Free Therapy/Coaching Session
When people hear the word “therapy”, they are getting a bit scared. It is a TABU subject, as if emotional and mental health do not exist. The first reaction one usually has is “I am fine. I don’t need therapy. Other people have it worse than me”, which is called “denial” in technical terms. "Coaching", on the other hand, is more socialy accepted. You can read about the differences between them here.
That is an ok attitude. Speaking with family and friends is great. These people are precious. At the same time, they have their own issues and their own emotions to deal with when they hear your problems. Most likely, their advice will come with good intentions; yet, they are not in your shoes, and it may not help you as intended.
I am offering the possibility of trying therapy/coaching for free. It may be that you have seen a therapist before, so you know the process. Perhaps you have seen several therapists. You may have noticed that each therapist has a personal way of dealing with people in your situation.
If you’ve been to therapy and you didn’t like it, it’s ok. It's not for everybody.
For people who realize that they need this kind of help is good if they try several therapists/psychologists until they find one, they resonate with.
When they found that person, it will take six to eight or ten sessions to feel progress. Unfortunately, the issues one is confronting with, are not going to be fixed overnight. The therapist is a good support through the process, with knowledge, compassion, guidelines, and questions, while they are doing the job. Nobody can fix other people but themselves.
If you do not want to be fixed, or if you’re not willing to put in the work, nobody can do that for you. Nobody else can feel your feelings or think your thoughts for you.
Working with yourself is not like working with pottery, or cooking, or carpentry, where you can “see” or “touch” or “taste” the progress. When you work with yourself, you need to feel it in your daily life, in the time between therapy sessions. You feel it in the behavior patterns you have towards yourself and others.
I give you the opportunity to try one session for free, and see if there is something you would like to experiment with in the future.

Here is what some of the people I worked with say:
"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."
"I've had the pleasure of working with Gabriela over the past year.
Not only was she an empathetic communicator who often relayed my feelings clearer than I could express them, but more importantly, she gave me the tools and gentle pushes to better understand myself at my own pace.
Her skill set is heightened by her experience dealing with the issues most foreigners face when integrating with the culture of their new home. Her advice on that front was also quite valuable to help alleviate lingering feelings".
“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.”
“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”.
