Individual Psychology, by Alfred Adler, is a depth psychology, in which the person is perceived as a holistic and purposeful individual whose personality is expressed through their social relationships with family, friends and colleagues. The methods of counseling are encouraging, system- and solution-oriented by acknowledging the individual’s strengths and strategies. Through these methods the client can quickly learn how to build on personal resources and use them for personal growth.
My life experience, combined with my education as an Individual Psychological counselor, has helped me to understand clients’ goal directed behavior. Many times, clients are not aware of these unconscious goals. It is important to question which goal one would like to achieve and which behavior patterns one habitually follows. These together form what Alfred Adler calls our 'lifestyle' which develops in the first years of a person´s life.
If you seek a process of change, in whatever area, it is important to discover both your personal goals as well as your unconscious attitudes - obstacles that can stand in your way.
Personally, I always find it a brave act to ask for help or support when you are feeling confused about life. This decision itself is a first step towards positive change, taking life into your own hands to alter and shape the future. You are the only one who can truly make an impact on your own life.

Dealing with Grief
In my life, I´ve already faced many changes. Often, I did not know how to cope with certain challenges and how to find the way to personal growth. These experiences triggered occasional feelings of confusion and powerlessness. The knowledge I have acquired through Individual Psychology has given me the courage to face changes, acknowledge my thoughts and emotional reactions, and find new and creative solutions.
Feelings of confusion and hopelessness can develop at any age and stage in our lives. That's why I offer my counseling services to people of all ages who experience difficulties in finding their way in life.
I would be happy to support you during this challenging time and to welcome you in my counseling practice.
