Tatjana Kecman MA, RP
Psychotherapy + Counselling
I am passionate, experienced and highly skilled in guiding clients to discover and experience their authentic selves. In the same time, I hold a safe space for unfolding and exploring unavoidable obstacles, mostly created by our beliefs. Held beliefs or limiting thoughts that can appear as anxiety, depression or other psychological/emotional difficulties can be a guiding light on your way back to finding your true essence. These core parts of your being may remain untouched as you grow, and are waiting to be found and re-connected. When you connect on a deeper level with your self, your purpose, gifts, and talents show up with their full potential, bringing forth a liberating flow. You feel free from what has been holding you back.
I work with adult individuals and couples using various strategies and techniques such as CBT, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt Therapy, Psychodrama, ADIEWA, and Transpersonal Therapy. With experience in schools and child psychology, I offer parenting skills and enhancement sessions for parents who are facing challenges raising their children.
My approach focuses on empowering clients in their quest to know and free themselves on a deeper level, to live more meaningful and purposeful lives, to overcome a middle age or other forms of crisis, traumatic experiences, recreating self-image and building self-confidence while finding joy, grace and pure love for life as an inherent part of our true nature.
