About me

💫𝕎𝕖𝕝𝕔𝕠𝕞𝕖 𝕥𝕠 𝕞𝕪 𝕡𝕒𝕘𝕖 💫 I'm Manuela, helping people to feel safe and connected within themselves and to others is my greatest desire. ANXIETY & DEPRESSION are complex emotions and can often stem from past experiences and relationships that have shaped how we perceive ourselves and the world around us. It is important to recognise that they are not weaknesses but natural responses to life's challenges. They are often the result of unmet emotional needs and feelings of lack of support. Through our work together I will help you to identify and address these unmet needs. RELOCATING INTO A NEW CULTURE AND SOCIAL CIRCLE. I grew up in Italy and went through the experience of migrating more than once. I'm based in Berlin and work with people who relocated from different countries and/or belongs to more cultures and face difficulties in their lives. I offer a space which is open and free of judgment. GOING THROUGH LOSS & GRIEF. Grief is a natural response to the pain of losing someone or something we care deeply about. My approach to helping you navigate through these difficult emotions is rooted in compassion, empathy and a deep understanding of the grieving process. IN COUPLES THERAPY THE CLIENT IS THE RELATIONSHIP I am passionate about helping couples work through their relationship issues through the lens of attachment theory. In our therapy sessions I will guide you in understanding and expressing your feelings and help you to recognise and validate those of your partner . I am committed to helping you develop a secure attachment as the foundation for a fulfilling and intimate relationship. Together we will create a path to a more fulfilling and emotionally connected partnership. 💫 CONTACT ME TODAY TO ORGANISE A 35-MINUTES INTRODUCTORY SESSION. 💫

My approach

💫You will define the goals while I take care of the process and methods in a context where you can feel safe and free to express yourself and explore your emotions.💫 My therapeutic approach is deeply rooted in HUMANISTIC PRINCIPLES. 👉 I SEE YOU AS A WHOLE, valuing your feelings, mind, body, and soul. 👉I believe in the power of an ACTIVE SELF where all our actions, both mental and physical, are directed towards providing STRUCTURE, MEANING, and fulfilling our BASIC NEEDS . 👉One of the fundamental driving forces in our lives is the need for self-fulfilment, an inherent DRIVE TO HEAL, GROW & DEVELOP as individuals. 👉LET'S EXPLORE and normalise stuck places whilst DEPATHOLOGISING ISSUES. My therapeutic work is informed by ATTACHMENT THEORY In the sessions I combine elements of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS). 👉We focus on your way of feeling SAFE & CONNECTED within yourself & with others. 👉We work with EMOTIONS because they are central organising elements of our experience; they tell us what we need, help us create meaning, motivate us, communicate with others. 👉We address the inner struggle by giving voice to the different PARTS and understanding their role and needs. 💫 I invite you to contact me for more information and an initial consultation. 💫 💫 VISIT MY HOME PAGE FOR MORE INFOS: https://manuelaluise.com
