... I was in a new country, had lost my job, was deeply unhappy at home, could not sleep properly, and had reached the point of being unable to talk in a normal conversation without starting to cry. Medications were numbing me but not helping a sustainable recovery. A friend recommended a couple of therapy options and I was immediately convinced by Marielle after speaking with her. She did not offer open-ended therapy but a timely, clear, logical, circumscribed trajectory aimed at identifying and solving my problem in a limited time. It worked very well, Marielle is a very competent professional who objectively and effectively guide her patients to acknowledge their triggers and overcome them. I integrated a few Gestalt therapy sessions in the PTP trajectory because some of the issues we tackled needed a specific, dedicated time, and it was fundamental to do so. With empathy but without getting too close or familiar with her patient, Marielle has guided me to recognise and accept myself for everything I am and to stop measuring myself against what I am not. And it feels like living a new, happier and more conscious life.
