We all have better and worse days. Stress, grief, exhaustion, tension, sleeping disorders, fears or interpersonal problems can be never-ending, especially if we don't know how to deal with them. They grow to the point where we feel that the whole world is against us and there is no one to understand. In most cases, we can cope with our psychological problems but when they last for long or are intensive, it is always better to seek psychological help. Thus, we can beat our problems faster, easier and with lasting effect.

I offer you my expertise. My background is in psychoanalytical theory. I help my clients to grab a chance to get a new perspective, feel more in control, centered, and at ease.

PSYCHOANALYTICAL METHOD

Psychoanalysis is internationally accepted approach, approved for its positive long term effects on clients.

It is meant for all those who are in difficult mental and emotional situation, have a desire for self-awareness, personal growth and improvement of overall quality of life. The purpose is to understand causes and circumstances of symptoms’ origins.

To achieve desired result, regular long-term cooperation is required.

During the process, maladaptive schemes and emotional patterns of the client come out. Early childhood traumas can be understand and integrated and the client has a chance to get rid of deep, hidden, destructive and chaotic emotional reaction, that influence his/her life and cause interpersonal conflicts, problems at the workplace, anxiety, depressions or addictions.

As soon as the emotional traumas are lived through and the client handles them and consciously integrate, new, healthier patterns of behavior, thinking and experience grow. Psychoanalysis leads us to happier life and better management of life problems.

IS IT FOR YOU?

Psychoanalytical approach is based on the talk while the openness and reciprocal trust is required. Together, we reveal the client’s inner world and we try to understand the underlying conflicts and patterns.
It is difficult and courageous journey that requires your personal responsibility and drive. A psychoanalyst does not advise or judge. It is not an easy walk and the psychoanalyst is not there only to cheer you up. It is hard work followed by lasting relief from long-term difficulties.

If the following are some of your problems and if you want to take the responsibility for yourself, psychoanalytical method is a good option for you:

  • grief, depression
  • constant anxiety or fears
  • sleeping disorders
  • traumas
  • psychosomatic problems
  • interpersonal conflicts
  • low self-esteem
