My treatment methodology combines Psychodynamic , CBT, Hakomi, EMDR and Brainspotting with my personality style to create a unique psycho-social-somatic therapy practice.
Individual counselling is helpful when you are in a state of chronic or intense unhappiness, discomfort, stress or anxiety, fear, fatigue, anger, hopelessness, etc...and you no longer want to be in that state. Individual therapy may be the first step toward positive change in your life. Couples decide to work with me when the following issues arise in their relationship: Emotional and/or physical infidelity; Communication breakdowns; Inability to resolve conflicts without fighting; Unmet emotional needs; Gradual loss of intimacy, affection, or sex; Mood disturbances (depression, anxiety); High stress levels, etc...

I am both interested in how your earliest relationships have formed you ( psychodynamic , attachment and intersubjective theory) and what happened on the way to the consulting room today, and indeed in the room (person-centred, humanistic).
I work with adults in Geneva and surrounding areas who are looking for an English-speaking therapist. Are you are struggling with a change in your life or with unsettling emotions that are difficult to make sense of? Perhaps you are in the middle of a life transition or perhaps you feel that you are stuck in a repetitive and dull place where it feels hard to move? Are you a pregnant woman or a parent of an infant and want some support with the variety of feelings that come with pregnancy and parenthood? Have you moved to Switzerland and are struggling to settle?

Are you struggling with repetitive pattern, or symptoms, emotional, affective or psychological issues ? Rather than taking medication and treating the issue on the surface, would you prefer to better understand why this is happening to you, and why it happens ? With more than 23 year of private practice of psychotherapy, I can help you to cope with your situation and, most of the time, turn it into a positive experience. My work focuses on qualitative change, and for that we'll analyze things under the surface.

We can all find life uncertain and overwhelming at times. Sometimes a crisis arises that feels unresolvable without professional help, or maybe events from the past weigh on us for no apparent reason. I have found the most common reasons to seek psychotherapy are related to depression, stress, anxiety, challenges with eating, and relationship problems. Experience shows that our psyche is able to bring itself back into balance and heal itself, given the right circumstances. Therapy provides a supportive environment to discuss such concerns, explore underlying causes and strengthen our ability to make desired life changes.

The protective power of arts in health and mental health has been with us for millennia and today is evidence based. Daily life's emotional demands often go unnoticed and coping with anger, fear and sadness is socially accepted to happen in silence. Nourishing and protecting our mental health can get easily neglected. Although family and friends can play a wonderful supportive role in times of need they may not be enough in times of crisis. Making the choice to look after our mental health is our first step to personal growth. Making art is creative and fun. Being part of a supportive and safe group is therapeutic.

At different times in life we may encounter both external and internal difficulties and the psyche talks to us in various ways: sometimes through symptoms of insomnia or depression, anxiety or recurring thoughts, feelings of emptiness and despair - sometimes through inner questions of meaning, an urge to know more and wish to find our place. We may be confronted with personal dilemmas that seem unlikely to be solved, and feel trapped or imprisoned. Jungian psychotherapy is a journey to find the roots of such difficulties, to better understand the meaning underlying our suffering and to help integrate these insights into our life.

Emotion complements reason in ways which can be confusing, especially considering the social animal we are as humans: living with remarkable sensitivity to one another. Emotion guides us toward knowing our unmet needs. In therapy, only you can be the expert of your inner world's path. It is an honor to accompany you while maintaining focus on your goals, limiting distraction and avoidance behaviors, and fostering opportunities for appropriate self advocacy and self compassion.

Psychodynamic Counsellors

Is psychodynamic therapy evidence-based?

Studies have found psychodynamic therapy to be effective in treating conditions like social anxiety, eating disorders, chronic pain, some personality disorders, and depression; indeed, some studies have found it to be just as effective as CBT or medication. What’s more, several studies have found that the benefits of psychodynamic therapy tend to endure—even grow—long after treatment has ended.

How long does psychodynamic therapy last?

Unlike CBT and other more structured forms of therapy, psychodynamic therapy tends to be open-ended and may not be limited to a set number of sessions. It is common for clients to be in therapy for a year or longer and to see their therapist one to three times a week, though the exact schedule and timeline may vary depending on a client’s challenges and progress. However, brief psychodynamic therapy is available, which tends to be more goal-oriented and typically unfolds over 16 to 30 sessions.

Does psychodynamic therapy work?

Research finds that psychodynamic therapy can help someone manage or reduce symptoms of diagnosable mental health conditions like depression or anxiety. The modality may also offer a range of benefits that are harder to measure but just as valuable—such as increased self-worth or healthier relationships. While no therapy type will work for everyone, research and anecdotal evidence suggest that psychodynamic therapy can be highly effective.

What are the limitations of psychodynamic therapy?

Some meta-analyses have concluded that there is little evidence to suggest that psychodynamic therapy can effectively treat certain mental health conditions such as PTSD, OCD, or psychosis, though it is sometimes used to do so. More broadly, the open-ended, free-association structure of psychodynamic therapy may be frustrating for clients who prefer a more structured, time-limited, or goal-oriented approach.
