What we offer

What we offer

The aim of our center is to help people recognise and understand the reasons behind the difficulties they struggle with and find the hidden meaning of repetitive patterns of behaviour and symptoms. The consultations are an opportunity for a patient to get acquainted with the nature of the psychoanalytic process based on understanding the unconscious communication of the internal world. Our center provides culturally competent health care services to every patient, regardless of your race, ethnicity and cultural background. We pay additional attention to the process connected with adaptation which can result in cultural shock.

Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is a therapeutical technique and theory derived from Freudian psychoanalysis. What differs it from traditional psychoanalysis is a number of sessions: in traditional psychoanalysis 4-5 and in psychoanalytic psychotherapy 2-3 per week. Psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy are sometimes described as the talking cure. It is an intensive treatment process that requires active participation rather than giving advice and prescribing medications. The relationship with the therapist is important as it provides an opportunity to examine the internal world of the patient's ways of thinking and behaviours in how they perceive reality.




People who experience any of the following problems may be suitable for psychoanalytical psychotherapy:

  • personality disorders

  • problem in relationships

  • eating disorders

  • sexual difficulties

  • depression

  • somatic problems which are medically unexplained

  • trauma

  • anxiety

  • obsessive-compulsive behaviours
