Expat Therapy for Individuals and Couples

For the last eight years I've lived as an expat. I do psychotherapy with expat clients and am passionate to support their development - individually and in relationships. My work is solution-oriented, and to this end I integrate a deep understanding of my clients' unconscious.

 

I pragmatically draw elements from CBT, Depth Psychology, Meditation, Hypnotherapy, and Systemic Psychology. In addition I am a Buddhist scholar, meditator, and generally fascinated by the potential of the human mind.

Testimonials

 

"Finding myself lost in a transitional phase of life, I was looking for a professional to talk to. I looked for someone with an evidence based approach but also open for a more existential perspective. In Gabriel Ellis I found the right person: a very attentive listener, both empathic and to the point, who could really meet me where I was at the time, and help me chart a way forward."  (Thomas, 41, university teacher)

„As my professional and personal life was approaching a key transition period I looked for support on this journey and found it with Gabriel. Over the past few months Gabriel’s support was crucial in navigating through that difficult time. Sessions with Gabriel allowed me to take the necessary time and reflect in a safe-space on the key issues we identified at the beginning of the therapy.“  (Michael)

„I contacted Gabriel in a very complicated moment of my life, especially in my marriage. His clear, pragmatic vision of the situation helped me to make sense of what was going on, and seeing the crisis as an opportunity to grow. I switched from being a victim of the circumstances to a more empowered role: I gained economic independence through opening my company, I changed my professional profile, but also I managed to put my marriage in a much healthier place. All of this wouldn't had been possible without Gabriel's advice.”  (Sofia)

"Arriving to a new country, Gabriel proved to be an excellent family counsellor. We all went through personal challenges during this time. With two third-culture teenagers in a country where we did not speak the local language, it was enormously helpful to have a counsellor to speak with as we experienced the various ups and downs of the transition. Away from friends and family, Gabriel was an indispensable resource. He is a highly professional, intuitive guide who helped smooth the path of communication in our family."  (Jessica)

"I’ve been working with Gabriel in order to deal with a few personal issues (my mother, relationship, health). In my work with him I have learnt through various exercises and techniques to calm down my aggression & self destructive habits. These days I see him mostly as a life coach (we work over Skype). He helps me identify what’s important to me, my desires, my challenges so I don’t look back and  regret what I did or didn't do. How to be less fearful and more empowered to live my true self. I’ve been with few therapists, but Gabriel has so far been awesome in helping me through some of the toughest challenges in my life. I’d recommend him to anyone who is seeking a healthy mental state and looking to grow into who they want to be."  (Ali, Finance & Technology)

"Medicated for years and paralysed with fear, I hobbled along through life with a secret list of problems that weighed heavily and made a meaningful future seem out of reach. With his Zen-like demeanour, Gabriel was able to provide a warm and non-judgmental environment in order to help me explore and straighten out some damaging thoughts, beliefs and trying past experiences. His multicultural background and experience is extremely beneficial for any expat seeking help. His humanity truly shines through and he asks all the right questions to help you see things in a different light. I'm happy to say that today, with his invaluable help, I am medication-free and looking forward to whatever the future will bring."  (Manuel, educator)
