I believe we, as a part of a whole integrated and interconnected system, are more than just our symptoms and concerns, but when we are struggling with our painful feelings, we could feel ourselves confused and unable to move in life.
In life a journey has many ups, downs and unforeseen events and it is sometimes helpful to handle these with support.
Whether this is anxiety, relationship difficulties, workplace stress; whether you are dealing with stressful life events such as divorce and separation, illness or loss of a loved one, work-related stress, career development, motivation, low self-esteem, depression, body image issues, addictions, psychosexual difficulties or parent-child conflict, I am focused in supporting you with achieving greater clarity on the issues you bring and be aware of your choices.
COUNSELLING AND THERAPY
I strongly believe that the main purpose of both a psychotherapy and a counselling process is to help people gain self-awareness.
That is often the key to make you feel more self-confident, fully in charge of your own life.
Self-awareness can help you to effectively achieve your goals and cope with difficulties, changes, crisis that you can find on your way. It can make you feel free. Free to be yourself, to be unique.
During my professional experience, I have learnt that everybody possesses the capacity to develop and improve their skills and activate hidden resources from inside in order to become a more satisfied person, a better professional and achieve personal and shared success. I have always studied and worked strongly believing in this.
When thinking of therapy, it is perfectly normal to be unaware of the length and depth of therapy that is correct for you or what may be suitable.
I suggest that you get in touch and we can arrange an initial meeting. This will be an opportunity to meet and discuss your concerns.
There is no commitment to continue at this stage. If, after our first meeting, we decide to proceed, we would arrange a time that is convenient for both.
