Eva MaiwaldIntegrative psychologist
Getting to the centre of it all: Finding that spot where things feel stuck and change seems so difficult is the first big step in therapy. And then it’s about finding out together how to soften that spot and help change to happen.
As a broadly trained and experienced clinical psychologist I have acquired quite a large toolbox to choose from: CBT, EMDR, EFT, ACT, DBT, Schema Therapy, and more. I have worked in different settings with very different client groups. In the end, what I feel is making the difference, is a really good mutual understanding of what’s going on and working as a team with my client.
I enjoy working with clients who feel they are experiencing a lot of emotions, or they struggle with certain emotions, such as anger, embitterment, shame, sadness, loneliness. Or clients who feel numb and out of touch with their feelings. Many of my clients have experienced trauma, some self-harm or have other unhealthy ways of dealing with their feelings, many want to improve their relationships and create a calm, safe place for themselves.
My approach is emotion-focused, trauma- informed, mid-length (15-25 sessions) and experiential (that means a lot is actually happening during a session, rather than just talking about stuff).
I work with individuals and couples.
