Das Leben ist zu kurz, um nicht so glücklich, erfüllt und selbstbestimmt zu sein, wie wir es uns wünschen und führen können. Manchmal können Sie es alleine schaffen, aber manchmal möchten Sie sich an jemanden wenden können, der Ihnen einen einfühlsamen und geschützten Raum bietet, um sich mit Ihrem tiefsten, authentischsten Selbst zu verbinden. Vielleicht erleben Sie Ihre Beziehung stagnierend, emotional/physisch getrennt oder durch Verletzungen, Vertrauensbruch und Enttäuschungen belastet und suchen Klarheit, einen neuen Weg, entweder zusammen oder getrennt zu gehen.
Mein professioneller Hintergrund (Abgeschlossene Ausbildungen in Bowen Family Systems, Gottman Methode für Paartherapie-Stufe1 und Hypnotherapie, sowie diverse Weiterbildungen) und ein tiefes Verständnis der menschlichen Erfahrung prägen meinen Therapieansatz. Gemeinsam werden wir herausfinden, wie Sie wertvolle und dauerhafte Veränderungen erreichen können.
Es erfordert Mut und Engagement, uns mit uns selbst zu konfrontieren, vor allem mit den Aspekten, die wir am liebsten verbergen oder nicht ändern möchten. Als Therapeutin unterstütze ich Sie, einen sicheren und nicht wertenden Raum zu schaffen. Mein Engagement in unserer Zusammenarbeit gilt dem Ziel, dass Sie selbstbewusst Ihr Leben wertvoll gestalten.
Life is too short to live it feeling unsatisfied, confused, depleted and or powerless. Sometimes you can manage, but other times you want to turn to someone who will provide an empathic, non-judgmental space for you to (re)connect with your deepest, most authentic self. Maybe you are in a relationship which feels stagnant, emotionally/physically disconnected or is burdened by accumulated hurts and betrayals, and you and your partner are seeking clarity, support and a new way of being either together or apart. Being skillful in relationships with others (and oneself) has become essential, and is central to our well being.
My training and a deep understanding of the human experience informs my approach to therapy. I have completed training in Bowen Family Systems, Level 1 Gottman Couple Therapy and hypnotherapy. Together we can explore the meaning you attribute to your experience and how the patterns you are stuck in shape your relationships so you can achieve lasting change.
It takes courage and dedication to explore and confront those aspects of ourselves that we most want to hide or to make changes that we find inconceivable. As a therapist, I strive to create a safe space, and tell you not what you want to hear but what you need to hear. I am dedicated to working with you in creating the life you aspire to have and deseve.
La vita è troppo breve per viverla sentendosi insoddisfatti, confusi, impoveriti e/o impotenti. A volte è possibile gestire da soli, ma altre volte si desidera rivolgersi a qualcuno che fornisca uno spazio empatico e non giudicante. Forse siete in un rapporto che si sente stagnante, emotivamente/fisicamente scollegato o è caricato da ferite e tradimenti accumulati: voi due state cercando chiarezza, sostegno e un nuovo modo di stare insieme o separati. Essere abili nelle relazioni è diventato essenziale ed è fondamentale per il nostro benessere.
La mia formazione e una profonda comprensione dell'esperienza umana informano il mio approccio alla terapia. Ho completato la formazione in Bowen Family Systems, Terapia di coppia Gottman (livello 1) e ipnoterapia. Insieme possiamo esplorare il significato che attribuisce alla sua esperienza in modo da poter ottenere un cambiamento duraturo.
Ci vuole coraggio e dedizione per esplorare e confrontarsi con quegli aspetti di noi stessi che vogliamo nascondere o fare i cambiamenti che troviamo inconcepibili. Come terapista, mi sforzo di creare uno spazio sicuro e non giudicante, pieno di empatia e sostegno. Mi dedico a lavorare con lei per creare la vita che desidera avere e che merita.
