How sessions work
I provide a safe space to help you find the clarity to move towards what matters to you - to creating a life of meaning and vitality.
The content of sessions will vary depending on your needs. Sessions may be more talk-focused or goal-focused or we might practise new skills for coping more effectively with painful thoughts, emotions or situations. We only go back to the past to the extent that it is relevant to what is happening right now.
I use mostly Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), evidence-based approaches that have been shown to effectively help people change.
I am also certified in Level 1 of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, an approach that integrates awareness of the body and nervous system in the work we do together.
My style is practical and has been described as gentle yet firm.
I work with adults (22+) and aim to constantly ensure I am the right fit for you. If I feel you could benefit from working with someone else, I will help you find the appropriate support.
In-person sessions take place at Lausanne Therapy Space in central Lausanne. Online sessions can take place via Zoom or Skype, depending on your preference.
Sessions are one hour long and can be held in either English or French. The cost per session is 140 CHF.
As a member of the Swiss Federation of Psychologists (FSP), I am sometimes reimbursed by Swiss complimentary insurance / international or UN insurance. Please check directly with your insurance.
Sessions can be changed or canceled without any fees up to 48 hours before they take place.
Please note that I am currently not taking on new clients but would be happy to recommend other therapists in Geneva or Lausanne or to put you on a waiting list.
