Learning about change through my training and even more through working together with my clients I have become aware that change happens…

  • ..when you become aware of your current thoughts, emotions and behaviour and the patterns that they are  woven in
  • ..when, with kindness, you allow yourself to fully see that these patterns lead you away from the things in life that really matter to you
  • ..when you allow yourself to face and process any memories, that have glued the old patterns together, instead of avoiding them
  • ..when with kindness and support to yourself you fully commit to establish new patterns that lead you towards what is really important to you

In my work, I have found cognitive behaviour therapy with its newer forms ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy) and schema therapy especially useful in this process. As a framework this also allows integration of mindfulness, IFST (Internal Family System Therapy), EMDR (eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing) and techniques from the hypnotherapeutic tradition.
