Life is not always easy…

Psychotherapy can help you to gain insight into the dynamics that influence your relationship to yourself and to others. The more aware you are of your motives, feelings, thoughts, actions and perceptions, the more you can control your live and the less you get caught up in old patterns that do not work any more. Psychotherapy offers the context in which you find the opportunity, and hopefully the courage, to do exactly that, to experience your thoughts and feelings more clearly than ever before and to allow yourself new ways to accurately articulate your experiences.

Gestalt Therapy can help you to become aware of the present moment, of what you are doing, how you are doing it, and how you can change yourself. At the same time, Gestalt Therapy provides you with the opportunity to learn to accept and value yourself more fully while taking responsibility for your feelings and actions.

Sandplay Therapy is a unique and playful technique that provides a safe and respectful environment to move through deep issues and discover new ways of being in the world.
