Flora Svinarenko View Specialties

  • Are you looking to achieve balance in your life?
  • Do you have difficulty being present in the moment?
  • Do you feel that your worries, low mood, doubt or low self-confidence prevent you from achieving what truly matters to you?  
Psychotherapy can help you to become more flexible, more open to new experiences and move your life towards the direction guided by your values, not by your fears. You can learn how to cope with painful emotions and fearful thoughts rather than avoid or fight them.
Sometimes it is hard to cope with worries, critical thoughts, doubts, hopeless or worthless feelings by yourself. Your family or friends might be supportive and want to help, however not always they know how. Or you might not want to upset or burden them, feeling lonely with your fears, negative thoughts and distressful feelings. Psychotherapy can help you not to face all that issues alone.
 I have been practicing psychotherapy for more than 15 years, helping individuals and families to overcome difficult times of their lives. I try to create an open and welcoming environment, being open minded and non-judgmental.

I specialize in Eating Disorders, Mood Disorders and Anxiety Disorders.
I can also help you with the body image issues, stress management, anger management, emotion regulation, addiction issues, relationship issues and life transitions.
I try to be flexible in my approach hence we can figure out together during the initial stages of therapy which treatment modality (or combination) would be the best for you. We will discuss your expectations from the therapist, your goals for treatment and your concerns regarding the process. If you have tried therapy before, we will talk about what was helpful or unhelpful during your previous experience and learn from that.
I have advance training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (including CBT for Eating Disorders), Emotional Focused Therapy (including EFT for Eating Disorders), Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
