It’s something you believe in, love, live, connect with and where you learn every day. Every day you learn and develop as a person but also as a professional. You change with your clients and all the life stories you hear from them. Each touches you and you are there with respect, discovering forgotten resources, respecting and appreciating, watching how change is possible and admiring human resilience.
I build a relationship of trust and respect with clients, but above all we build a safe space for everything that needs to be heard, seen and shared. I don’t have a magic wand although sometimes we imagine the world would be different if we had it in our hands. The magic is in us and is created through active effort in mental health. By working together, we discover what prevents clients from using their capacities to overcome problems, crises and challenges. My strength, as a psychotherapist, is a sincere interest in each being and its soul, empathy, respect and patience to find together the ways that are best for the client.
I believe that each of us is valuable and unique, that each relationship is special, and each family has its own life story that it seeks to tell. I rely on personal experience but also on the wide range of psychotherapeutic approaches available to me to find the best approach for each client. How long the psychotherapeutic process will last depends on many factors, on the specifics of the situation you are in, on motivation, on the challenges that surround you, on the Support System, the complexity of the problem or trauma, etc. My basic starting point is to experience you now and here, in current life situations and relationships in which you are dysfunctionally involved, and you do not know how to move forward. Although symptoms are important, the focus is always on you as a complete person, as well as on the family, social or professional relationships you live in that contribute to maintaining or resolving problems.
Through psychotherapeutic work, I help clients to more adequately solve and overcome various life problems and crises, such as anxiety, depression, marital problems, conflicts in interpersonal relationships, parenting and developmental crises, problems at work, etc. If you decide to work on models and schemes that are no longer functional or supporting psychotherapeutic work, it is longer and more comprehensive.
