Our psychotherapeutic work builds on a client-centred and experiential framework. Within this humanistic approach, the psychotherapeutic relationship is seen as the basis for the therapeutic process. The individual, and his or her way(s) of experiencing and giving meaning to events and feelings, is central to us. It is the client who determines the content of the therapy, while the therapist carefully monitors and stimulates the process. We offer you the necessary support to be able to reflect upon yourself and your situation. By doing so, we attempt to put stalled processes back in motion.
We strive to provide quality psychotherapy.
All psychotherapists working at Kairos are clinical psychologists, have completed a certified and long-term training in Client-Centered Psychotherapy and are continuing further training. Each of us belongs to a professional association, has a large number of years of professional clinical experience and participates on a regular basis in intervision or supervision.
