COUNSELING
 

“Midway in the journey of our life, I came to myself in a dark wood,

for the straight way was lost”

                                                                           Dante Alighieri, The Inferno

Life is a creative process, a continuous path from the unknown to manifestation, from darkness to light, from the first to the last breath. Each life is a unique journey and each person holds unique wisdom. To live up to our potential, To live fully, we need to get acquainted with who we truly are and often this discovering takes time and practice to set aside who we have been taught to think we should be.

 

A space of learning and healing

Inspired by mindfulness practice and humanistic approaches, within my practice I create a safe space to experience oneself in a direct way. Through deep listening of what is happening in the here and now, individual sensations, thoughts, emotions, and needs are seen and acknowledged. Experiencing the moment in a direct way supports us in creating a more welcoming relationship with ourselves, discovering a new sense of freedom and becoming all that we are.

 

THE SESSIONS

In my one on one sessions we co-create a space of learning where together we take a look at what is happening in the now. The first step of each session would be to arrive in the presence of the given moment itself. Through subtle listening, to the breath, to the body, mind and heart, I guide through and work with all that comes up.
 
Within the sessions we acknowledge established thought patterns and we seek to get in touch with deeper parts of ourselves with acceptance and non-judgment. When we feel stuck and need support whilst going through difficulty and change, this process supports us in our creative processes and connects us with our intuition and knowledge.
Sessions are held in English and in Hebrew.
Location: Prenzlauer Berg, Berlin and Potsdam
And sessions through Skype.
 

“Learned we may be with another man’s learning, we can only be

wise with wisdom of our own”

                                                                                 Michel De Montaigne

ABOUT

 

“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be…

I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.”  

                                                                                Carl R. Rogers

I was fortunate to have been able to study many disciplines and benefit from their diversity, all of them are the inspirational base of my work and practice. I have a B.A. in Political Science, Far East Studies, Philosophy and Social Work (B.S.W) and have a 3 years Integrative Psychotherapy training. My holistic view has brought me to explore body-mind work through my certified Shiatsu therapy studies, 200 hour Yoga Alliance Teacher training and Mindfulness Stress reduction teacher’s training (TTR1). And finally my passion for dance and movement has brought me to experience the magic of Butoh Dance. I have 17 years of therapeutic experience working with clients with a wide range of social, physical and emotional distress in the public and private sectors. The last years I have been engaged in researching, initiation and developing projects focused on themes of gender, the dynamics of power and how we can create spaces where trust and social responsibility can be practiced.
I see life as a path of wonder, with stepping stones made of inspiring words we read and hear, and challenges we face.  These encounters make us recognize and acknowledge our power serving us a teacher through which we are able to grow.
