Szilvia worked in the fast-paced corporate environment for nearly 15 years before moving into Psychotherapy. She understands the challenges of modern living and the day-to-day struggles we all face. Her life journey and her work experience paved the way for her desire to gain a deeper understanding of what it is to be human. This led her way to train in psychotherapy.
Szilvia comes from a psychodynamic and a humanistic and integrative training background, which has included person-centered, existential and Gestalt approaches.
Szilvia sees the quality of the therapeutic relationship as central to psychotherapy. Her work is focused on creating a warm and safe environment, where clients can explore their life experiences and work through any associated feelings. In this space, they can build a deeper understanding of themselves and learn to accept the various and unique aspects of who they are in their reality. She provides this with kindness and empathy within a non-judgmental and supporting environment.
