The path of our team

Sergey Tykva
Psychiatrist.

While working as a psychiatrist, Sergei Pavlovich was faced with the fact that drugs alone are not enough to improve the patient’s condition, he saw that sometimes a conversation with a patient brings a greater effect than drug therapy. This was the time when he asked himself the question: “What additional knowledge and skills could help my wards?” The answer came immediately – Psychotherapy. From 2002 to 2006, he studied at the School of Modern Psychotherapy of the Ukrainian Society of Psychotherapists in a client-centered direction. He considers the main achievement of this training that thanks to the training, he began to understand himself better, live in peace with his feelings and emotions, accept himself and those around him as they are. He continued to improve his knowledge and skills at the Crimean State Medical University, having received the specialization of a doctor-psychotherapist. In 2009 he got acquainted with such a direction of psychology as Socionics. This expanded his understanding of the psychological nature of man. From 2011 to the present, she has been studying at the School of Modern Psychotherapy of the Ukrainian Society of Psychotherapists in the direction of group psychoanalysis. Sergey Pavlovich has significant experience of working with clients both individually and in a group in such areas as addiction, relapse prevention, loss reaction, family psychotherapy. “It so happens that I believe in Psychotherapy. Seeing how the client is changing, how his personal growth is going on, his mental well-being improves, his resistance to the aggression of today’s world is increasing, I am more and more convinced of the correctness of the path I have chosen. ”
