"For me, the psychotherapeutic process is a journey of growth and self-discovery, made in the context of a safe, nurturing and, above all, respectful relationship.
The therapeutic relationship opens and contains a safe space for joint exploration of our different dimensions - cognitive, bodily, emotional, spiritual - in a search for better, and more integrated, mental health.
Being a therapist is, for me, accompanying each person in this discovery of themselves, promoting gentle curiosity and, above all, self-acceptance and self-compassion - qualities that serve as "fertilizer" for the unfolding of our potential and solutions for our difficulties."
