During sessions, I help a client to discover his or her inner Self. To know their strengths and weaknesses, become acquainted with their aspirations, and get in touch with their unique life force in order to achieve their goals certainly, consequently and successfully.
In my work I use a growth model developed by Virginia Satir – a renowned American family therapist. She believed that every human being is born with a potential that may be fulfilled during that persons existence on this planet. We will focus on your self-esteem and communication patterns with the world and ourselves. Self-esteem, also known as self-worth, is the value that a person attaches to him/herself; an individual’s love and respect for him/herself independent of other people’s viewpoint.
The help I offer is to discover new opportunities and to enjoy the freedom to:
- see and hear what is here, instead of what should be
- say what you feel and think, instead of what you should
- feel what you feel, instead of what you ought
- ask for what you want, instead of always waiting for permission
- take risks on your own behalf, instead of choosing to be only “secure” and not rocking the boat.
By altering behaviour we can strengthen and enhance individual coping skills, as well as strengthen ones ability to make choices so that you confidently LIVE your own LIFE. Our differences are what make us unique, and give us something of which we can be proud.
