About me as a therapist

As a therapist I offer clients a safe space where through our therapeutic relationship the client can start to heal and work on difficult things in order to improve their well being and life quality. I listen carefully and try to understand well what are the emotional events and thought processes the client has and what coping mechanisms or defenses they use. I offer explanations that help the client understand their own internal events and work together with them to achieve both insight and change. The most important thing for me as a therapist is to have a strong and good relationship so clients feel secure and safe to express themselves freely.

About my therapy sessions

The first consultation is usually longer, about 75 minutes, where the client will have to sign a consent form and I will listen and ask many questions to make sure I have understood well their consultation reasons. During the first few session, I will get to know the client better and the issues on a deeper level, and also talk about goals of therapy and so on, with which I can start making a treatment plan. This will be discussed and reviewed with the client throughout the whole therapy term to see what is and what is not working.
