Palliative care | Oncology therapy | Psychological and Spiritual support
As a caregiver and certified oncology body therapist I feel passionate about giving psychological support and helping those people who have cancer and other serious illnesses and stay in hospices, nursing homes, hospitals and their own homes.
As a licensed therapist and certified counselor I provide both online and personal sessions of support for patients and their relatives to improve their psychological, spiritual, emotional, physical, and mental well-being.
Both the patient himself and his family experience great stress, anxiety, insecurity and helplessness which can lead to deep depression and lack of communication.
I offer palliative care to terminally ill people and their relatives providing my time, psychological support, care, and energy.
I support people who feel isolated.
I have had working experience with the physically disabled, the mentally challenged (autism), patients with AIDS, with cardiovascular diseases or chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, Parkinson’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, neurological diseases, dementia, congenital disorders and drug-resistant tuberculosis and any other serious illnesses and those with learning difficulties or impairments.
When a person is in a difficult situation he usually speculates on some essential questions: why this is happening, if there is anything this person believes in now, what makes sense, how his life is changing now, who loves him and is loved by him in spite of anything, etc.
My sessions can find an answer to any spiritual question and give more peace, hope and confidence both to my clients and his family.
My spiritual sessions can consist of:
reading spiritual or religious literature together (Torah, Qur’an, Bible, Bhagavad Gita, etc.), watching sacred videos, discussing holy scripture, poetry, or any inspirational literature, listening to religious and spiritual items of music, praying together or doing meditation and Reiki, talking together about God, visiting Church or Synagogue and visiting support groups.
These important resources can help my patients and their relative to return a feeling of balance instead of depression when their lives have been turned upside down. I can help people to sort out the important questions in order to find meaning, comfort, hope, goodness and community in the midst of such a crisis.
