What is psychotherapy?
It is a delusion to think that psychotherapy is related only to mental illnesses. Nowadays, this practise becomes more and more common in solving variuos life problems – such as sickness, death, abortion, divorce, accident, abuse and many others.
In words of one syllable, psychotherapy is a search for what is best (most beautiful) in us, in our lives and our relationships with others. It is also valuable for showing our „dark sides“ and the ways in which we create difficulties in our daily lives.
With the help of psychotherapy we can understand what is really important to us and this is a step towards discovery, remembrance and opening up to our true „me“…
The insight that emerges during the therapy helps to know yourself. The aim is not only to get rid of negative symptoms, but also to find and change their sources. During the deep psychotherapy people seek for solutions of problems and also change both – themselves and the quality of their lives.
Psychotherapy helps to manage a chaos in life and restore the faith in future. With its help we can find best ways of transformating despair, helplessness and pain into joy, inner peace and integrity, recovering dreams at the same time. What is most meaningful, psychotherapy lets us feel the taste of the present moment. It offers an opportunity to enjoy beautiful memories, expect „bright future“ and experience the present as it is here and now: joyful or sad, painful or blissful, full of love or hate… That is what the „art of being“ is – the art of life, not existence. It is an art to experience life, to inspire it with the whole body and soul…
