Sensitivity, Authenticity, Compassion

Individual therapy and insomnia treatment in Prague 6

My name is Margarita, I am a therapist and a doctor.

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process of making the unconscious of the mind conscious, enhancing one’s health and happiness. By exploring entrenched belief systems, I help my clients unveil a liberated way of living with confidence and empowered presence.

About

Margarita Bergerová, M.D.

Hello! My name is Margarita and I am a therapist and a doctor.

I believe that the native human nature doesn’t consist of chronic feelings of failure and self-criticism, but of kind self-acceptance and healthy self-confidence.

In my practice I support people, who long to be in harmony with who they really are, but are suffocated by worries, sadness, emptiness and anxiety. I guide them on the way to their authentic self and more fulfilling life.  During my medical studies, I first sought psychotherapeutic help myself. Thanks to my own experience, I know how transformative can having a true listening and unjudgemental ear be.

Apart from being a therapist and a doctor I also write, am a movie fan, an introvert, a closeted musician and a dog’s best friend. I love being a therapist and will never stop admiring my clients!

My approach

Using the cohesive lens of mind, body and spirit interconnection is crucial for gaining a deeper insight into human as a whole for me and for my clients. My main objective is to create a safe therapeutic space, where you can feel free to be your true self. I enter therapy with my whole heart and my authentic self. 

The main psychotherapeutic modality of my work is Gestalt, but in order to create an individual therapy for every client, I use elements from other therapy schools as well. The centre of all of them is our therapeutic relationship. 

Elements I integrate into therapy:

  • Gestalt therapy
  • Mindfulness and focusing
  • Cognitive-behavioral techniques
  • Personality typology – MBTI
  • Enneagram
