For me, water is the symbol of life. It is the primordial source, life’s origin and its flow mirrors our own lives – sometimes tumultuous, sometimes calm. When life is in flux, energies flow freely and spontaneously. If life becomes blocked, say as if a dam had been built in its path, the force of the flow is inhibited: the river subsides, the river bed dries out.
“The force of the sea is powerful and resonant, and calls on us simply to be.”
Water however has the power to heal, to reinvent itself, forging new paths and navigating old ones and these are the benefits I try to pass on to my clients using various Gestalt Therapy techniques enabling them to address past issues and once again become reacquainted with their “inner self” or “core self”.

"From 2005 to 2008 I was counselled by Gestalt Psychotherapist Christina Burki. During this time I learned to deal with my past and choose the goals that I wanted to reach. Before working with Christina I would retreat into my shell. Now I have come out of my shell and am an adventurous person. Thank you Christina for those three years, you gave me the support and guidance I needed.’’

‘’Christina guided me through my problems of loneliness, fear, being full of pain, living my life like I was in a play and feeling homesick as an immigrant. I am now authentic. I say what I want and need. I am in full contact with my dear family and I know where I belong. My inner child and I are one now and I found my spiritual home in myself. Thank you Christina, I can highly recommend you to anyone’’

‘’When I met Christina in 2009 I felt immediately that she was the right person to talk to. I was absolutely ready to do some work and it took only several hours for me to feel much better. She is very professional and most importantly, a very insightful therapist. I loved every hour with her’’

“In working with traumatized patients Christina used creative methods which really helped the patients find new ways of getting through trauma - distorted structures in themselves, finding new self-support and reorganizing their lives constructively. I have appreciated and valued Christina’s original and existential way in apply Gestalt Therapy Methods and adequately adopting them to the various patients structures and conditions."
