Hello and welcome at Self-Love Clinic

Change is good

Having a philosophical background and nature I keep my mind open to what constantly unfolds around me.

These are some of my values:

  • I believe that we all came to this world with a purpose and message to deliver
  • We are here to learn and we are here to teach
  • No encounter is accidental or useless
  • We can learn from each person that crosses paths with us
  • Nothing is permanent
  • Everything and everyone changes & evolves, constantly and continuously
  • We can learn anything at any age
  • We are the only limit for ourselves
  • And my big favourite “everything is always working out for me”

Whilst studying psychology and psychotherapy I discovered neurolinguistic programming NLP and coaching, at the time when I needed it the most. I came across a practitioner that was using both, the counselling & coaching approaches, which was a real game changer for me.

And he was a real person, with a real past and an authentic present. The connection and the process helped me to move forward so much faster than any other process would have. Today I advocate this model and share it with others. This is not for everybody, but there is no one cure/fix/method that will suit all.

This is how I see you and this is how I will work with you. We meet and we talk and the conversations unravel as we go. We create a connection based on confidentiality, acceptance, reflection and empowering dialog which promotes healing and growth. There is no judgement and no criticism, yet there might be a challenge and developmental feedback. You will do whatever you want with it as the process is all about you.

My clients come from all walks of lives, with all sort of challenges, yet they have something in common. They want to improve their lives. Whether professional, personal or sexual, and this drive makes them extraordinary, because not everyone dares to change. Our relationship is empowering, encouraging and it allows the space for reflection, awareness and reparative growth.

There are no limitations in our lives, unless we decide there are.

Change is good

You are the expert on yourself. There is no other person in this world that knows you better than you do. You decide what you are going to share, work on and improve. Trust, discretion and safe space are imperative parts of the process.

I was once the person who was open to changes and asked for help, perhaps like yourself, I was searching for the right person to work with. I do not have everything sorted. I too am a human being.

Other things you may like to know about me:

  • I was brought up in a very strict religious family, properly ‘sheltered’ and unprepared for what the world had on offer
  • My family was very much ‘patchwork-style’
  • In my late teens and I went through rebellious times and made some bad decisions that have affected my life
  • In my early twenties I still kept making bad decisions that had negative consequences
  • I used to regret my past bad choices and ‘immerse’ in the pool of shame, guilt and self-loathing emotions for years
  • I used to choose the wrong partners and stay in toxic and emotionally or physically abusive relationships
  • I used to suffer from spells of depression and social anxiety
  • I had the tendency to experience ‘high intensity emotions’, some of which caused me a lot of troubles and worries
  • In my late twenties I finally began to see different possibilities and ways of thinking and acting

Despite these, I was driven by the pain to change my life, so here I am

  • I spent 7 years of studying psychology, NLP, coaching and qualified as psychotherapist. I am also a  qualified Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist and Qualified Mother-Daughter Relationship Coach.
  • A few years ago I started regularly practising yoga and meditation, which have been instrumental to my physical healing process
  • Today, I know that we all try to make the best decisions, with the knowledge and resources that are available to us at the time. It is something I gave myself the permission to believe when I was on my journey to heal and accept. Today I know, we either win or learn, failure doesn’t exists. Life is an opportunity to learn and grow
  • I continue creating meaningful and satisfying relationships, friendships and business partnerships and most importantly a positive relationship with Self.
  • I intend to accept and tolerate rather than expect and assume, this is my intention and it is not always that easy to maintain it 😉
  • I now understand why I had certain proclivities and was attracting certain types of people. The awareness of such has made it possible for me to change. This is all possible for those who dare to challenge themselves and look back to move forward
