As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world… as in being able to remake ourselves. – Mahatma Gandhi
Counselling is helpful when life presents you with difficulties that seem insurmontable or when something has happened that gives suffering. It is then useful to speak with someone that can listen without judgement and can offer empathy. A counsellor supports you in a difficult situation, is impartial and ethically bound to secrecy and helps in processing feelings at your own pace and find back your balance. Typically, I can help you with issues relating to self-esteem, communication, self-motivation, procrastination, overcoming stress, social integration, relating to and communicating with people of different cultures.
If you have a specific goal, such as a difficult decision or some aspect of your life that you would like to change, I can help you to define it precisely and make it achievable. I believe that everyone is able to change and improve but also that not always we can do that alone. I see my role as that of a facilitator, an impartial and confidential helping hand to assist you in making these changes.
