My therapy approach is an integrated approach. It is mainly based on: Schema Focus Therapy (SFT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). My method is also influenced by psychodynamic therapy, humanistic (or person-centered) therapy and body-based (psychomotor) treatment.
It means, understanding your history and how it relates to you now is important; taking actions and moving forward to the future is also important. Healing is possible during an empathic environment, and a healthier version of yourself will be built and help you move forward in the rest of your life.
During the session, we talk, feel (emotion and somatic feeling), imagining. Sometimes we do breathing exercises or write exercise. If you have problem feeling, I encourage you to image a scene or to feel your body sensation or your movement.
My peers and clients described my helping styles being “deep listening and understanding”, “very soothing”, “very respecting”, “heartfelt”, “accepting”.
