In my private practise, I offer a space to explore different life circumstances which have resulted in a sense of uneasiness, discomfort and sometimes stuckness. The nature of the therapeutic work is to create a trustful environment where those difficulties can be explored and made sense of taking into consideration current circumstances, shaping our influences of our families and wider systemic systems.

To be at peace with oneself is to know and meaningfully connect with our emotions. Owning them is courageous and an important step in finding our way back to ourselves and each other.


My interventions are embedded in trauma-informed practice enabling better sense of control over one’s life through techniques developing a sense of grounding and clarity, enabling better coping with stress and a sense of overwhelm, creating a sense of meaning and connection with self and others.


My approach is both eclectic and compassionate encompassing different therapeutic styles incl. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR), Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Systemic and Interpersonal Therapies. My work is strongly focused on a client, based on collaboration in supporting individual with building a life worth living through trustful, reliable and authentic relationship.
