Firstly, well done for starting the process of asking for help and support. It takes great courage to take this decision and make the first step toward change.
We all face difficulties in life and sometimes we might need to look outside friends and family and work through our issues with someone objective and impartial. The aim is to offer a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Yet, there will also be an effort to challenge you, with respect to your limits, beliefs, values, and pace. The content of our work will be established based on your needs and the areas you would like to develop self-awareness.
The Road to authenticity and fulfillment is paved with an intention to know yourself, own yourself, and be yourself!
The approach to therapy is fundamentally person-centered, meaning that you, the client, is the expert on their experience and the direction of their development. In my psychotherapeutic work, I draw from the person-centered, experiential, existential, and emotion-focused approach to therapy. Yet, if these terms don’t really mean anything to you, let me explain a bit further.
Our therapeutic relationship will be based on your needs and the aim is to help you become increasingly more connected to your psychological, behavioural, and emotional processes. During therapy, the arising emotions can be daunting and overwhelming at times, so as a facilitator I will assist you in learning to observe, experience, and integrate difficult emotions while learning to analyze and describe the processes you are going through.
