Inès B. Limberg

About Me

My name is Inès B. Limberg, I majored in psychology with a master's degree in clinical and occupational psychology. I am trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy for adults and relational psychotherapy for children and adolescents. I continuously pursue further education and in my practice I draw also from other available therapeutic approaches depending on individual needs of my clients.

I'm offering guidance in self-discovery and personal growth, guidance in grieving and support with difficult life situations and crisis. I can accompany you in handling stress, anxiety, depressive states, problems in interpersonal relationships, feelings of inferiority and emptiness.

I treat each client individually, respectful of their origins, culture and unique life journey. My work with the client is completely confidential, based on mutual trust, respect, privacy and feeling of safety. I specify in therapy for adult clients. I am not a health worker and I do not provide official diagnosis.

I provide consultations not only in Slovak but also in English, Spanish and French.
