PSYCHOLOGICAL CONSULTATIONS

„...If you can change things and warm up the heart of at least one person, ... If you can give him support, appreciation and optimism. ... If you can bring a smile on somebody’s face, to make him feel understood and meaningful
DO IT NOW!”

,,I‘ve always been looking for strength and confidence beyond myself, but they come from within.
They’ve always been there. "

Anna Freud
