I help you to build healthy relationships,
both with yourself and others.

About Me

I am psychologist, gestalt therapist and coach.

I help people to build a positive relationship to themselves. In therapeutic process we look for self-love and ability to support ourselves. I personally believe that a healthy relationship to ourselves is the root for building fulfilling relationships with others. Our cooperation pursues these two goals, which I consider to be the essence of life satisfaction.

How I work

As a gestalt therapist, I follow the topics and needs the client brings to each session. I work with what is here and now.
My role is to be a guide who asks questions to help raise awareness and asks in a way that allows a client to find a different perspective.
Sessions don´t have a given structure. We create it together with the help of dialogue and experiments.

Topics we discuss the most:
Relationship to Oneself
  • feelings of failure, low self-confidence and self-worth
  • remorse and self-blame
Relationships
  • relationship issues - not just between partners, but also within a family, at work or among friends,
  • feelings of loneliness, lack of relationships and closeness
General Dissatisfaction
  • feeling of discontent in life, stress and frustration
  • searching for a new direction and life goals
  • important life decisions
Life Demands
  • coping with difficult life situations
  • pressure to perform, perfectionism
  • burn-out syndrome
Mental difficulties
  • anxiety and depression
  • traumatic experience

Gestalt Therapy

My work is based on the principles of Gestalt Therapy.

Main principle of Gestalt approach is to focus on "here and now". It emphasizes our current awareness and experience of the present moment. So it works with the past and the future from the position of the current situation as we experience it here and now.

The basis of Gestalt therapy is therapeutical relationship, which is developed by mutual dialogue, it emphasizes contact and authenticity.

Gestalt approach is based on fenomenology. It supposes that inner experiencing of each of us is unique and subjective. The therapist acknowledges it and offers feed back rather than interpretation.

The goal of Gestalt therapy is to enhance our awareness. It assumes that we can only deal with what we can be aware of. It takes advantage of experiments and creative techniques to enhance awareness and growth.

Gestalt and Me

Principles of Gestalt therapy fit my values and life style. As a therapist I can be authentic in what I do and say in my work.

I strive not to judge others, but understand. Not only their actions but above all their experience. The ability to imagine "walking in someone else´s shoes" leads me to respect and understanding.

My strength is not in consistent planning and structuring. What is natural to me is to accept new situations with interest and the belief that I can solve them creatively.

I am practical and pragmatic in my life. I support learning through experience.
