What can I offer
Therapy begins with awareness. The first step in therapy is to explore how things are for you and learn more about your patterns. Patterns of how you think, you act and you feel and patterns within your relationships, whatever the nature. Once we recognise the patterns, we need to find out more about their origins and their function. We can then explore together whether you want to change, it’s your choice, your only. I will provide you with support, but also challenge, using an integrative approach (Transactional Analysis, Psychodynamic techniques, and Mentalization-based Treatment), which especially aims to facilitate the individual’s capacities for self-actualisation and healing by learning to recognise and change old, self-limiting patterns. In other words, to deal with the pain of the past in the present, so that you are free to live your life in the future. The aim is for you to understand yourself and your relationships, and to create options to live your life in an aware, creative, spontaneous way and open to intimacy.
My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to: chronic stress, anxiety, communication difficulties, mood swings/depression, negative self-image, relationship difficulties, adjustment difficulties, work stress/burnout and challenges throughout your studies.
