Working together with the client to uncover the root of a mental problem, analyze how the problem perpetuates itself and then find possibilities for positive change. I consider this a beautiful process. I am goal- and result-oriented and think it is important that a client feels understood and heard. I prefer mutual openness and humour, which in my opinion often benefits the treatment.
