Our company serves a range of psychological services for mixed group of people: adults, kids, young, families and groups.

In every case we propose from one to three introductory consultations, in order to determine person need and expectations, and also to give an information about possible form of our help. Such Consultation doesn’t oblige person to choose our service. Referral to other specialist also may take place.
During psychological consultation we are able to make a full diagnose. We have psychological tests and ability to use them in the most professional way. Among many other things, we examine:
- Intelligence quotient of adults and children
- Level of children’s mental development
- Personality
- Temperament
- Level of fear

  • 1. Individual psychotherapy

    Psychotherapy is a form of healing. It can have a different aims. What is more, that aims can be changed aims during a therapy depending on needs of person. Some examples:

    • Improvement of mood
    • Removal of symptoms (fear, obsessive thoughts, compulsive behaviors, phobias, somatic symptoms)
    • A change in attitude
    • A change in personality
    • Personal development
    • Improvement of interpersonal relations.

    Finding out psychological reasons of disorders, which is an aim of psychotherapy, is a long term process. Psychotherapy may last for one and maybe even a few years.
    In our Psychological Counselling Centre we work according to psychodynamic psychotherapy methodology, which bases mostly on Psychoanalysis. In our work we are driven by psychodynamic psychotherapist axiology, created by Krakowskie Centrum Psychodynamiczne.
    We invite to our psychotherapy:

    • Adults: therapy of disorders related to fear, personal disorders and psychosis.
    • Young and children: in order to learn child’s mental world we use games, special psychological tests and many more ways, including plastic materials.
    • People who speak French or English – we invite foreigners from western culture. According to psychodynamic psychotherapist axiology, which says that psychodynamic psychotherapy is a type of ethnocentric healing, trying to heal a person from outside of our culture would be unethical.
