Your Psychotherapist

My Approach

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

I’m Mojca Žirovnik and I’m your therapist. I welcome you and guide you through the process of self-discovery by offering you not only my knowledge, but also a safe and warm space, where you can freely open up and speak about yourself. This will be the time and space dedicated to you only.

I’m a resident of Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy and I also apply my knowledge of:

  • BCT (behavioral-cognitive therapy, especially the so-called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)
  • Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP)
  • Social skills, with an emphasis on interpersonal communication
  • Life-coaching

I completed my studies of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at Sigmund Freud University in Ljubljana. In addition, I have completed all three levels of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). The first level (Practitioner NLP) in Ljubljana, the second (Master Practitioner NLP) at University of Santa Cruz in California under the mentorship of Robert Dilts and Judy deLozier and the third (NLP Coach) in Orlando, Florida under the mentorship of Dr. Richard Bandler.

I have completed the educational program of Social Skills in England and was awarded a certificate by London Chamber of Commerce. At Harvard Law School, Boston, USA I finished Conflict Transformation training. I also did Assertive Communication training with dr. Roberta Giurco in Trieste, Italy.

I completed an extensive program in the field of Coaching with International Coaching Community (ICF accredited), coach Joseph O’Connor.

I work as an educator in OMRA program (, where I speak about personality disorders. OMRA is an acronym in Slovenian for the program entitled “With Greater Mental Health Literacy to Manage Mood Disorders”. The main goal of the innovative OMRA program is to inform the population about mental health and how to deal with and manage mood disorders.

I fully respect and work in accordance with the norms of the Code of Ethics of the European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP), the Code of Ethics of the ECPP and the Code of Ethics of the Slovenian Association for Psychotherapy (SKZP) and the Personal Data Protection Act.
