I have more than 15 years of experience working as a counselor and therapist and 30 years of practice in mindfulness and I am always strengthening my understanding of human relationships, the mind and the body.
In my sessions, my customers will learn to know themselves deeply, discovering their needs through voice dialogue techniques, and Enneagram tools. They will practice mindfulness skills to deal with trauma and difficulties in life.
They will learn how to communicate to get their needs met through non-violent communication techniques, how to take care of themselves and their relationships, how to deal with stress, anxiety, grief, depression and anger with Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy( MBCT) and Mindful-Based Stress Reduction ( MBSR).
Sharing a trusting, safe, supporting, respectful, caring, compassionate and honest space for my clients. Being able to help them to discover the tools they need to deal with and solve their issues. Being fully there for them. Integrating my tools and techniques to match my customers’ needs. Knowing they can deal with their issues better, that their needs are met, that they walk out of my sessions smiling, relaxed and confident. Having my clients come back to me to share their progress or failure and seeing that they are aware, kind with themse and willing to try again.
The counselor (Kess) is patient and kind. She listens with caring attention and offers gentle guidance that is grounded in years of experience.
I introduce mindfulness practice immediately and use it in every session to help my customers get in touch with themselves.
I fully listen and gently ask questions to learn more about the client’s wishes and needs and to help them gain clarity themselves.
Depending on the client’s personality, preferences and needs, I use MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) and MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) or any of a wide variety of other tools and techniques to facilitate their discovery process.
Gradually, the client identifies specific issues they wish to address and I give them exercises to try in their daily life, so they can mindfully self-observe and learn through practice.
Each client is unique. At all times, I let them set the pace and have a say in how they would like to proceed (but I will encourage them to push beyond their comfort zone if they feel ready).
