"I believe that each person is unique and that the people are doing the best they can. In therapy, I focus on clients directly reliving the events, here and now (instead of simply narrating them), by which we raise the client\'s awareness on what and how he/she is doing to him/herself. Many experiments are used during the therapy (playing the roles, dialogue, direct expression, overreacting, pointing out things, working on body and breathing, visualization, metaphors, phantasies, stories, dreams...) which raise the client\'s awareness on what he/she is doing and how he/she is doing it. This results in awareness and acceptance of oneself, better knowledge of one\'s environment, in taking the responsibility for one\'s own choices and improving communication skills. My approach is an educative one, because my clients are given the opportunity to learn more about what is happening to them".
