My interest in psychotherapy, spirituality and meditation began after the end of my marriage several years ago, which like many other types of losses, triggered a lot of suffering.

​A friend of mine introduced me to the practice of meditation and I soon went on to a Buddhist centre to take an introductory course in the grounding practices of breath focusing and love and kindness. These meditation practices were followed by psychotherapeutic sessions which, in turn, introduced me not only to the field of psychotherapy but also to spirituality. meditation, spirituality and psychotherapy all came together to facilitate my personal growth. This is what I would like to share with you - how to improve your mental health by discovering yourself.

I use a Humanistic and Integrative approach to the practice of psychotherapy. I believe that the most crucial factors for healing are the nature of the therapeutic relationships and the development of self-awareness. I focus on building a safe environment in which my clients can securely express their thoughts, emotions, and body sensations.

By integrating the cognitive, emotional, and sensorimotor components psychotherapy goes beyond just talking about an issue but becomes a form of experiential learning. I aim to support my client develop their full potential and becoming independent human being intimately connected with the other and the environment.
