counselling believing that this gives me more flexibility in helping clients presenting a wide range of difficulties. I believe that the quality of the relationship between a client and the counsellor is the most important pointer to a good outcome. Therefore I pay great attention to establishing and maintaining a safe and trusting working alliance with the client. I am grateful for feedback from the client about whether he/she is happy or unhappy about my way of working.

I listen carefully to what a client says wanting to understand his/her take on a situation and his/her experience. I reflect back to the client my understanding of their thoughts and feelings. I make connections between their experiences in the present and the past from time to time if I think this could be helpful. We may look at the client’s thought patterns if they seem to be unhelpful to their functioning. Together we will explore strategies that may help them cope with particularly challenging situations or feelings.

All this I hope to do in a respectful, empathic and caring way.
