What a (wo)man can be, (s)he must be. This need we call self-actualisation. Abraham Maslow
Aernout Zevenbergen – English-speaking Psychologist in Nyon, Vaud
I believe that the client is the expert of his or her own life. Your skills, desires and needs are the starting point for our interaction during counselling. My training and experience as counselling psychologist are your guarantee that our work together will lead to solutions, healing and growth. "What does it mean to be a (wo)man, today? What is the longing of my soul? How can I be true to myself, and those near and dear to me? How can I be a force of positivity in the life of my community, my country, and our world?" If any of the above questions resonate with you, or if you have other questions you would like to discuss with me, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me... Psyche originally meant "soul" and therapeia meant "care" - psychotherapy therefore means "care for the soul". And that is exactly what I believe lies at the heart of my counselling and coaching: to help clients find ways of improving their own care for their own souls.
Who we are and what we do are influenced by the stories that we tell about ourselves.David Denborough
Personal Growth: An Inspiring Adventure
Life has a habit of throwing up issues and hurdles - that is to be expected. Apart from moments of joy and contentment, we also face losses, disappointments, ruptures and cracks. But, as Leonard Cohen sang: "There's a crack in everything; that's how the light gets in." Cracks lead to self-exploration and that in itself is an adventure; sometimes arduous. I can offer guidance, inspiration and a mirror so you can walk the path you choose to walk. I offer two types of engagement: face-to-face counselling in either Mies or Coinsins or otherwise through confidential and secure on-line interactions.
The shoe that fits one person pinches another; there is no recipe for living that suits all cases.
