Why therapy

In life we are often facing situations where we know what we want, but have no idea how to get there. From time to time our decisions and circumstances drive us to the point where we don’t hear our wishes’ whispers anymore and we feel lost. Sometimes we become entangled in a repetition of patterns that rack us with anxiety, that push us into black hole of meaninglessness or they make us get deep into the swamp of shame.

Psychotherapy can help us find a way to get what we want in life, to get to know ourselves – our emotions, thoughts, desires and values – and to reveal and remove obstacles that prevent us from being content and authentic.

Therapeutic relationship enables us to discover our repressed and vulnerable parts that remain hidden in everyday life. Genuine contact between a client and therapist, respect and understanding encourage us to confront with life challenges and search for constructive solutions.

  • Feelings of emptiness, lack of energy and apathy
