Psychotherapy Palmovka
Veronika Cveckova, M.Div.
More smiling, less worrying. More compassion, less judgment. More blessed, less stressed.
More love, less hate.” ― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

About Me

I believe the goal of psychotherapy is to create a safe space where you can see your uniqueness, value and potential, where you can see yourself with compassion, acceptance and love. Our observable behavior is only the tip of the iceberg.  Underneath the surface, there are emotions, perceptions, expectations, thought patterns, beliefs, needs and desires - all of these are the subject of therapy. My goal is to convey to you a way of relating to yourself and to others that will enable you to become more fully human, and live your life with greater joy.
