Who I am

I am a psychologist and Gestalt therapist. As a therapist, a woman and a person I am occupied with re-discovering vitality, spontaneity and curiosity. And also with accepting fatigue, withdrawal or anxiety if this is what we feel. I believe that all these polarities are natural parts of our life, all colours and qualities have their right to exist at certain times. I aim to support this acceptance in my clients as well.

I offer no quick fixes but insightful learning journeys. The main power of being in therapy with me is I think to receive warmth and attention without judgement. We create time and space for slowing down to fully experience and to reflect on what is happening – so that you can have more options to choose from, not just the well known routine reactions that bring moderate fulfillment.

I like freedom, colourfulness and honest talk.


What I do

I work with adults in individual, couple and group setting, in English and Hungarian languages.
I also work online with individual clients via video calls.

About my professional background

About Gestalt

gestalt Gestalt is a psychotherapeutic approach, with its roots dating back to the first half of the 20th century, to the work of Fritz and Laura Perls.
It is an experience- and experiment-focused method: we not only talk about issues in therapy but try out new ways of being in the world.
We respect the well-known personal strategies and also promote exploring new ones.
We are equally interested in thoughts, feelings and the bodily experience of the client as a whole person.
In Gestalt we deal with the present and future instead of going back to past, we prefer awareness instead of quick solutions, we rather explore than analyze.
We believe we only exist in relationship with others.
