About

Are you looking for help with various life challenging issues/situations? Have you got to the point where you can't go on alone and need someone else to help you? Whatever you are facing, you no longer have to do this alone, I am here to provide you with relevant support and address your needs. As an integrative counsellor I am using a compilation of therapeutic methods tailored to the individual's needs and goals providing an environment for enablement and empowerment of their achievement.
I am a compassionate counsellor and committed life-coach with an extensive higher education background (Four Master's degrees and a Doctorate) in the fields of Psychology, Counselling and Theology. Being a qualified and accredited counsellor I offer a variety of services to address the needs of the individual living in a complex and highly demanding world.
Talking support sessions will provide safe and empowering environment to rebuild and transform oneself through the discussions. Integrating science, theories, treatments and experience I offer a holistic approach. A personal plan with goals is prepared in agreement and through the work a journey of its fulfilment begins.

Addiction and Spirituality

Addiction may occur in literary every sphere of life e.g. substances, alcohol, gambling, internet, pornography, food etc. Every addiction is an expensive habit as well as detrimental for personal health, wellbeing and development. The impact is not only on oneself but on one’s family, relatives and friends. Spirituality on the other hand provides the framework of love, compassion and acceptance for uplifting the person and supporting healthy life choices and stable recovery. The group establishes connections providing an effective learning context. Counselling facilitation in this context supports a safe way to successful recovery. This is an online group.
