Empathy is the core value of my practice
My way of working encompasses mainly two non-directive approaches that stem from Humanistic Psychology:
Person-Centered approach & Non-Violent Communication.
Sessions are client-led, and I do not offer solutions or come up with answers to client’s problems. As an empathetic helper I accompany clients towards a better understanding and acceptance of themselves. I help them reflect upon and understand their needs, longings, thoughts and emotions through a variety of different skills.
I am firm believer that all the answers, resources and solutions lie within you for what is right for you.
Although I work mostly with non-directive approaches, I can resort to directive life coaching techniques or methods depending on client’s preferences. Since I do not work with cookie-cutter and one-size-fits all coaching approaches, my programs are tailor-made.
Generally, a coaching trajectory with me takes 8 sessions. Duration is flexible depending on client’s needs.
I offer sessions in person or online.
Developed by American psychotherapist Carl Rogers, person-centered is a non-authoritative approach that allows client to lead the conversation so they can discover their own solutions. The helper has the task to encourage and support the client while guiding them through the self-discovery process.
Key qualities of this approach are:
Unconditional Positive Regard: The acceptance of client for what they are no matter what they are going through
Congruence: The helper being an authentic and genuine person towards clients
Empathy: Trying to understand the client’s point of view
Person-centered therapy is about the client's natural self-healing and self-awareness process.
Sometimes referred as compassionate communication, it assumes there is a human need to every action we take. NVC is an empathetic language that help us listen to our deepest needs.
Developed by psychologist Marshall Rosenberg, NVC is simple, yet powerfully transformative.
“Every criticism, judgment, diagnosis, and expression of anger is the tragic expression of an unmet need.”
- Marshall B. Rosenberg
