About

I believe that life is filled with challenges and obstacles for a reason; that these have inherent in them a great potential for personal growth and transformation that only becomes manifest once we face our problems and endeavour to understand them. The first step towards overcoming our sorrow is to listen to what it has to tell us: the lesson that it is here to teach. Nonetheless, most of us do not have the presence, nor the guidance, nor the knowledge of how to provide our difficult thoughts and emotions with the space that they need. This lack of space is what leads to increased anxiety, depression, as well as low self-esteem.
The therapy that I offer is designed with the goal of providing space to ourselves — to our difficult thoughts and emotions. This is, I believe, the only way to lasting inner peace and fulfilment. As long as we keep our emotions at arm's length or hidden in a dark corner, life will remain superficial, unsatisfying and conflict-ridden.
As we’ve grown older, we’ve become increasingly overwhelmed by our feelings that we have developed the tendency to push them away — deep inside! This is the reason why most of us tend to regard our emotional experience as a heavy burden. We've built the dam and now we're wondering why we're drowning! There is a way out — let me show you how!
