Something interesting about my approach

I would like to draw your attention to my approach and the particular technique that I have been applying for 20 years. The technique based on Winnicotts' (1971) approach and recently has developed by Dr Brafman (2012). Personally, I have found this very useful in my clinical work and my clients loved the moment when they become acquainted with the deepest secret of their personality, feeling the power inside of them.

I have a range of qualifications and my diplomas and certificates were gained in:

· CBT Cognitive Behaviour Therapy/REBT, Rational Emotional Behaviour Therapy

Published Papers and Workshops

Some examples of my skills can be seen in my clinical papers entitled "Power of Drawing" and "Drawing and Anxiety". These papers were published in an international journal ‘Acta- Medica’ where is explained the particular technique that I have been applying more than 20 years in work with children.
