I grew up with lots of questions, and a life of constant change and challenges – and could well not be anything other than a psychologist. As a psychologist, at a human level, you must be genuinely compassionate. You should also be curious, a reflective listener, self-conscious and daring to drop the idea of perfection. To contribute and be a trusted partner of the journey that my clients get better with themselves and the world around, is not only my greatest satisfaction but brings meaning to my life
Those moments when clients lack of meaningful change to the new lease of life is amazing
