Gestalt therapist, organizational consultant and coach

I am a Gestalt therapist working in Tallinn (Estonia). I am working with organizations, individual clients and couples from different nationalities who share a common ground in the English language.

I do arrange therapy groups, Gestalt therapy seminars and give lectures. If you are interested in group therapy, I have good news for you! There are upcoming groups for personal growth and for couples in the English language next year.

I am also a writer, columnist and have been editor in chief of a psychology magazine. I have let myself to be lead by my curiosity and passions, the things I do are most exciting for me. When you find that something which truly fascinates you, take it seriously. Choosing your road might not be easy, but where is it written that life should be that! The most important is to find meaning in what you do.

I have made some courageous steps in my life to reach the point where I am. I know that you can change your life too, when you dare to leave “the harbor”!
