Since childhood I have been interested in the inner world of a person and had ability to be present and listen attentively to other. It was only after a deep crisis later in my life and some existential reflection that I began to realise that I wanted to make this natural inclination as my professional path. Combining empathy and compassion with therapeutic skills and knowledge, I now help people in their difficulties, life challenges as well as in the search for well-being and balance.
I believe that in a safe and supportive environment, in a trusting relationship, a person can open up in his vulnerability and reveal himself to other and most importantly to himself! Reconnecting with oneself, having a more integrated sense of self and acceptance are the landmarks that help people to make more conscious choices, to have a more balanced life, as well as to experience more genuine relationships.
I offer Individual therapy – I work with adults (from the age of 18)
Topics I work with:
Difficulties in relationships, dysfunctional relationships (with partner, children, relatives, etc.)
Support in crisis situations (loss of a loved one, divorce, serious illness, change of residence, loss, grief, crisis of age and maturity, etc.)
Anxiety, panic attacks, depression, fear, stress
Perfectionism (self-criticism, shame, guilt)
Difficulties in self-realisation
