About Me

Meet me!
Hi there,
I am Gisela, but everyone I hold dear calls me G. After extensive years of experience in the field of Psychotherapy, I have decided to create this Social Project specifically to aid Breakup Recovery.

In my experience, I am privileged to have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, and as much as I am in the position of ‘helper’ I too start a new journey with my clients, now members; a journey where I am the ‘teacher’ as much as the ‘student’. I am fascinated with humans’ capabilities and that alone never ceases to amaze me!

I hold studies and qualifications in BSc Psychology Major in Counselling, Behavioural Medicine with emphasis on Motivational interviewing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Coaching & Mentoring, Mindfulness, all at university level.
 
After being diagnosed with a rare neurological condition, it has become very difficult to cope with providing regular consultations and regular workshops, but I also couldn’t cope with stop working altogether. So I created this project where I share the best I can, some of the knowledge I have acquired throughout the years, and adapted techniques to suit this particular life event – Breakups. Last, but not least, you can access it free of charge!
 
I have dealt with many types of suffering in my professional field as well as in my personal life, and I have always noticed a lack of directed or specialised help for people going through breakups. Maybe because I too went through some real difficult times in my life where I felt I had nowhere / no one to turn to… I went through some really tough breakups in the past and I have shared one of my breakup experiences in #happyafteryou page and you too can share your story, if you feel comfortable doing so. 
 
I have learned very important lessons from my personal and professional experience with breakups, including our incredible ability, sometimes hidden ability to overcome obstacles. More importantly, that these abilities and skills can be further developed and together with some essential tools we can survive any major setback.
 
 
Today I am happily married, doing what I love and if I was already strong, the breakups in my life definitely made me stronger – more resilient, made me less judgemental, more empathetic and compassionate towards myself and others.
 
We all go through tough times and some experiences can be quite detrimental to our general well-being, but as devastating as they can be, they can also carry the potential for growth, enlightenment and even opportunity for betterment.
 
Even though breakups are hard, really hard, the end of a chapter also represents the beginning of a new one – with exciting new possibilities!
 
Thank you for reading.
 
Wishing you a kind recovery.
 
Yours,
G
