Why work with a psychologist?
You can find all your answers on your own, after all you are the biggest expert of your life. You can read hundreds of books, spend endless hours ruminating over issues with friends, follow lots of courses, training or workshops. And this may lead you finding out how to solve your issues. However, it will take years, perhaps even tens of years.

Psychologists are trained in guiding people by using effective instruments that work in most cases.

People who work with psychologists have a richer, more authentic and meaningful life. They learn to accept and love themselves, overcome painful emotions, thoughts and stop self-destructive behaviours.

My goals is not to "fix" or change you; it is to:

- Help you face life challenges in your personal way
- Train you in the art of living
- Assist you in developing mechanisms to deal with the inevitable problems, difficulties and crises
- Encourage you to live life by your own standards
- Explore your core values, assumptions and ideas

I enable you to get perspective, to make sense of the world and navigate life.
