My Approach

We are all human and experience times when nothing seems to be going right. We become stuck, feel lost and confused in our lives, in our relationships and in how we experience the world. We can repeat fixed patterns of behaviour and thought processes that often come from our childhood development or from unresolved trauma.
My work is driven, not by theory, but by a heart-felt connection with you.
Therapy tailored to your needs offers a route to long-lasting change and healing. The way I work allows room for me to meet you as a real person with a non-judgmental attitude towards you in all of your richness and your potential for true joy and growth.
Gestalt Psychotherapy is a humanistic and relational approach which aims to raise and increase your self awareness with the opportunity to make changes from where you are right now.
Together we will explore old patterns and limiting factors with compassionate curiosity. Through the increased awareness from this exploration you can tap into the resources of your unconscious, experiencing a freedom from self-destructive behaviours and self- limiting beliefs. As our work together unfolds, your real core self will come to the surface and you will become the true self that you always were, transforming your daily life.

About Me

My name is Monika. Thank you for considering the brave step to inquire about therapy.
In childhood and early adulthood I often felt deeply misunderstood and wondered what was wrong with me. Throughout my life I have faced significant challenges and developed strategies to overcome personal traumas and losses. I learned to listen attentively to what is said (and sometimes not said.)
Existential questions motivated me to commit to further personal development through integrating regular practice of mindfulness and meditation into my personal life and work. Working holistically (body, mind & spirit) and with integrity and intuition, I focus on the present whilst acknowledging your unique (past and current) circumstances.
Gestalt principles have become a way of being for me - an organic, compassionate and common sense approach to validating emotional and human needs for connection to self, others and the world and embracing change as a natural process from where you are right now.
