My approach is based on many hours of client work, the academic profession, and continuous development and training.
It is a humanistic, body-mind approach with a range of skills and strategies, dependent on the area of work.
I welcome every aspect of my client and value their experience. My presence conveys authenticity, openness to experience, spontaneity, and genuineness. I create an atmosphere of warmth and gentleness.
Empathy plays a significant role in my practice. As a Body-mind counsellor, bringing an empathic presence is the most potent ingredient for therapeutic change.
I work in a non-dual way, incorporating mindfulness and meditation, aspects of body psychology, body energetics, and dance and movement psychotherapy. It is impossible to heal the mind if it is disconnected from the body.
I am strongly influenced by the work of Gabor Mate, Bessel Van der Kolk, Janina Fisher, Mick Cooper, and Irvin Yalom.
