Everyone has the answers to all questions, the courage to look inside themselves and the ability to take responsibility for life in order to achieve the intended goals. The task of a psychologist is to help to understand a person's current difficulties and to mark the desired direction of change, to provide support and to be next to the client on the way to their goals.
I provide individual counseling to adolescents and adults in case of psychological and emotional difficulties, such as anxiety, depression, depression, difficulties in regulating and controlling emotions, obsessive negative thoughts, insecurity in social situations, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, etc. The counseling process is based on a complex approach, applying various work methods and techniques, creating a suitable, individual cooperation plan for each client, as well as paying attention to the physiological aspects of a healthy psycho-emotional state, such as sleep and physical activity.
I perform psychological research for children from 6 years of age and adolescents, which includes diagnostics of intellect, emotional sphere and behavior, and prepare a psychological research opinion for the Pedagogical Medical Commission, parents or other specialists. I also study adult personality, emotional sphere and cognitive processes (memory, attention, perception, thinking).
