Therapy & Well-Being

My approach to therapy is grounded in empathy, non-judgment, and respect for your unique experiences and perspectives. I aim to provide a tailored approach to therapy that best meets the needs of my clients. In our work together, we will explore many facets of your life, including your relationships, family dynamics, and personal experiences, to gain a deeper understanding of your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Through our collaborative efforts, we will work to identify patterns and beliefs that may be hindering your growth and well-being, and develop strategies for positive change. I believe in the power of a strong therapeutic relationship, and strive to create a safe space where you can feel comfortable sharing your innermost thoughts and feelings. Whether you are looking to address specific challenges or gain greater insight into yourself and your relationships, I am here to support you every step of the way. Together, we will embark on a journey towards greater self-awareness, healing, and personal growth.

My Therapeutic Approches

I use an integrative approach, which means that I draw on a variety of therapeutic modalities to tailor my work to each client’s specific goals and challenges. Depending on the client and their goals, I may incorporate elements of systemic therapies (such as narrative therapy, solution-focused brief therapy), psychodynamic approach, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), relational and integrative psychotherapy into our work together.

systemic therapy

I am primarily trained as a systemic therapist, which implies that I have a holistic approach to therapy - I do not focus only on an individual's internal experience or their symptoms, but also consider how family dynamics, cultural background, and social environment may be contributing to the client’s difficulties. It’s a flexible approach that I might adapt to a wide range of issues and situations, whether the client is dealing with a specific problem or seeking to improve their overall quality of life.

 

Systemic therapy is a type of psychotherapy that views individuals and their problems within the context of their relationships and social systems. I use this approach to help clients understand how their behaviours and emotions are interconnected with their family and social environment. By exploring the patterns and dynamics within their relationships and social systems, individuals can gain insight into their own behaviour and emotions, and learn to make positive changes that lead to greater self-confidence and fulfilment. 

Among many different systemic approaches, I often use NARRATIVE THERAPY, and SOLUTION-FOCUSED BRIEF THERAPY (SFBT).

narrative therapy

Narrative therapy recognizes that people create stories about their lives that shape their identities and perceptions of the world around them. Through the therapeutic process, I encourage my clients to explore the stories that they tell about themselves and their experiences, and to identify the underlying themes, values, and beliefs that shape these stories. I also try to support them in taking an active role in the therapeutic process, especially when we’re working on creating new, more empowering narratives and meanings that are more aligned with the client’s values and goals. By identifying and challenging negative self-talk and destructive patterns of behaviour, clients can develop new stories that promote personal growth, healing, and well-being.

Relational And Integrative Psychotherapy

When it comes to therapy, I believe the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client is one of the most important factors in promoting positive change and healing. Holding the therapeutic relationship as important means recognizing that therapy is a collaborative process, and that both me and the client play an active role in promoting change and healing. I try to create a safe and supportive environment where clients feel comfortable exploring their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. This involves actively listening to clients, empathising with their experiences, and providing feedback and support when appropriate.  

I prioritise building a strong and trusting relationship with my clients. I do this by showing up in an open and honest way, which involves being authentic and transparent with my clients. This means being open about my own experiences and limitations, as well as being willing to acknowledge and address any mistakes or missteps. Working collaboratively with my clients and building a strong and trusting relationship provides a foundation for exploring and addressing various sensitive issues.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

I use the psychodynamic approach to help clients gain a deeper understanding of themselves, their emotions, and their relationships, in order to achieve greater self-awareness and emotional healing. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is based on the idea that our behaviour and emotions are influenced by unconscious thoughts and feelings. I help individuals become more aware of these unconscious thoughts and feelings in order to gain insight into their behaviour and ultimately achieve personal growth.

 

When doing long-term therapy, I work together with the client to explore their past experiences and early relationships, particularly with their parents or caregivers. The focus is often on uncovering unresolved conflicts and repressed emotions that may be causing the client's current problems.

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT)

Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) is a goal-oriented approach. I especially agree with its assumption that the client has the resources and strengths necessary to achieve their goals and solve their problems, and that my role as a therapist is to help in identifying and utilising these resources.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a goal-oriented type of therapy. I might use certain CBT techniques in order to help clients to identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviours that contribute to their psychological distress, while also supporting them in developing more positive and realistic thoughts and behaviours, which can lead to improvements in mood and behaviour.

CONFIDENTIALITY

Confidentiality is based on the principle of respect for others. At my practice, I prioritise the confidentiality of my clients above all else. I believe that trust is an integral part of the therapeutic process, and that confidentiality is essential to building and maintaining that trust. From the moment we start working together, you can rest assured that your personal information and any disclosures made during our sessions will remain private and secure. As a therapist, I am bound by ethical and legal guidelines to maintain confidentiality at all times, and I take this responsibility very seriously. I believe that providing a safe and confidential space for my clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences is crucial to their overall well-being and success in therapy.
