Why psychotherapy?

What is the journey about?
Know thyself

We all experience losses and setbacks in our lives. Emotional and physical pain. We may have lost a sense of direction and wait for something to happen. The aim of therapy is to open up a space where you can make sense of what is happening and see what choices are available to you. It can help you develop awareness and self-understanding, support you at difficult times, help you reconnect to your own strengths.

Panta rei

“Everything flows” in ancient Greek, nothing stays the same. It’s like water in a river, always moving, always changing. We change all the time and we are never the same. Therapy can help accept change in your life. It can help make sense of what is happening and take responsibility for what you can control, let go of what you can’t, accept all of yourself and fully embrace life.

Make a connection

It is a strange world we live in. We are all connected through many wired and wireless devices, we can travel the cyberspace, the space and the earth as we have never done before and we can still feel at times so utterly and inexplicably alone. Therapy can help reestablish a meaningful connection to yourself, the others and the world and live more fulfilling relationships.


Integrity Respect Impartiality

Psychotherapy requires active participation on both sides, client and therapist, with the focus on the relationship built together. You will find a safe and non-judgemental space where you will feel supported in talking about yourself and in exploring difficult issues. Therapy aims to help you find in yourself the resources and the strengths to make meaningful changes and to live a more fulfilling life. Healing will come as part of a process of growth and self-acceptance.

  • Psychotherapy is not like going to a doctor
  • It is not directive
  • It is not about fixing
