Space to say whatever you need to, without the fear of hurting others or being judged.
Space to attend to your feelings and needs without the expectations to adjust, obey, or look after others.
Space to listen to your embodied experience and your dreams.
In this unique environment in which both therapist and you as a client, focus on your experience, you can learn about your needs, and how you may inhibit yourself from getting them met. You will become aware of the way you speak to yourself internally (critically or compassionately), how you interpret reality, and how it impacts you. We will learn from the way we relate to each other in the room, about the way you relate to others in the world, and I will invite you to try and do things differently. For example: to be more direct, or assertive. We may attend to ‘Unfinished Business’ – a Gestalt term that describes unprocessed feelings connected to certain events or people in our past that may need to be acknowledged, expressed or mourned to allow us to fully engage with our present.
What to expect when you call
When you call or send an email we will arrange two introductory sessions. In these sessions you will have an opportunity to talk about what brought you to therapy and get an idea about my way of working, and a sense of whether I would be suitable for you. In case we both feel I can be of assistance to you, we will agree to meet for an open ended work that could last a few months or a year, or for a short term (a minimum of 6-8 sessions) . Therapy sessions last 50 minutes, and I would allocate a regular weekly time for our sessions.
