"Markus not only made me feel comfortable in my vulnerability but encourage me/challenged me to think deeper into what I thought I knew of myself. Overall, talking to Markus has been like talking to a friend, no judgement, and no pressure."
Written by C.L. in November, 2018 after counseling with Markus for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and career difficulties.
"Markus is very intelligent and understanding. He was with me through my dark times. He likes to call it exploratory. We made a good team together and resolved a lot of things. I transformed into this amazing person with help from him."
Written by J.A. in 2018 after counseling with Markus for 3 months on issues concerning relationships, and intimacy.
"Markus is very professional, though even when I write that I think of someone being good at their job but that is all they are focused on, but that is not at all when I mean when I say it about Markus. He is very friendly and makes you feel so comfortable.
At the beginning I was so nervous about my sessions with him and worried about them on the day. I have now finished my fourth session with him and I felt totally comfortable talking to him about what had happened in my week. He finds the perfect balance of encouraging you to talk, and take the first step, without it ever feeling like he's pushing you to talk.
It seems as though he really recognises what kind of person you are but not just to understand and help you but also to adjust himself, saying jokes, how he presents himself, and it helps you to feel at ease with him, allowing you to open up more. I am very happy I am able to have him as my counselor and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a friendly face to help them with whatever they might be going through."

"Knowledgeable objective and very attentive counselor. The methodology in use is extremely helpful to get to know better oneself."
Written by V.I. in 2018 after counseling with Markus for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and bipolar disorder.
"I am proud to say that I swim through my problems these days. I make peace with myself (not as many battles). I am happy (I do giggle a lot)! Markus and I took great effort to earn it. After our first meeting, I lunged and hugged Markus and then I told him I a big hugger. He responded with, 'That's good - hugs can stimulate the human brain to release oxytocin, which is the bonding hormone, so go out and hug more people!'"
