How sessions work
Sessions are about learning to relate differently to painful thoughts and emotions and doing what works to live a meaningful life.
The content of sessions can 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.
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 currently in the process of becoming certified in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, an approach that integrates awareness of the body in the work we do together.
I provide a safe space to help you find the clarity and clear-headedness to start moving towards what matters to you - to creating a life of meaning and vitality and freedom. We only go back to the past to the extent that it is relevant to what is happening right now.
My style is practical and has been described as gentle yet firm.
In-person sessions take place in central locations in Geneva and Lausanne.
Sessions are one hour long and can be held in either English or French.
As a member of the Swiss Federation of Psychologists (FSP), I am sometimes reimbursed by international / UN insurance / complimentary insurance. Please check directly with your insurance.
Sessions can be changed or canceled without any fees up to 48 hours before they take place.
