Approaches: Psychoanalytic, person-centred, integrative, and humanistic.
Valerija’s approach to psychotherapy is based on the belief that every client is unique. This approach creates a space for client to talk about their suffering; naming how and what you feel allows a deeper, better understanding of what has been stirred up, and with this understanding comes a certain peace of mind the one that allows for a healthier mental state.
