Two important needs of people are:
- To connect with others and be appreciated
- To be able to be yourself and to develop your own possibilities
How to do that is different for every person. In individual therapy I mainly use techniques from EFIT (Emotionally Focused Therapy for Individuals). This therapy assumes that emotions are important because they give direction to our behavior. Our natural emotional capacity can be disturbed by a variety of reasons. Individual therapy can teach you to reflect on your emotions, to recognize them, to use them and to restructure them. In this way you will learn to recognize your deeper desires and needs and to find corresponding actions that are helpful and constructive.
