MSc, BA, PgDipl
I started studying counseling and therapy techniques as well as psychology 20 years ago. I have obtained an MSc in psychology, a postgraduate diploma in person-centered and CBT counselling, a postgraduate diploma in drama education, and a BA in counselling and social studies. I have a friendly, non-judgemental attitude to others. People usually feel very comfortable opening up to me. I am happy to connect with anyone regardless of their cultural backgrounds. I have been educated in different types of evidence-based therapeutic methods (e.g. CBT and mindfulness techniques, autogenic training) and have practiced psychodrama and bibliodrama. I tailor my therapeutic approach to my client’s individual needs. I have a holistic approach to life and have also studied alternative methods such as yoga and breathing techniques that help manage stress. I look at all aspects of a person (physical condition, social connections, personal beliefs) in order to help improve their well-being. I feel it is important to approach life from all angles. I have worked in different mental health settings, and in multicultural environments to practice how to connect with people of diversity. Taking a holistic approach allows me to realize whether your spiritual beliefs are essential for your emotional well-being. I take your social background and spiritual beliefs into account when I put myself in your shoes to understand your mindset. Creativity plays a vital role in mental health and well-being. Encouraging clients to get engaged in creative tasks is my favorite method to help them experiment with new perspectives and behaviors.
