Talk with a helpful person about yourself. What could be better?

Therapy and EMDR trauma processing in English, online or in person in Krakow or other locations, depending on travel schedule. For English speaking expats with distress, stress, high performance issues, anxiety, or panic attacks. Therapy helps you feel happier, lighter, freer, empowered, heal low self-esteem and develop healthier beliefs about yourself. You can become the person you want to be. 

Therapy is different from talking with friends or family. I am a trauma therapist. Whatever you have to tell me, it’s ok. I hold a judgment free space for you to express yourself.

And I know how to help you. 

ISSUES

Expat Issues

Adjusting to a new country. Feeling disoriented. Displaced. Homesick. Third culture kids (TCK). Intercultural issues.

Stress

Feeling under pressure, over-worked, exhausted, irritable, high blood pressure.

Anxiety

Worrying too much about too many things, difficulty sleeping, feeling irritable.

Panic Attacks

Out-of-control breathing, spiraling thoughts, feeling like you’re having a heart attack, feeling like you’re going to die.

Trauma / PTSD

Exposure to, or hearing about a life-threatening event; constant stress, discrimination, bullying, attacks on your self-esteem, poverty; nightmares, avoiding situations or triggers or things that remind you of a bad experience, feeling detached, feeling on guard, easily startled, intrusive thoughts of the past, feeling that you will die young.

High Performance

Striving to improve results professionally, in sports, etc.

Relationship Issues

When you’ve moved or you’re under stress, it often takes a toll on your closest relationships.

OUTCOMES

Being an expat becomes easier. The insights that unfold in therapy help you face the challenges of life in a foreign country.

Stress becomes manageable. You can relax and enjoy life.

Anxiety and panic attacks are reduced or even eliminated. You learn skills and stop anxiety from building up and stop attacks.

Trauma and PTSD symptoms resolve. No more nightmares, feeling detached or like this isn’t real. No more being hyper vigilant. 

High performance is enhanced by rehearsing positive outcomes and building positive neural networks that will support your success. You grow in strength and power.
