some kind of pain. Emotional, psychological, relational or
In a secure, confidential space I provide people with a
non-judgemental relationship where change can be fostered in the
direction people wish for themselves which leads to a more
Therefore, in the work together the emphasis is placed on exploring
how you do the things you do rather than on why you are do them to
promote the desired change. Part of this "how of things" is what we
feel when we do things. So I keep the focus on sensorial experience
because as recent neuroscience research shows this is a key to
transforming being stuck in emotional or psychological pain into
meaningful life change.
I also work in a
solution-orientated way. That means I help people identify what
works in their lives and where they are trying to get to. Immediate

I began my psychotherapist training in 1994 and have been committed

trained in several different modalities – Biodynamics, Biosynthesis,
Systemic Therapy, Neurolinguistic Programming, Solution-orientated
Therapy, Eriksonian Hypnosis, Trauma Therapy, Narrative therapy –
all of which encompass, in different ways, the importance of
sensorial experience to successful psychotherapy work.
