The greek word "therapy" is the act of attending to someone. It implies the therapist intentionality to take care and support the patient. If you are looking at this page now, it is probably because it might be the right time to be heard and to hear yourself. The right time for you to take care of yourself.
Did you hear anybody say:
Other common reasons:
Most of us go to therapy carrying labels (I am depressed, I have or I am a personality disorder and so on...). I would like to invite you to carry all your labels as if they were boxes. Then I will ask you to open them with me one by one and we'll take care of the content. We will use what necessary and bin what you don't need anymore. There is no point in travelling heavy all the times, life is a journey too rich to be slowed down by useless weight. Many people come to counselling because they want answers. I believe that we need to create the right questions instead. Answers close the “space”, make us rush into definitions that reduce the potential in our lives. However, the right questions make space for novelty to emerge and make space for us to find new meanings.
I believe that there is a time in life when we feel ready to start the therapeutic journey with somebody. This moment is called the "kairos", the appropriate time. Like sailors would not venture themselves in the inclement weather conditions, so shouldn't we. I can help you decide if this is your time.
I support therapy as an act of responsibility. By this I do not mean, culpability, blame or guilt. I mean the "the ability to respond" to ourselves and to other people or life events. We can't heal or fix everything, but we can relate and respond to what is making us suffer. I am not particularly focused on a therapy based on "who have you been" as much as "who are you being and who may you be". Therapy is the place where we can still surprise ourselves, where the unexpected is yet to come.
Some of the themes that interest me are:
-general detachment and lack of interest for life
-ageing and illness
- complex trauma
-artists and creativity
Some of these themes are areas in which I also have personal experience. But I am also looking forward to hearing what you need, the uniqueness of your feelings and problems.
