My Credentials:

Hey there! Glad you’ve found me here – I believe it is no coincidence. My name is Laila Sikander, a psychologist from Sofia, Bulgaria. My career in psychology was born from a profound personal transformation that led me from the world of economics into the deeply fulfilling realm of psychotherapy. I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Schema Therapy, and Systemic Constellations, areas in which I’ve gained a deep understanding through both academic study and hands-on experience. My work spans various settings, from corporate environments to therapy centers, offering emotional support for a wide range of issues including anxiety, panic attacks, depression, self-esteem challenges, and the intricate dynamics of relationships. My experience with UNICEF programs has also enriched my practice, allowing me to work with individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds and understand the unique challenges they face.

My Approach:

Diving into the depths of your experiences, I focus on what’s real and meaningful. Quick fixes or sugarcoating reality aren’t my style. Our sessions are about teamwork, transforming fear into confidence and doubt into trust, with the ultimate goal of helping you lead a life true to your needs, not overshadowed by fears. You’re invited to bring your entire self to our sessions, quirks and all, into a judgment-free zone. We will explore your unique story, laugh together, face challenges head-on, and collaboratively discover what works best for you. My approach is customized, empathetic, and designed to help you breathe easier and live more authentically. Bravo for taking this first step! Ready for the next one? I’m here to support you every step of the way.

About Me:

My path to becoming a psychologist was full of twists and turns, leading me from Economics to a deeper connection with Psychology. This journey has been incredibly enriching, allowing me to connect deeply with the individuals I support. My mixed cultural background and extensive travels have given me a broad perspective, helping me to be open-minded and understanding. I pride myself on being down-to-earth and approachable, keen on truly understanding where you’re coming from so we can find the best way forward together. My dedication to learning has taken me to workshops around the world, continually enriching the support I offer.

Central to my practice is the belief in the power of human connection and the potential for personal growth. I am deeply committed to fostering a therapeutic environment where clients feel safe, understood, and valued. This means not only addressing the symptoms of distress but also exploring the underlying causes and fostering resilience and self-awareness. I believe that each person has a unique story and path to healing, and my role is to guide and support them on this journey with compassion and expertise.

Summary:

I am an English and Bulgarian-speaking psychologist in Sofia, specialized in working with adults and couples. I bring a wealth of experience, a compassionate approach, and a deep commitment to supporting my clients in their pursuit of emotional well-being and personal growth. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or simply seeking a deeper understanding of yourself, I am here to help you navigate your path with empathy and professionalism. Let’s embark on this  journey together.
