Change for the better
"Your visions will become pure when you look into your heart. He who looks outside dreams; he who looks inside awakens."
My approach to psychotherapy
I tailor my approach to each individual. I listen and I don't judge. I believe that every person who manages to find courage and to come to a chemistry session is full of good - even though she/he may not see or feel it at that moment. I believe in the healing power of the client-therapist relationship. I believe that together we can better understand your problems and find different, better ways to cope with life's challenges. Therapy heals by conversation. It can also provide strong support in the child adoption process.
Psychotherapy is not a magic pill, it is a process that requires dedication from both the client and the therapist. Psychotherapy is a journey through our inner territories - sometimes exciting, sometimes difficult. It is the path to a better life, to a better relationship with ourselves and others. It is an adventure in which perseverance and small steps bring about great changes. For the better.
Psychotherapy heals with conversation. The therapeutic relationship also has healing potential.
Whether it iss mental disorders, lack of self-confidence, anxiety or depression, dealing with the loss of a loved one or other grief,
a decline in motivation and/or burnout -
when you feel like you can’t go on like this anymore, that you need to change something, then it is time to gather courage and call me.
If you want to discover who you are now, live a better life and have more satisfying and healthy relationships. If you want to move from the dark towards the light and get out of the grip of depression and / or overload - it's time to meet in a cognitive meeting.

> after the adoption of the child (parents' expectations, acceptance of the child and his culture, creation of a support network, changed relationships within the family, balancing parenting and work)
For couples and for single adoptive parents.
I have personal experience with adopting a child from abroad. I know how challenging this path is, so I can help you, both with practical advice and with a therapeutic conversation, at all stages of adoption.
