I began therapy with Monika around the time of the COVID outbreak. I had just turned 60 and can honestly say my life was in such a mess that I had no idea it was even a mess. I thought everybody was driven by circumstances, anger, hurt and misplaced duty: furthermore I thought being driven like this was "natural". I had no idea that the roots of my behavior, emotions and understanding could be gently uncovered and explored. I never dreamed that I could call my life my own. I never knew I could rediscover the joy that is every person's birthright, or take control of my own life - by losing my fear of what others thought and recognizing and addressing my repetitive patterns. About a month ago, I left Monika's and felt the sun on my neck and the warm breeze on my face. I felt something completely new to me...GRATITUDE. I was no longer condemned to "suffer my life". Thank you Monika, I owe you much in this process of re-birth. J.D.
_‘I worked together with Monika for half a year in order to gain a deeper knowledge of myself and to solve problems communicating at work. She is empathetic, thorough and well-prepared – three things I could characterize her work. I can recommend her to all those who are about to confront their life's difficulties in therapy.’ K.K
'Before meeting Monika, I had undergone therapy for over 7 years and yet I continued to agonize over my past pains wrought with sexual, physical and emotional abuse. In a space of 13 months, Monika assisted me to confront my past traumas in a safe and loving environment, allowing me to feel the anger, fear and sadness so long denied or suppressed. Fully embracing my past allowed me to recognize my inner child, grow my adult self and tune in with the present. As a result I find myself naturally more genuine in my relationship with my family, friends and colleagues, and have set on the path to a new career that I’m passionate about. I’m finally in charge of my own life!' Khaled K
"I heard about Monika just at the right time when I decided to ask for professional help. I needed to find answers to certain questions about myself. She helped me to work on my selfconfidence and we found explanation to situations that I felt confused about during that period of my life. We analysed together these situations and I manged to better understand my reactions and it helped me to change my approach to them and to see clearer. Monika always asked me the right questions so that I could search for the right answers inside me. I still often think of our sessions and I remember the thoughts and lessons that I learned and they still serve me as guidance. T.S."
'I worked with her for almost 2 years. First, I recognized I had never said to someone that ''that hurt me''. I had always just defended myself with anger and power. She helped me find the light inside me, and to discover that I have so much love inside me; in this process I have discovered my Self again .' R.A.K.
"The outcome of the 5 months long training with Monika was impressive. Monika's sentences from the sessions come up automatically in my everyday life and due to them problematic situations became easy to be solved. The empathy I got from her abolished the unsatisfied emotional needs which had prevented me from experiencing things or people without judgement. Telling my feelings and needs without fear or shame became natural and I consider the world a safer place now." N Cs
I began my work with Monika 2 years ago, following a traumatic experience. We explored what had happened and how I felt about it; my profound sadness, fear and anxiety, as well as the already previously existing guilt, shame and perception of inadequacy. As we dug deeper, gradually I learned how to connect with my feelings, how to be aware where in my body they are located, how to acknowledge them and - as Monika likes to say - give them space (I love that expression). With Monika I achieved my own personal goals that I had long before considered not fully reachable in my lifetime due to the reasons deeply rooted in my unfortunate childhood. With Monika the goals turned out to be attainable to their full extent. I accept myself, I am at ease with who I am, I feel the feelings instead of ignoring and being afraid of them. Nowadays I am confident and content, at peace. I am creative, cheerful, open and spontaneous (in the past I was not much of any of these things). I have all the instruments - and the know-how - to put things in the perspective of maturity and wisdom, to solve difficult situations and nurture healthy relationships. Thank you, Monika! Our journey has been a wonderful experience of quantum leaps and miracles in my personal growth! Two years later I am a different person - in a way in which I had always wanted to be. 2018
