Therapy/ Counselling in ENGLISH

 

Don't feel lost in translation! 

Introduction

Life can be extremely challenging.

At times, it might feel so overwhelming and distressing that you may find it hard to be functional in your daily life. At times, it might be even harder if you are facing great challenges and living in a foreign country simultaneously.

There may be times when you wonder why you came to France. Times when you miss members of your family and friends or you are struggling with money problems, feeling very alone and unable to communicate easily with others. There could be any number of things that might be making you feel unhappy or worried and perhaps being in France makes it much harder to cope with.

About Therapy


There are different approaches to counselling and psychotherapy so it is important for you to find a therapist whose philosophy and way of working feels right. It is also important to find someone you feel comfortable working with, so I would encourage you to meet with several therapists if you are in a position to do so.

 

As an integrative practitioner, I do not adhere rigidly to a specific model, or way of working, but rather I adapt and draw on a variety of different approaches to tailor how we work in a way that will be most beneficial to you as an individual.

One of the most important parts of my role is to create an environment where you feel safe enough to explore yourself, your experiences of the world and of others, without fear of judgement or conditions. I will support this by reflecting my understanding of what you think and feel and how you have made sense of the world and your life. This kind of exploration can help you decide what you feel is helpful and productive for you and what could be different if you were to initiate change.

 

I do not think it is my role to tell you what to do. Rather, I believe my job is to help you move to a position where you feel able to take steps to progress towards your goals and to attain fulfilment in your life, your relationships and your work.
