My psychotherapy

My psychotherapy sessions

No one approach works for everyone. I tailor my collaboration with you based on the what you’re struggling with. Some issues may be addressed using a solution-focused approach focused on present dilemmas and their solutions. Relationship issues with families and partners or depression and anxiety, may more effectively be addressed using a combination of solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural, and humanistic approaches.

You will find support in our sessions that your outside life is not presently providing. Our joint effort can be specifically directed to improve your ability to:

  • Develop happier and more sustainable relationships
  • Transform depression and low self-esteem
  • Decrease stress and anxiety e.g. anxiety attacks and panic attacks
  • Increase self-awareness and understanding
  • Effectively handle anger and conflicts
  • Accept life transitions and changes with increased confidence
  • Recognize and control self-destructive behaviours
  • Accept and appreciate your strengths and your body
  • Overcome sexual conflicts
  • Cope with traumatic memories and fears
  • Bereavement / grief counselling

Shouldn’t I be able to help myself?

Some confuse therapy with dependency and weakness. Just the contrary! Therapy is a journey of change. It is in your hands. The therapist assists you in clarifying your thoughts and feelings; but you make your own choices. The goal of therapy is to help you gain independence and overcome the obstacles to change and growth.

Our current condition

We are supposed to be living in more enlightened times, yet people continue to suffer from psychological health problems. Statistics show that:

  • 1 in 4 people will experience some kind of psychological disorder in the course of their life...
  • 1 in 6 of us will suffer from depression – most commonly between the ages of 25 and 44…
  • 1 in 10 people are likely to suffer from disabling anxiety at some stage in their life...
