Psychology

Life can be difficult sometimes, but it can also be beautiful and full of meaning. Effective therapy can support you in clarifying what stands in the way of living a satisfying, fulfilling life and give you the skills to get there. My approach is about developing a toolbox of practical skills with real life applications.

Some of the most common areas we can work on include:

  • Stress and anxiety management
  • Depression
  • Psychological trauma (including old traumatic events that happened in childhood or many years ago)
  • Traumatic events (including assaults, accidents, or witnessing horrific events)
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Sleep difficulties
  • Perfectionism and unrelenting standards that might fuel disappointment, interpersonal difficulties and feelings of failure
  • Procrastination and difficulties with decision-making
  • Overwhelming emotions (guilt, shame, anger, anxiety, panic, despair, emptiness)
  • Low self-esteem
  • Lack of assertiveness, e.g. being a “people pleaser”; difficulties with saying No or asking for support; keeping healthy boundaries
  • Persistent low mood and motivation
  • Compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma for people working in health, human services or defense forces
  • Feeling burnt out, blocked, on autopilot, surviving rather than living
