To willingly enter into, as fully as possible, the subjective experience of my clients and where they are right now in their lives. I help clients to articulate emotions, needs and beliefs. Then we can begin to work on building trust, securing safe attachments and increasing the ability for clients to give and receive love.
Being very present to my clients and their process. This allows them to recognise familiar patterns of behaviour that’s emerge.
My life has been a process of self-inquiry into the ever present “Now” where ‘I am good enough’. I do believe that everything in life is always in relationship: nothing exists that is not defined by, and that does not gain its meaning through a relationship to something else. My journey so far has brought me to the US, where I studied Anthropology; Singapore, where I studied Counselling and finally to Melbourne, where I completed my Masters in Counselling. As I am originally from Switzerland I speak fluent English, French and German.
Let me share a quote from Elisabeth Kubler Ros: “The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.”
