Psychologist - online therapy

English

My interest in psychology was mostly triggered by working in the children’s home in England, where the children had often serious psychological illness. Working with these children was fulfilling and was giving me a good life purpose.

As a psychologist I help individuals, pairs or families. I see psychology as part of the holistic approach to the human health and therefore I work in close association with other medical and educational professionals.
