My name is Boryana Angelova and am English speaking psychotherapist practicing in Sofia, Bulgaria. Offer individual psychological counseling and therapy for adults. Conduct seminars for self-knowledge.
In my psychotherapeutic practice, I most often work with people who have:
- difficulties in their relationships;
- difficulties in communicating with others;
- difficulties in making decisions;
- difficulty in experiencing separation or loss of a loved one;
- problems with confidence and self-esteem;
- problems in the workplace with colleagues and the boss;
- anxiety caused by the Covid-19 pandemic (social anxiety, panic attacks).
In parallel with my training in Psychodrama, I went through several training seminars and schools. Thanks to them, I was able to expand and supplement the therapeutic framework of the psychodrama method, including techniques from family constellations, gestalt therapy, trans-generational aspects, dreamwork, and systemic therapy.
My individual work as a counseling psychologist, psychodrama presenter, and therapist is based on various dynamic theories, cognitive-behavioral psychology, and trans-generational / generational aspects.
These were the two years that gave me the opportunity to gain a deeper knowledge of myself, to learn to deal constructively with my inner conflicts, and to go more easily through the critical life situations that characterize each of us. I developed those traits of my character that are necessary for every future therapist, namely - altruism, empathy, patience, and calm.
These three years helped develop my autonomy and gave rise to my personal maturity. This is also the period during which the basic instruments and elements of psychodramatic work are mastered.
This level was again 3 years with a duration of 600 hours and developed in parallel with my private practice as a psychodrama assistant, which was under supervision.
In order to succeed in business and grow in our career, we need to improve our soft skills as well. Going through a one-year Coach course, I learned to train people to be more emotionally intelligent and coping with their emotions at work.
