Message to clients

I make every effort “to create new therapy for each client”, as said by Irvin Yalom, the founder of Existential therapy. My goal is to assist you to become a self-confident, emotionally and mentally healthy person capable to create harmonious relationship. I want you to know that you can leave life that you desire, that is motivated by your expectations, not expectations of other people and to move towards greater autonomy in your life.
