Gestalttherapy in Zurich
Even if it seems that you are having a really bad time now.
Because when you are going to visit a psychologist, it means that you are finally ready to change something. And the first step is already done - changes have begun. Our task now is to continue this process and to give it a new development.

In my opinion, coming to a psychologist - is a great way to return to a feeling of a solid ground beneath your feet, a way to be supported, to see the situation from a new point of view and to feel confidence and joyfulness in your life.
IF YOU'RE HERE IT MEANS YOUR LIFE HAS ALREADY STARTED TO CHANGE TO THE BEST
I work as a psychologist more than 15 years.
