The problems that bring couples to the psychologist are often very varied and repetitive. Couples psychotherapy or couples counselling helps to reduce conflict in your relationship and recreate a sense of connection and intimacy. Even if you are not from Bucharest to come to the office, we can work online via internet and you can get the psychological support you need.
In addition to psychology, counselling or psychotherapy sessions in the office, I also work online. So, if you are an expat in Bucharest, and you want to see a psychologist, now you can also work with psychologists from the comfort of your home. The therapeutic setting is similar to in-person psychology sessions in the office. Personal development can also be achieved through online sessions. This is a type of adult psychological service that helps us to bring the psychological help and support we need into our personal lives.

Frequently asked questions
Psychotherapy is both a treatment method for mental disorders and a way to find answers to problems we have, to understand and get to know ourselves better, and to help us heal emotional pain or change aspects of ourselves. Psychotherapy can be a framework through which we can improve our quality of life and relationships.
You may feel that you need psychotherapy when you are going through a critical time in your life or when someone may be encouraging you to take this step, perhaps even when you have done everything you thought you should but have not had the desired results. You need to see a psychologist if there is something, whether internal (thoughts, emotions, mental health disorders) or external (hard events or trauma) that is interfering negatively with your daily life.
The issues you can talk about in psychotherapy are very varied, depending on the difficulty you want to overcome. It can be personal or relationship problems, difficulties related to anxiety, depression, eating disorders, trauma and traumatic events, problems related to emotions and emotional intelligence, work-related problems and burnout, anything that interferes with your ability to live a happy and balanced life.
Psychotherapy (of any kind, cognitive behavioural psychotherapy, integrative psychotherapy, gestalt and others) can help you heal some distress, understand what triggers the problems you are facing, how thoughts and behaviours contribute to the current situation, balance your thinking and get tools to manage or solve problems.
When you want to come to couples therapy it is important to know a few important things. If there are addiction-related problems in one of the partners, these need to be dealt with in individual therapy, and you can come to couples therapy in parallel. The same applies if one partner has a mental health problem. Both partners must want to work through the problems in the couple with their own emotions, otherwise progress can be hindered.
Hundreds of studies have found that psychotherapy helps people make positive changes in their lives. Psychotherapy also supports you on your personal development journey. Psychotherapy is effective and produces long-term effects. People who seek psychological services feel the benefits of working therapeutically with a psychologist.
If you are not from Bucharest, but you are still an expat living in Romania, you can make an appointment for psychology / psychotherapy sessions online. All you have to do is ask for help.
