psychotherapeutic counselling


In my early professional years I was asking the question:
 How can I treat, or cure, or change this person?
 Now I would phrase the question in this way:
 How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?
             (Carl Rogers, On Becoming a Person, 1961)
My professional approach is based on the philosophy of Carl Rogers, who believed that in the right conditions we can develop, grow and heal in the best possible way for ourselves. Those conditions – which include empathetic listening, unconditional acceptance and personal authenticity – can be created in a person-to-person setting, and this is what I aim for in my practice. Our lives are constantly shifting and changing. Many parts are beautiful, but we can also find ourselves in difficult, dark and painful places. We experience loss and we carry with us hurt from our childhoods. We’re not happy with ourselves, our relationships, our lives. We search, but then we feel like we haven’t got the strength anymore... and so sometimes we sense that we need support, a chance to talk things through, to find some answers, or to heal particular aspects of our lives. In these situations psychotherapy can be of real help. Sessions take the form of a conversation, generally 50 minutes, although I can also try and work with you on a different format according to your needs. As a therapist I don’t see myself as an authority or advisor, more like a guide, and I always try to create an atmosphere of safety and unconditional acceptance, where there is space for everything you want to deal with. It goes without saying that therapy is a place of absolute discretion and confidentiality.

Some situations where psychotherapy can help: 
Personal crisis 
Loss or major life changes 
Anxiety, panic, fear 
Sadness and depression 
Psychosomatic issues, pain, fatigue  
Emotional stress 
Relationship issues 
Low self-esteem 
Feelings of unfulfillment, disappointment 
Self-discovery, searching for meaning 
Longing for self-understanding 
Needing to understand changes arising on your spiritual path 
Desire for change
I conduct my professional practice in accordance with the
Statement of Ethical Principles of the European Association for Psychotherapy

“Am I living in a way which is deeply satisfying to me, and which truly expresses me?”

This question, posed by Carl Rogers, has accompanied me for most of my adult life. And I believe it was the desire to answer “Yes” that led me to my first contact with psychotherapy – now more than 10 years ago. Through study and self-experience I set out then on a voyage of discovery, trying to find out what it means, for me, to live a fulfilled and authentic life. And so, slowly but surely, my passion grew into my profession. 
I’m a woman, Mum to two amazing children, and a psychotherapist at the supervision stage of training in the Person-Centred Approach (PCA). I see therapy as an encounter on a deep human level, a means to discover one’s own healing potential, and a process of searching for answers together. In my practice I strive to keep on learning, and to keep on growing in my life.

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am,
then I change.”
