Psychotherapy in English

Is Psychotherapy right for you? It is, if you:

  • want to change your overall satisfaction with life
  • want to gain knowledge about the reasons for your behavior and mood, be able to make better life choices and stop the viscious cycle of your behavior patterns
  • do not want to experience negative feelings like anxiety, worry, overwhelming sorrow or desolation.
  • want to be more social, be able to establish and maintain good, stable and satisfying relationships with others.
  • Want to change the way you think about yourself
  • Need help in dealing with difficult crises in your life.
  • Suffer from different sorts of psychological problems, such as phobias, anxiety, depression, neurosis; or obsessive-compulsive, adaptive, psychosomatic, eating, personality disorders.

In our Center we practice psychodynamic therapy, based on Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis – especially on his concept of human life as being ruled by the wide range of ongoing unconscious processes. Psychodynamic therapy enriched this concept with recent neuroscientifical discoveries and findings on how the human brain operates.

The main therapeutic tool in psychodynamic therapy is the relationship between the patient and his or her therapist. In this relationship, patients unconsciously enact the patterns from their previous and present relationships and activate a series of specific defense mechanisms and behaviors.

The efficacy of psychodynamic psychotherapy has been proven in various empirical studies (i.e. Gallagher-Thompson i Steffen 1992; Leichsenring 2005; Kellett, Clarke i Matthews 2007; Wöller 2008, Shedler, 2010). It is important to acknowledge that this form of therapy proved to be not only effective, but also its results endured longer than in case of other methods of psychotherapy.
