Engaging on any level with therapy is essentially looking into yourself. It is rewarding, difficult, and one of the bravest things you can do. But you are not alone. I provide a safe and nurturing counselling and psychotherapy service, built on compassion and respect. Humility, and a non-judgmental approach are vital ingredients to my service. I enjoy working with people and helping them to resolve issues caused by overwhelming experiences.

    Before I started my formal education in psychology I was studying esoteric principles and spiritual psychology. Two of the most influential thinkers and writers for me were Thorwald Dethlefsen and Ruediger Dahlke. From their work I have learned about the duality of our holistic world and the psychosomatic presentations of emotional/psychological problems. I incorporate these into my therapeutic work and my everyday life. Lately Prof. Russell Meares and Brené Brown's work has had a huge influence on me.

      10 Questions with Andrea Szasz

      • What led you to choose psychotherapy or counselling as a profession?

      • The term Brave Therapy is in honor of the bravery of my clients; the courage they have shown to change their lives is truly inspirational.

        I’ve been a therapist for 10 years helping hundreds of people to change their lives for the better. I specialize in the treatment of underlying trauma, and been personally involved with people who have suffered intensely. I have undergone my own personal therapy. I understand what it feels like when life is unmanageable. My own experiences have fuelled my passion to find the best treatments possible for my clients.

        The counselling techniques used in Brave Therapy have emerged from 21st Century science, concentrating on fields that explore the connections between body, mind, brain and soul.
