Tämä terapeutti toimii vapaaehtoisena TOIVO.ME - hankkeessa. Jos olet terveydenhuollon ammattilainen, voit tiedustella maksutonta keskusteluapua terapeutilta, vaikka terapeutti ei muutoin ottaisi uusia asiakkaita.

Huomioithan, että TOIVO.ME - hankkeessa tarjottava apu on suunnattu koronakriisissä työskenteleville terveydenhuollon työntekijöille. Keskusteluapu on kertaluontoista (1-2 kertaa) eikä ole terveydenhuoltoa. Näin ollen profiiliteksti ei kaikin osin kuvaa TOIVO.ME-keskusteluja.

Kun tiedustelet vapaata aikaa, muista mainita TOIVO.ME - hankkeesta sekaannusten välttämiseksi.

About me as a therapist

I try to build a trustful relationship with my clients by true listening and an empathic, accepting and non-judging attitude. I guide and orientate client´s feelings, attitudes, thoughts and actions and support them to break non-functional patterns of behaviour to be able to experience the world from a new perspective. I believe the key to finding solutions to our problems lies within ourselves; my role is to help to discover the key.

About my therapy sessions

My work is based on psychoanalytic and psychodynamic theories (Guided Affective Imagery). GAI uses imaginations, that are worked out and integrated in a subsequent interview. The inner reality is displayed on a symbolic level, including current tuning, conscious and unconscious conflicts. In addition I use MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction), dreamwork and other stress reduction techniques in my work.
