In 2006 Nadezhda graduated from Sofia University with a B.A. in Social Work. Soon afterwards she moved to Dublin to complete an M.Phil in Psychoanalytic Studies in Trinity College and an M.A. in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Independent Colleges where she graduated with first class honours. Nadezhda has presented papers at various congresses and study groups in Ireland and abroad and is currently co-editing a book on Lacan’s fourth and fifth seminars. 

Nadezhda works with people who are experiencing difficulties in their lives over an extensive period of time or during crises. She offers a non-judgmental, confidential and safe space where one will be listened to, encouraged and supported. Such difficulties may manifest themselves in symptoms such as: anxiety, depression, trauma, work problems, love issues, difficulties in sexual relations,  panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, body pains without a medical cause to name just a few. 

The psychoanalytic form of treatment emphasizes what is unique in the story of each person. 

"Psychoanalytic therapy allows a better understanding of one's own motivations and the causes of one’s suffering, on this basis informed choices can be made and a different positioning to one’s symptoms or suffering can occur. Sometimes the only way to know about the work is to start it."
