Find your answers, and your road map to relationships…
My goal is to give a safe space, where you can talk about anything without shame, where you don’t have to withhold parts of you to feel accepted; instead I invite you to have an open-minded conversation about thoughts, feelings and needs. As we progress, sensations, motivations and emotions become more accessible and easier to understand. Meanwhile, beside expectations of the outside world, the message of your internal compass becomes more and more listened to.
I am following evidence-based practices, which rely on firmly grounded scientific research and efficiency studies, such as person-centred psychology or emotion focused therapy (EFT).
My intention is to understand motives together. Every individual is embedded in all kinds of relationships with others. We spend a significant part of our life in groups such as family, work, leisure and social groups. That is why our problems usually originate from the relationships we have within those groups. Judging the book by its cover, and thus examining only the surface of those relationships, we may be convinced that the problem is caused by one individual. Widening our perspective, we may realise that problems result from the dysfunctional attributes of a bigger system, in which the individual becomes the symptom-bearer. Whenever I work with individuals, groups or families, I view every person as a member of their distinctive groups.
My aim is to support the personal growth, freedom and autonomy of my clients. I provide a safe and confidential environment, in which you can talk about anything without shame, thus it becomes possible to explore and understand inner motivational forces and social relationships in depth, with all the difficulties and pleasures they involve.
Relationship conflicts often take place according to a recurring choreography, which the members of the couple unwittingly and yet jointly establish. This cycle usually starts undetected, but if it starts off, it’s hard to stop. The purpose of couples’ counselling is to understand how these mutually painful situations are created and how to deviate from these sometimes rigid patterns.
We spend much of our life in groups, in the workplace, in the family, at school, and also in broader groups of society. The self-awareness group is a laboratory situation, where we can observe and understand how we behave in certain group situations, how group dynamics affect us. At the same time, we can improve our skills, which we make use of as group members.
