Welcome to my site. My name is Natalia Borzenko, I am an existential psychotherapist, member of Western Europe Existential Psychotherapy Association. I have ben counselling since 2009.
My office is located at Chistyi Prudy (Чистые Пруды). I work individually with adults.
My first diploma is a trnaslater/interpreter which allows me to provide consultation in fluent English.
As an Existential Psychotherapist my approach to psychotherapy is philosophically rather than theoretically based. Existential therapy deals with being human and all that this entails, especially how we make choices in our livies and how we approach the problems and situations that we encounter in the world.
I work through a process of dialogue, by listening and questioning, in order to elicit a description of your experience, to understand you and so that you can better understand yourself and come to terms with the problems you face.
Existential therapy essentially helps deal with the problems of everyday living, such as relationship difficulties anxiety/fear, food/body-image issues, addictions, mood disorders, social anxiety, panic, trauma, low self-esteem, unresolved childhood issues, sexual issues and others. It is a clear approach helping clients to see their particular and unique experiences and problems.
A few quotes to help you understand the approach beter:
"Existential Therapists" Process
Therapists who practice existential psychotherapy do not focus on an individual’s past, rather they work with the client to discover and explore the choices that lie before him or her. Through retrospection, the person in therapy and therapist work to understand the implications of past choices and the beliefs that led those to take place, only as a means to shift to the goal of creating a keener insight into oneself. The emphasis is not to dwell on the past, but to use the past as a tool to promote freedom and newfound assertiveness. By coming to the realization that they are not unique nor are they destined for a specific purpose, the person in therapy is allowed to release the obligatory chains that encumbered him or her from existing in fullness from moment to moment. When that happens, he or she is truly free.
Accepting Fears and Overcoming Through Existential Psychotherapy
Existential psychotherapy encourages people to address the emotional issues they face through full engagement and to take responsibility for the decisions that caused them to develop. People who undergo this form of therapy are guided to accept their fears and are given the skills necessary to overcome them through action. By gaining control of the direction of one’s life, the person in therapy is able to design the course of his or her choosing. This creates in the individual a sense of liberation and a feeling of letting go of the despair associated with insignificance and meaningless. Existential psychotherapy involves teaching the person in therapy to grow and embrace his or her own life and to exist in it with wonder and curiosity. By doing so, a person is able to view his or her life experience as a journey rather than a trial, and can eradicate the fear associated with death."
