Maybe life seem to have taught you that you don’t matter, that’s not ok for you to take space, to express yourself authentically, like you are worth less than others. Maybe you just don’t seem to know how to relate to your feelings or simply feel so much that it feels overwhelming. Maybe you grew tired of feeling alone and sad, keeping distance from others to feel safer. Maybe you are tired of worrying about what others may say or think and that worrying freezes you from doing or saying what you’d like to. Maybe there’s something you always wanted to do, like a dream, but you don’t believe possible.
I specialise working with those strategies that were learned earlier in life and/or during painful experiences to keep us safe. Together we can explore them in a safe/welcoming environment to find what needs they have, experimenting mindfully how we can move through them. Together we can find resources your body needs to expand what feels tolerable in life.
There are ways that our bodies hold beliefs/painful memories that can hold us back in life. Together we can explore new ways of being in the world, be it at home or at work, with friends or significant others.Together we can explore how much more freedom is possible in your life, how to create space to try things out, and how to have a more fulfilling life.
Andare a vivere in un paese lontano dal quale si è nati, a volte, riporta alla memoria situazioni e sentimenti che si erano messi da parte. Se vi sentite soli, ansiosi, provate mancanza di motivazione, la necessità di sentirvi supportati nel vivere quotidiano, io sono ben felice di incontrarvi al fine di esplorare insieme com’è possibile affrontare insieme questo processo al fine di migliorare la vostra qualità della vita. Queste difficoltà, se non affrontate, possono rendere difficile sentirsi appagati e soddisfatti.
Le mie specializzazioni nel campo psicoterapeutico sono: trauma, ansia, sensi di colpa e vergogna, stati di angoscia, differenze culturali, in ambito personale e relazionale.
Lavorando assieme, possiamo scoprire quali siano i vostri bisogni, sviluppare maggiore consapevolezza di voi stessi, al fine di realizzare quali comportamenti meglio supportano i vostri sentimenti e come sia possibile costruire, passo per passo, una vita differente che vi offra maggior significato in relazione ai vostri valori personali.
