individual counselling

A journey to self-discovery, healing and fulfilment

Anxiety? Stress? Trauma? Depression? Unhappy relationships? Low self-esteem?

Procrastination? Parenting issues? Post divorce?

 

We live in a fast paced and complex world, full of challenges (routines, commitments, worries, expectations, should's, conflicts) where change is constant and inevitable. As so many forces are working upon us it is extremly difficult to cope under so much pressure. It is not surprising we feel unbalanced, not ourselves, overwhelmed, stuck or simply don't know how to get back on track.
This is a very confusing, frustrating and lonely experience.

To seek therapy is a brave and rewarding step towards finding deeper insight and  clarity. I will help you get to the root of the problem so the healing-process can begin with the goal to regain control and improve one's emotional health and wellbeing.

couples therapy

Finding happiness together.

Vicious cycle? Silence? Conflict? Burn out? Living together but apart? Infidelity?

 

Humans are wired to need emotional connection! And we know that when couples are securely connected to each other, they can cope with whatever gets thrown their way easier and are more resilient and healthy overall. When our connection is at the threat off its loss, we react quickly and deeply and it can easily tear partnerships apart. 

 

If your relationship isn't going so well and you cannot understand how to improve it,  let me help you understand what's going on, why even though you put every effort in to rescue your relationship it continues to go downhill. The goal is to repair and re-build your bond into a secure and lasting one. 

I usually encourage couples to either work weekly in 60 min sessions or fortnightly in 90 min session to start-off the journey of (re-)building their happy relationship. Depending on your unique situation, we will eventually taper out sessions til you as a couple can navigate through the storms of life without me.
