Those who want to build confidence:
Do you have tendency to take care of others at the expense of your own mental and emotional health? You’ve already exhausted their own resources, and feel overwhelmed and stuck in finding the right solution. Maybe you constantly doubt yourself and are your own harshest critic.
Together I can help you explore your negative self-talk and replace it with more positive and more realistic one. I can support you to identify your strengths and values, build healthier boundaries, repair trust and develop confidence in relation to others. As a result, you can get more clarity of who you are and what you want. You can become confident, start feeling more compassion for yourself, and build unconditional self-love for yourself. You may begin to feel more at peace and more respected by others.
There is a vast of information out there these days, however knowing is not enough. Our brain is very protective, counselling helps us to go the root cause of a problem and make corrections in our core belief system, which cannot be achieved by reading and making ourselves 'talking more positively'.
Those who been in a car accident
I work with people who have been involved in car accident and come to counselling with symptoms of anxiety, depression or fear of driving as a result of the accident. OEI (Observed Experiential Integration) therapy is a very effective approach to work with those symptoms of distress.
You can’t change what happened, but you can learn not to react to your memories. Many of my clients report a significant reduction of intense feelings, including fears of driving, and feel noticeable relief from negative feelings due to a traumatic event.
Those who experienced trauma or abuse in their past
If you’ve experienced an extremely stressful or disturbing event in your childhood that’s left you feeling helpless and emotionally out of control you may have been traumatized. If you didn’t have a caring reliable adult who provided support after the event, explained what happened and calmed you down, you might still hold that unprocessed trauma.
Your strong emotions to triggers are the clue to your past. Your brain might have shut down the painful memories and you might not even remember what happened. If you feel that something is holding your back or if upsetting emotions and anxiety are still showing up in your present, you need to do some healing. It's not about going back in memories and all the details of your painful experience. I can help you find more compassion for yourself, let go of unhealthy guilt and shame, correct the irrational beliefs about the event and finally move forward with your life.

I know life has the rough edges, I have had my share of painful experiences but I found the way to move from ‘distress’ to ‘happiness’, from ‘codependency’ to ‘interdependency’, from ‘self-hate’ to ‘self-compassion’. My own journey towards healing the past motivates me to support other women to do the same, so they can be more present, authentic, and deeply connected in their relationships.
