" Dear Reader,
My name is Ven and over the years as a helping professional I realized that people care less about clever language and elaborate techniques and more about receiving sincere love and compassion, living hope and courage, honest feedback, and new perspectives.
My graduate training in psychology and also psychotherapy, and my experience working on two continents with culturally diverse populations, in many settings, add more tools and approaches to answer the unique needs of my clients. However, what proved to help the most is having the mutual trust to explore and work on intimate, sometimes painful topics, step-by-step. Together, we invite your strengths and natural wisdom to take the steering wheel of your life, letting go of the grasp of your fears and limiting self-beliefs. Together, we also help you chose and create new habits towards better ways of being.
I will act as a co-pilot with a map on your journey, assisting you to navigate through different landscapes: the wilderness of the outside world and its daily demands for attention, and also the wilderness of your emotional realm within, that often overwhelm and detour us from goals and happiness.
You are the Captain that makes the decision on the course, handle the sails, and at times are sweating on the oars. The hard work always pays at the end and your happiness is worth the effort!
Please feel free to reach out, if you want me on board.
