About me

Ukrainian, Russian, English-speaking psychologist. Born and raised in Ukraine in a bilingual family. I've been traveling around the world for several years, mostly by hitchhiking and lived in 3 countries. I've also been using couchsurfing quite a lot. It all helped me to immerse into cultures and grasp differences in people from various countries all around the globe.
CBT: Cognitive behavioral therapy
Personal development

My approach

During my session, I pay attention to build a warm and supportive environment. I mostly integrate Cognitive Behavioral approaches (CBT). These methods will help you to manage your difficulties and support you in achieving your goals. I provide a warm and nonjudgmental space to support clients to explore and make sense of themselves, their difficulties and life challenges and find new ways of coping. I have worked with people from different life paths to assist them to make the necessary life and lifestyle changes that will enable them to lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives. I have a passion for working with children and adults and helping them to adjust to change in their life and move away from feeling stuck. I enjoy helping individuals to reconnect to their purpose, find new ways of coping and rebuild their confidence and self-esteem by dealing with irrational beliefs and learn how to manage emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in a healthier, more realistic way. It helps to work through their past, present, or future issues from a solution-orientated framework. I use practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT). I have also worked in a private school for 5 years. During this experience working with school aged children I provided a safe place for kids to make sense of themselves, their experiences and the world around them. I use a compassionate and caring approach tailored to each child’s needs and interests and uses a combination of play therapy, skills training and supportive counselling to help.
