faWhat does a psychologist do?

The psychologist helps people to identify the root of their problems through the better understanding of themselves and their surroundings. She also helps them gain useful skills which they can use in the future when a problem occurs.



What qualifications does a psychologist have?

A psychologist earns her diploma after five years of study in a psychology program at a university. After that she can complete various postgraduate courses and trainings based on her areas of interest which widen her knowledge and make her more effective and up to date.



When should you go to a psychologist?

There are several reasons to seek professional help. For example, dealing with a specific problem, needing to get to know ourselves better, or strengthening our relationships. It can be useful to look for a psychologist when you feel like you need a positive change but you are not sure where to start.



How can I tell my personal problems to a complete stranger?

Surprisingly, it can be easier to open up to someone who is a stranger. The psychologist does not judge or have pre-judgments and she creates a safe and accepting atmosphere. This helps the individuals express their feelings and thoughts more precisely and honestly and sometimes during the process discover feelings that come as a surprise.



What happens during the sessions?

During the sessions you are sitting on a comfortable couch and talking to the psychologist who is attentively listening to you. Most of the time you decide what would you like to talk about; sometimes the psychologist guides you through questions and adds some comments. The first few sessions are about getting to know you better. You review your problem or your reason for coming which we will eventually explore deeper. Prior to your first session it is useful to identify and priorize specific topics to explore with the psychologist. If this is daunting to you we can work together to get a better idea of your issues and expectations. After the first few sessions we will start to focus on deeper exploration and start making positive changes. During this phase (especially in the cases of couple and family consultations) the professional can also give homework.

The psychologist is bound by complete confidentiality. Anything shared during the sessions remains between the client and the psychologist only. 



How long is this process?

During the first meetings we agree on the frequency of the sessions and also on the expected number of occasions needed. It is important to mention that we can not expect a problem which took shape over a long period of time to disapear in a few weeks. A positive change can begin in a short time but the stability of it is still unsteady. It is hard to plan the length of a process as it largely depends on the type, complexity, and other characteristics of the problem. The most important component of success: the motivation of the individual. Every person is an expert on themselves - the psychologist helps and supports the client with her competence and routine, but the steps towards changes have to be made by the client himself.
