Mgr. Klára Dudková, MSc.

BACKGROUND

My work with clients is focused on the connection between the body and the psyche (body psychotherapy). I have a private psychotherapy practice in Prague and also work at the Psychosomatic Clinic (www.psychosomatika.cz), where I help patients in a board-and-care facility. My services include coaching using the gestalt approach and I do this for both groups and individuals. I also offer programs for groups that combine education, self-experience and bioenergetic exercises. This year, my colleagues and I have created a unique programme for corporate and other clients looking for team-building events based on cooperation, relaxation and personal growth (forest therapy, drama therapy, body psychotherapy). I volunteer in the Psycare project for the Czech Psychedelic Society (CZEPS) (http://psycare.cz). 

Additional education and training have included 5 years of psychotherapy training in integrative body-oriented psychotherapy with the Czech Association for Body-Oriented Psychotherapy (www.capzt.cz)  and 2 years of training in coaching using the gestalt approach (www.gestaltessence.cz). My experience in the commercial sphere includes work in HR and adult education. I completed the 12-month course “Train the Trainer”, which is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) in London and, upon completion, worked there as an internal instructor.  

I am interested in various activities that facilitate personal growth, some of which I practice daily as part of having my own children. I also work with altered states of consciousness (e.g. in Maitri breathwork, www.maitri-dychani.cz). I am particularly interested in the integration of these experiences and their effect on personal growth.

I believe in enjoying life – being aware of the changes within ourselves and how they affect the world around us, of the interconnectedness of nature, the human psyche, our bodies and our spirit. 

I have two amazing sons. My other hobbies include travelling and discovering new things.

WHAT I OFFER

I offer individual psychotherapeutic counselling sessions to adults. In my work I attempt to connect the body, the mind, the soul and the spirit, using techniques for increasing the awareness of emotions, feelings and needs in the human body. I draw on my knowledge in bioenergetic and biosynthesis therapies, Kum Nye yoga, gestalt therapy, as well as my own experiences. The methods, techniques and services I offer also include guided imagery, meditation, externalization using various objects (stones, seashells, etc.), gestalt coaching, counselling, facilitation, and training.  Last but not least, I can also assist in the integration of psychedelic (or holotropic) experiences into one’s life. I work as an assistant in Maitri Breathwork as an assistant and can organize sessions for individuals or groups.
