My Philosophy

“Dare to love yourself as if you were a rainbow with gold at both ends.”

 Aberjhani ~"Journey through the Power of the Rainbow"

Kintsugi is the Japanese art of mending broken pottery pieces back together with gold — built on the philosophy that in embracing flaws and imperfections, you can create an even stronger, more beautiful piece of art.

 

The beauty is in the repairs of the brokenness, which has created something more unique, beautiful and resilient than it was before it was broken. Instead of hiding the scars, it puts them on display. The scars are the art. The broken pieces have renewed essence, with their flawed edges and imperfections. The whole piece acquires a new identity.

Like the art of precious scars, in my philosophy and practice, the concept of kintsugi is underlying all the work we do together. We seek the beauty amongst the scars and pain, and together, work on enabling you to appreciate the strength and resilience that you have within. To not shy away and hide your scars, but wear them proudly, recognising the power and beauty and appreciating and respecting the person you have become along the way.

My approach

 Each person is a vast universe, and my purpose is to help you uncover your hidden resources and untapped strengths, to gain clarity and perspective of what troubles you. I aim to empower you to deal with difficult emotions and experiences, and to find the solutions to improve your well-being. In my practice, I work integratively and use a variety of theoretical approaches, including the Psychodynamic approach, Person-Centred Therapy, Existential Approach, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

 

 My philosophy is that each person experiences the world in a unique way, and there is no "one size fits all" approach. I believe that therapy is a co-creative process and that the therapeutic relationship is fundamental to any good therapeutic outcome. As a result, our therapeutic work becomes distinctly personal,  tailored to you and your specific needs.  

 

Whatever the challenges you need support with, I aim to provide you with a warm and safe space, and a caring presence of complete acceptance and no judgement. In such an environment, you may begin to express and explore difficult feelings and thoughts, and painful experiences from the past or the present. Thus, the healing process can begin and you can gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your relationship to others and the world.

Which approach is best for me?

At our first introductory session, we will explore your current issues and what brought you to therapy. I will enquire about your background and will assess your specific needs.  We will discuss and decide which type of therapy would be most suited to you and we can set goals for treatment.

I will also explain more extensively how I work and you will have the chance to ask questions to decide whether you would like to start therapy with me.

We will also discuss the options available to you, from long-term therapy to short-term counselling. At the end of the first session, I aim to leave you with a clear understanding what to expect from our work together.
