Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is a process of helping in prevention and treatment of psychological difficulties and disorders. At the same time, it is a process of life quality enhancement and stimulation of growth and development in personal as well as family and professional areas. Upon a successful therapy completion people become more satisfied and enthusiastic to face life problems, understand others and have close relationships with them.

Psychotherapy is performed through mutual exchange of knowledge, experiences and emotions during therapeutical conversations between the therapist and the client, including verbal and nonverbal communication. It is based on equal and collaborative relationship of mutual trust and respect. Therapist enables the client to choose the subjects and what and how many information they will give. He respects client’s own competency and uniqueness of their own capacity for change. He works as a participator, facilitator and educator with his clients, so they can accomplish what they wanted. Goals of psychotherapy are discussed between the therapist and the client in advance.

The most important psychotherapeutical ethical principle is confidentiality. That applies to both the therapist and the client. Everything that happens during psychotherapy stays in the room, except when other specialists need to be included, after therapist and client made the deal about that.

Hypnotherapy

The use of hypnotherapy represents part of my integrated approach to psychotherapy, including gradual or simultaneous use of various psychotherapeutic methods in the aim of the best possible adjustment to the needs of each client and more efficient elimination of difficulties and disturbances.

Hypnosis is a method which can be efficient independently, as well as to improve efficiency of other psychotherapeutic methods.

At an introductory session with clients, I focus on clarifying objectives of a therapy and manners in which we can obtain them by using hypnosis, as well as on what perception and experience a client has in relation to hypnosis.

The most common perception of clients is that the skill of hypnotising is actually a technique of manipulating other person’s will, that the hypnotist enters the client’s subconscious mind and controls his/her behavior.

On the contrary, the use of hypnosis for medical purposes first of all requires a consent and cooperation with the hypnotherapist in order to achieve a state of deep mind and body relaxation, where the client reaches a concentrated state of mind, strong focus on suggested contents, images created by the therapist’s suggestions.

A beneficial effect of the state of a hypnotic sleep is that a person is suggested a manner of resolving a problem, namely eliminating a difficulty. To make it successful, it is necessary to establish the relation of trust between the client and the therapist where the client is to be released of his/her irrational fears that the therapist will manipulate him/her or that s/he will not be able to wake up from the state of a hypnotic sleep. Clients wake up spontaneously after the completion of a session, remembering its course.

The hypnotherapist is obliged to provide the client only with suggestions they previously agreed on, which are useful and acceptable for the client from the aspect of his/her values and beliefs.

If the client cannot eliminate his/her prejudices and fears or if s/he is not prone to suggestions or has a poor ability of concentration and visualisation, hypnosis is not a method of choice.


Psychotherapeutical help is appropriate for all ages:


  • It helps children to cope with developmental difficulties as they grow up;

  • It helps adolescents in perceiving their own personal abilities and constraints, not to be “Than rebels without the cause”, to deal successfully with developmental crisis, and to complete the processes of individuation and separation from the family;

  • It helps adults not only in preventing, reducing and resolving psychological problems and disorders, but in preserving and enhancing their own creative potentials;

  • It helps old people to preserve and strenghten optimism and endurance in treating organic illnesses, to recover faster and better after any illness.
