Having trained in the UK at the highest standard currently available (which included achieving an MA in psychotherapy) and having been through a 16-year long personal therapeutic journey myself, psychotherapy is my passion and my call.

After specialising in Gestalt Psychotherapy, I have expanded my professional expertise first to the field of third-wave CBT (Mindfulness and Acceptance Therapy) and more recently to Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Nonviolent Communication (NVC). This is how I use these approaches in my practice:

  • Mindfulness and Acceptance Therapy help identify thoughts and beliefs that are at play when symptoms are present
  • Motivational Interviewing supports the process of making important decisions when we are ambivalent and stuck
  • Nonviolent Communication is the most effective way I have encountered to deal with conflict
  • Gestalt Therapy helps becoming aware of emotions, feelings and sensations in the here and now and in relation to others, and experiment safely with new behaviour
  • Internal Family Systems is one of the most effective techniques to deal with trauma and understand how past burdens influence the present

Many clients feel a sense of relief from the very first session, and some of them have been able to solve difficult problems with 4 sessions or less. I strongly believe in the human potential to feel better and to move on even from the darkest circumstances. Be it anxiety, depression, OCD or PTSD, there is always hope.

I regularly write articles on mental health and I publish some of them on mine or other websites.
