Individual counselling is a process whereby our inner world and the drivers behind our decisions and actions become clearer, and more understandable. Our motivations and desires become more and more accessible. Understanding the logic of emotions, an order is drawn into the world of the previously maybe chaotic emotional turmoil, and thereby our inner compass starts giving guidance through feelings.
In my work, I strive to provide a welcoming and safe environment where everything can appear, where there is nothing to be ashamed of. I think this is how we can get closer to ourselves, become free and more self-identical. My goal in counselling is to help my clients’ personal development. Some people think that those who visit a psychologist’s private practice have something wrong with them, or they are weak. I think turning to a professional for help requires great courage. Those who dare to ask for help and face their own depths and shadows are brave people.
What issues I usually work with?
I don’t work with standard, pre-fabricated solutions, for me the person’s uniqueness defines the counselling process. I am approached with a variety of life situations by clients. Some examples:
- Relationship issues, conflicts
- Crises, breakup, divorce
- Dating problems, difficulties connecting with others
- Communication strategies, developing skills
- Assertiveness, self-esteem, self-confidence issues
- Relationship with parents, attachment – detachment transition, self-reliance
- Dependence – independence, autonomy
- Am I living my own life?
- Coping with stressful situations
- Feelings of emptiness
- Workplace problems, challenges, performance, burnout
- I would like to get to know myself better, self-awareness
- Grief recovery
- Existential issues
How I work
As a psychologist, I won’t be giving advice. I rarely talk about what I think is the right decision to make, or action to take. The reason for this is that I believe in the client’s power to find their own answers in a safe environment. It is the client who has to take responsibility for the consequences of their decisions. I strive to understand together how the client makes decisions and what desires, motivations and fears move them.
I rely mainly on the theoretical framework of person-centred counselling and a systemic approach of individual therapy. All counselling sessions are treated with complete confidentiality. In my work I hold myself to the ethical standards defined by the Code of Ethics of the Hungarian Psychological Society.
How many counselling sessions will be needed?
In a counselling process, changes occur gradually, in a relationship. One meeting may not be enough to bring about the expected changes. Meetings take place at a set time, on a weekly basis. Usually at least a few months are necessary for a lasting change.
There is opportunity for both short-term (jointly pre-determined number of sessions) and open-ended counselling. Open-ended counselling means that we do not fix the number of sessions at the beginning, the work will end when you feel you have received the support you needed.
