Many of my clients turn to me because they experience bodily restlessness, anxiety, confusion, grief, shame, fierce anger, self-harm, inferiority, existential crisis, or worrying thoughts that take up a lot of their energy.
Whatever brings you into therapy, with my background I can help you to:
- Feel and make room for inner pain and bodily discomfort so that it will be released or easier to embrace.
- Find the core behind your symptoms, your discomfort, or your difficulties in relationships/at work.
- Work on your self-esteem.
- Understand why you think, feel, and act as you do, so you can begin to relate differently to yourself and others.
- Process the traumas of the past.
- Become aware of patterns of behavior that were once the best possible, but which today are inappropriate and harmful for you.
- Become more aware of your mental resources.
- Take responsibility for your life.
Framework for a course of therapy
When you come for the first time, it’s mainly about sensing the contact between us. Do you feel safe, listened to, and validated? Together we will clarify which difficulties you have, and what I can offer.
If we both find it meaningful, we can agree on a framework and plan some future sessions. Some courses are short (3-5 sessions), but in many cases, a long course will be relevant. At some point, the course will find its natural end.
A therapeutic course is very personal and deserves to be rounded off with a clear goodbye.
