My Approach to Helping
My approach to therapy is based on Jungian psychoanalysis in combination with Integrative and Holistic approaches which look at an individual as a whole system: mind-body-spirit. Very often body speaks about psychological problems, and physical illness affects the mood and emotions. Jungian psychoanalysis looks at the processes of the psyche in a symbolic, metaphorical way allowing to see seemingly mundane things from a different perspective.
I believe that everything happens in people's lives for a reason, and life events can affect us on different levels starting from physical, continuing by emotional and finishing by spiritual. Therefore, my approach to psychotherapy is based on a combination of Eastern philosophy and Western science that look very differently at human experiences and approach suffering in distinct ways.
Trained in both traditional scientific and alternative spiritual approaches to psychotherapy, I use a variety of ways to help my clients address life complications they experience. My training in clinical hypnosis, tarot, handwriting analysis, and energy work all help me assist my clients in understanding themselves better and accessing their internal resources to make positive changes in their lives.
After having traveled the world and lived in different countries, I have experience working with culturally diverse clients.
Having a professional background in linguistics, I pay particular attention to the effect that the language people use has on their worldview and their psychological well-being because the way we think and perceive the world affects the way the behave and actions we take.
My style of therapy is direct, and I call things by their names. At the same time, I am gentle and understanding of internal processes you go through.
