Forms of therapy
»Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.«
The decision to enter psychotherapy or counselling is often the most difficult part of the process. At the same time, it is the first positive step that shows one's readiness to face one's problems in life and one’s motivation to resolve these problems. The essential of every therapy is the relationship between the patient and the therapist. Therefore, we strongly believe that the relationship a therapist builds with his or her patient presents the base for successful therapy. It is of great importance to choose a therapist whom you can believe and with whom you can feel safe.
