THIS IS WHAT SOME BRAVE PEOPLE SAY ABOUT MY THERAPY PRIVATE PRACTICE:
*I cannot give all the names since they are confidential.
I have been working with Gabriela over video conferencing. Her intuitive sense and deep way of listening has helped me have some breakthroughs and see areas in which I have been emotionally stuck and resistant to healing. She offers tools for me to practice on my own to deepen my own ability to heal. She is kind and compassionate and non-judgemental and really sees the core issue so we can make fast and gentle progress.
“Gabriela is a good therapist with thorough understanding of the challenges that migrants face when entering a new culture. Her true empathy and desire to help gave me the comfort to establish a sincere and open communication from the very beginning. Thanks to her unique method, I was able to address specific issues that I have to tackle as a qualified foreigner in the Norwegian society. She made me aware of the importance of cultural keys, practices and language barriers that can become meaningful skills for a better integration and suitable communication in the host society. In addition, she is an excellent trainer and an eloquent speaker which makes her indispensable in any multicultural environment.”
“Talking to Gabriela was really helpful and taught me how to recenter myself to what matters.”
“When I am coming to Gabriela I feel like a box full of thoughts and emotions, which only fight which each other and don’t have space. After talking to her, I feel light and positive, with all my ideas in order in my box. I leave with a good feeling of self-trust and peace with myself. Being able to speak French with her also helps”.
“Every time I talk to Gabriela, I get back my motivation and my will to think about my challenges with a positive attitude. I get new perspectives about things I think they can be difficult and I manage to walk further on my path. I experience the sessions as being motivated in a constructive way. She is easy to talk to and she takes time to understand. She knows when she has to be supportive and when she needs to be an opponent”.
“She’s very engaged and motivated as a therapist. Because of her humanity, background and a real interest in human beings, it’s easy for her to put herself in other people’s shoes. She’s finding new and positive ways of thinking and loosens up in challenges and brain patterns someone may have got lost in. She sees all of you and encourages you to understand yourself and your own patterns. Together with her, one can find solutions for different thinking and come out of fixed patterns. I can really recommend her as a therapist”.
“I have been participating in a couple of workshops Gabriela had. She has a unique and simple way of communicating complicated subjects where you can feel that she has been doing a lot of research. What I find valuable is the way she is including everyone in the workshop. Each and every one of us gets the chance to speak and we get more out of the discussions and her presentation. At the same time, Gabriela manages to put new light and new perspectives on old convictions we may have. I experience her directly uplifting, humble and loving”.

“I participated in Gabriela’s seminar about “friendly communication and empathy”. As a teacher, it is important to be aware of the power of language and the use of validating communication. Both during the seminar and after, I’ve got the chance to reflect on my own way of communication and the awareness of being precise in whatever I want to communicate. I had an experience of development, learning, and a positive break during my working day”.

“Good communication at work is certainly not a given, and mostly we notice when things go wrong. Gabriela did not just teach these valuable skills, but also made me aware of the tremendous need for good communication. Her seminar was a safe space to share thoughts and learn from others’ experiences. Definitely to be repeated”.
