Our Psychotherapy Center offers psychoanalytic psychotherapy mainly based on self psychology. Psychotherapy is based on the common belief that unconscious past events strongly influence individuals and produce specific symptoms or more general emotional distress. In self psychology, we respect your own experience and focus on helping you become aware of the underlying sources of your difficulties. In a therapeutic dialogue, we help you restore mental balance and stability.
