Individual sessions

I am a psychologist working online. Clients usually like me because I am calm, empathic, thorough and have a good grasp of methodology.
I use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). 
A session costs 70 euros and lasts 55 minutes.
You can book a session with me by e-mail or Telegram.

My areas of expertise

I work with the variety of psychological disorders and life difficulties that people face. If you feel like there’s some confusing stuff going on in your life – you can come in with that. We can work together to find out what’s going on and what to do about it. 

I have professional interests – what I work with most and best:

  • The effects of psychological trauma (PTSD and complex PTSD).
  • Borderline personality disorder and other severe emotion regulation problems.
  • Autism spectrum disorders. We work with autistic clients to treat co-occurring disorders, I help them to learn skills that can be helpful and to build a full and joyful life. 

I only work with adults. 
I do not work with eating disorders, psychotic conditions or addictions (unless they are symptoms of another disorder).

How do I work?

I respect the personality and confidentiality of my clients, I respect the ethics of the profession, I discuss my work with my supervisor on a weekly basis and I attend intervision sessions. If necessary, I refer clients to psychiatrists with whom I work for further diagnosis and pharmacotherapy. 

I use three psychological approaches in my work:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

I’m a member of the Russian Dialectical Behavioral Association (ADBT) and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ASBC).

What does the therapy look like?

Therapy is a clearly structured process with a certain logic, it involves regular sessions. One-off or chaotic sessions are unlikely to produce the desired results.

There are four stages to therapy:

  1. We clarify the problems and goals of the therapy, and together we develop a clear concept of what is happening.
  2. We discuss and agree a plan and duration of therapy
  3. We work towards our goals using evidence-based protocols and common sense.
  4. We work on relapse prevention, booster sessions and closure.

The duration of the session is 55 minutes.
Usually meetings are held once a week. In some cases it is possible to meet twice a week or twice a month, as well as unscheduled meetings (to be discussed individually).
The duration of the course of therapy depends on protocol recommendations as well as individual enquiry.
