There are many different types of psychotherapy. All of them have the purpose to help people overcome stress, emotional problems and difficulties in their relationships. What they all have in common is that they are all based on a conversation between a therapist and a client. Some psychotherapies are more casual and aim to provide support for the client and a better understanding of his problems. Some are deeper and involve more thorough analysis of the client's past experiences and how they affect his present life. Psychotherapies I offer you in my office are supportive psychotherapy and analytic psychotherapy (psychodynamically oriented).

Supportive psychotherapy is usually combined with the taking of medication such as antidepressants and/or anxiolytics, and the frequency of sessions can be once a week or less.

Analytic oriented psychotherapy is based on Freud's theoretical concepts of psychoanalysis, but modified for easier use. Sessions take place at least once and up to three times a week and last 45 minutes. Therapist and client work on identification of unconscious contents and how they affect the client's present life, that is, the symptoms and problems that occur. Conscious and emotional understanding of these contents gives the person the possibility of change and finding ways to a more harmonious way of life with better inner satisfaction and harmony.
