I am trained in many approaches and draw on recent discoveries in the areas of neurobiology, traumatic stress treatment, affect-regulation, self- psychology, psychodynamic psychotherapy, attachment and development theory. I adapt theory and methods to fit the needs of the client and specifics of the situation he/she wants help with. My approach is informed by the person before me rather than a specific technique.
Clients who had a difficult start in life and or a history of childhood trauma. Insecure attachment problems, not feeling seen, welcome or understood, loss of a parent, divorce, operations, accidents, physical and/or sexual abuse. This can give rise to the following problems: traumatic stress, identity problems, anxiety, panic, lack of trust, anger problems; rage or else inability to feel anger, feelings of helplessness, conflicts at work, dissociation, depression, loneliness, feelings of emptiness, eating problems, mood swings, emotional crisis, chronic stress, burn out, fear of abandonment, fear of commitment, relationship problems, problems with intimacy, parenting problems.
I also work with transference reactions and our relationship. I use a therapeutic approach that explores how feelings, thoughts and behaviours relate to early life experiences and how unconscious and conscious motivations affect our beliefs and behaviours.
