About Me

“You can’t go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending.” (C. S. Lewis) I believe therapy not only offers a space for processing confused, difficult or painful feelings but also creates an opportunity for self-discovery and self-development. I offer a safe and compassionate space, where you can explore things you may never have talked about before.

Therapeutic Approach

“Every person must choose how much truth he can stand” (Irvin D. Yalom) Online, By Phone, Face-to-Face, Walk and Talk My priority is to provide a confidential, empathic and accepting atmosphere in which you are free to question, reflect upon and express your true and unique self. Through a relationship built on trust, we work together to find your own way in the maze of life. I offer an open, supportive and healing space to process your feelings and strengthen your identity. Together we explore your experiences and the way these shape the person you are and wish to become. In our work together I offer you the benefit of creative techniques, such as ‘dreamwork’, ‘chair work’, ‘therapeutic journaling’ and using ‘images and symbols’. Being an Integrative Therapist means that I can utilise my understanding of the Psychodynamic, Humanistic and CBT approaches. However, my specific approach is always tailored to my client’s therapeutic needs as I recognise that each person is unique with a multitude of distinct experiences and feelings. I can offer therapy in Hungarian as well as in English, if you would rather speak in your native language. I am an LGBTQ-affirmative therapist.

Background

"Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you." (Jean-Paul Sartre) I am a qualified Integrative Therapist and an accredited registered member of the National Counselling Society and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have experience in offering therapy online, by phone and in person. I provide both time-limited and open-ended therapy for adults. Besides working as a private practitioner, I also volunteer for an NHS-based counselling service. Areas I have worked in include but are not limited to: - anger and conflict management - coping with anxiety and panic attacks - bereavement, grief and loss - childhood experiences and trauma - depression, low moods and suicidal thoughts - relationship challenges, infidelity and break-up - identity crisis and questioning a sense of self - aspects of LGBTQ and gender and sex diversity - increasing self-awareness and self-esteem - dreaming and nightmares - workplace difficulties ​I am especially interested in providing support for identity and personality issues.  Unable to express or accept your true identity may generate a myriad of unwanted feelings such as guilt, low self-esteem or anger. Being in therapy helps you to uncover your strengths and develop new skills that will allow you to deal with the challenges that arise in life.
