My postgraduate training through the last years emphasizes my general tendency to integrate humanistic and psychoanalytic approaches into the clinical practice. I tend to treat my patients as client-centered and my goal is to tailor the correct approach to suit the individual needs. Some people may feel more comfortable working within the frame of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy while others will seek a deeper understanding of their symptom’s roots and would prefer expanding their awareness through dream analysis and experiential work.
