My Approach

All mental health issues are fundamentally emotional dysregulation, which is a shape of a self-relationship. Re-moulding the relationship with the self (as well as with others & things) is an art, rather than a science like psychiatry and psychology. Numerous philosophers reflected on and taught the art of being-in-the-world (the ‘world’ signifies the self, other people, and things) even before psychotherapy started to be taught as an academic discipline.

I have experience of treating a wide range of mental health issues. Yet, a similarity amongst clients is that, initially, clients talk about their relationships with other people and things (e.g., their bodies/health, traumatic events in which they were involved, etc.) and at this stage I try to help them in terms of dyadic-regulation. Gradually, I shift the centre of gravity towards talking about clients’ self-relationships, to which many of them fail to pay any attention. Helping clients re-establish their self-relationships, I endeavour to strengthen their ability to self-regulate emotions so that they can become emotionally more resilient.
