Noemi is fluent in Hungarian and is happy to work with people who would feel more comfortable working in this language.
Noemi's way of workingNoemi believes in building a safe, genuine and accepting relationship with every client. Her approach to therapy is mostly psychodynamic, although she sometimes works in a systemic way, particularly when working with families.
Noemi will work with each individual or couple to get to the roots of what is going on. This will often involve the exploration of early childhood experiences to discover how these may have shaped an individual's personality and how they contribute to the present situation.
When working with young people, Noemi takes a psychodynamic and developmental approach and she frequently uses non-verbal techniques such as drawing and elements of art therapy. She believes in the importance of involving the broader environment of the adolescent, e.g. family members, teachers and other important people, to understand the problem/s.
