English Speaking Therapist in Berlin
As a Professional Counselor, I offer individual Therapy to help clients:
Become more accepting of who they are.
Develop coping skills.
Make meaningful changes.
I offer emotional support and understanding that is given in an honest, non-judgmental and empathic way.
During sessions I take a compassionate approach, never pushing if I sense that you are uncomfortable. Rather my way of working would be to acknowledge that uncomfortable feeling, in the moment. Think of it as working in 'real-time' This style of Counseling can allow self-awareness to be gained, and for wounds to be healed.
I find it beneficial to work with descriptions and metaphors, as these are great tools that can be used to better understand what is going on for you. This method works particularly well, as sometimes it can be hard to express certain thoughts or feelings; so rather than searching for something that may have escaped you, we can use a more creative approach to understand your ways of thinking and feeling.
Also, Counseling isn't always about the negative, meaning its important for us to celebrate the positives! Smiles and happiness are an important part of the Therapeutic relationship. They allow us to explore two different ends of the spectrum, and to see what else is going on in your life ( as nothing is black and white! )
Communication is key, so it is important that we can find a way of sharing that works for you. This means taking the time to check-in and talk about what is working and what we can improve on; Therapy sessions are always guided by you and your best interests.
Lastly, it is important to keep in mind that Counseling can be an emotional roller-coaster; sometimes you will feel better, at other times you may feel bruised and exhausted from it. This is all part of the process. It can be a tough journey but it is one that you have the strength to face, even if at times it all feels too much.
As a qualified counselor, I have over 7 years of experience and am registered with The British Association For Counselling And Psychotherapy ( registered member # 383832 ).
At the heart of my Counseling practice is the understanding that someone's struggle is deeply personal; it will never be the same for anyone else. It is working with these unique struggles that I find such a rewarding process, as during sessions I am able to experience first hand my clients finding the strength and resilience needed to face their issues.
My role as your Therapist is to be there alongside you, helping to understand and explore, without analysing or judging you. I strive to achieve this by being genuine and honest, owning my thoughts and feelings when I share them.
