Dinamika Centre offers psychotherapy, counseling and psychiatric consultations. The team of the Centre consists of professionals specialized in a variety of therapeutic approaches. The name of the centre originates from an extensive reliance on the psychodynamic approach. The team of the centre also provides training and supervision to other professionals. The training programs are therapeutically oriented and draw heavily from the team’s experience.
Dinamika Centre was established in 1995 by a group of psychologists and psychiatrists with the main objective to provide psychotherapeutic and psychosocial services. From 2001 it is registered under the Law of Medical Establishments as a psychiatric practice. This legal status provides a clear framework for the activities of the Centre, which are directed towards the achievement of mental wellbeing for our clients (individuals and families). Despite the change of the legal status of the Centre, its overall orientation continued to be psychotherapeutic.
Teamwork is a core feature of Dinamika Centre. Teamwork ensures the maintenance of high quality services coupled with a better consideration of the individual needs of our clients. This approach allows a combination of different therapeutic approaches while maintaining clear professional standards and procedures.
The Centre collaborates with a wide network of services and professionals (psychologists, general practitioners, psychiatrists, school counselors, etc.)
Psychotherapy and psychological counseling create opportunities for positive change and personal growth of individuals, which is achieved by:
This can be attained within a working alliance of therapist and client. Alliance that is directed towards the achievement of the client’s goals. During the process of psychotherapy, the client is offered time, space, and personal engagement from the therapist. These conditions allow the client to explore the problem and to find his/her own way for change and development.
In each case Dinamika Centre offers a therapeutic plan tailored to the individual needs of the client. The plan is elaborated by taking into consideration the nature of the presented problem, the specific life circumstances and the preferences of the client. All aspects of the individual plan are negotiated with the client.
The services in Dinamika Centre are strictly confidential.

At the first visit you will meet with a therapist from the Centre whose task is to make an assessment of your problem and current situation. Usually assessment takes one visit but sometimes two are necessary. Each assessment interview lasts about 50 minutes (75 minutes for a couple or family session).
