Mgr. Anna Říhová

BACKGROUND

After graduating with a degree in psychology from the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, I have been working as a healthcare psychologist at the Department for the Treatment of Psychotic Disorders of the Daily Psychotherapeutic Sanatorium Ondřejov. Additional studies have included 5 years of psychotherapy training in gestalt therapy (IVGT) and a 2-year course in art therapy and artphiletics. I am also a member of the Czech Psychedelic Society, where my major involvement is in the Psycare project, which specializes in assisting clients dealing with difficult psychedelic experiences. My professional interests include expanded states of consciousness, psychospiritual growth and psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy. When not working, I have a wide range of other interests including self-education, various creative activities, and keeping my close personal relationships strong and healthy.

WHAT I OFFER

I offer individual psychological counselling and gestalt therapy sessions for adults and adolescents. Topics I can help you with include:

  • difficult situations and support in difficult times,
  • relationships and relationship crises,
  • feelings of anxiety and depression,
  • spiritual crises (spiritual emergencies) and psychospiritual support,
  • integration of difficult psychedelic experiences,
  • personal growth.

In my therapy sessions, I use the gestalt approach, which focuses on the experiencing and awareness of the here and now, and an authentic contact with one’s inner self. The essential goal is to bring into harmony the mind, the emotions, and the body. In such sessions, it is essential to establish a safe space for self-expression and provide support for seeking out new experiences. I can also include work with guided imagery and art therapy in our sessions. I do not administer psychedelic substances as part of my therapeutic work.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Both long-term cooperation and short-term crisis interventions are possible.

PAYMENT INFORMATION

1000 CZK per 50-minute session. Cash payments only.
