I was looking for a specialist who uses scientifically proven methods in his work. I had a lack of self-acceptance, and anxiety. “Overhaul” of my self-esteem, by reducing anxiety, the level of prolactin decreased, with which I suffered for about two years. It is easy in dialogue; it is felt that we are working not with the symptoms, but with the cause of the problem. The result even exceeded my expectations, so 11 out of 10. I managed to figure out the previous request, so I also feel like 11 out of 10 🙂. I recommend Mikhail as a psychotherapist to anyone who has a need and desire to understand themselves, and as a bonus, it is pleasant to be surprised at the quality of life after therapy. Everything is already great, I do not find what could be improved in your work, professionalism is felt; thank you very much for your work!

Selected you by google search. I liked that you have a degree in psychotherapy and a positive psychotherapy approach. This education instilled confidence. It is important for me. I have had several consultations with you. The theme is internal experiences associated with crisis incidents in life. I received support at a difficult moment in my life and was able to speak out in a safe atmosphere and see how to move on. I have had some experience with other psychotherapists. Of the Russian-speaking specialists that I visited, you are the only one who really knows how to listen. Yes, it became easier for me and my mood changed to a more optimistic one, I received the support I needed at that time. I like that you can joke in the session, but not mocking, but in a kind way. Active listening is a big plus for you, and even being able to just talk it out helps. In general, your positive and kind attitude creates a safe and pleasant atmosphere. Feels like you are talking to a good friend. :) I recommend you as a psychotherapist to anyone who needs an attentive and caring specialist

I liked the neat approach to working with Mikhail, the warm welcome and understanding, and the involvement at all stages of the consultation. Everything is to the point - without unnecessary topics. I managed to find solutions to the problems that have accumulated over the years, and get rid of the neurotic state, anxiety, and low self-esteem. Michael is an excellent psychotherapist who knows how to listen and gives good advice. Giving the opportunity to speak out - helps to hear and make friends with the inner self. I really liked the convenience of skype communication. Saving time and qualified assistance without leaving home. I started noticing results after the second consultation. There was an awareness of their reactions to situations, and Mikhail helped to understand himself. After the acquired knowledge, real changes for the better began in life. At the moment, it turns out to live fully and enjoy the little things, there is hope for a successful future. Rollbacks to negative states are not observed. I can recommend Mikhail's services to anyone who has problems with self-confidence, neurotic conditions, or a lack of motivation for a fulfilling life. I would like to thank Mikhail for the highest professionalism, understanding, and kindness shown during the consultations. You gave me the opportunity to take a different look at my problems, low self-esteem, and anxiety and taught me how to cope with obsessive states myself. Thanks to your practical advice, life has become much more pleasant and there is confidence in the future!

I chose Mikhail's services because I am used to working mainly with a male psychologist, the site is also understandable and easy to work with. Also in the tab “About me”, there were a lot of certificates and documentary evidence about training and qualifications. The topic of the consultation was career guidance. It was very convenient for me to work, for the reason that everything was fast. There was no need to wait a day for a meeting and so on. The result is expected, I was more convinced that I allegedly "seemed" and "thought" about myself, the profession, whether I need to get a new education or new skills, or whether it is worth developing in areas that I am already developing and gaining new experience. A new vision of myself has opened up in some areas, such as public speaking and or working in non-governmental organizations. I will recommend your services if I am asked about the topic of our consultation. I liked it, everything was fast, efficient and without any trouble. We had a session online and it was great. The metaphor I have was as if I took an old dusty box and began to sort through all the tools that were in it, threw something away, left something, scratched something, and cleaned it. I am very grateful that you have rescheduled a time of session due to unforeseen circumstances upon short notice.

I was looking for a good online therapist because I was having serious problems in my life and desperately needed the help of a professional. I was lucky to find Mikhail. After my first session with him, I realized that there was no need for me to look anywhere else for another therapist. I was very satisfied with his knowledge, professionalism, and great advice.
I was dealing with relationship problems and I also was having a lot of anxiety related to the hard process of trying to become a permanent resident in the United States which in my case wasn't going very well. Every time I had a session with Mikhail, he helped me see things from a different perspective. Every single session before talking to him my thoughts and my energy were all over the place but after a session with him I could see my reality from a different angle and with the tools that he provided to me I got to work on a plan to make things work so much better in my life I like his approach very much, he is very knowledgeable, he stays very present during every session and always paid very close attention to what I was telling him and after listening closely to my problems he always helped me to find the answers inside myself to improve the situations I was going through.
I will highly recommend his services to anyone who is going through a tough time and needs a great therapist to help him/her get their lives back on track.
I truly believe that as life moves on, we will all face many different kinds of difficult challenges in this lifetime and it is extremely helpful to have someone like Mikhail to guide you and help you go through the hard times.

I would like to thank Mikhail for his work. I was suffering from headaches for 8 years and after 10 sessions with Mikhail of
positive psychotherapy, I learned how to feel pain coming and understand the mechanism of this disease, learned to control it, and overcome it in the early stage. Lilit I, HR - Expert, Kyiv, Ukraine
Mikhail's services are not only very convenient and professional but very effective. My busy executive schedule doesn't allow for time to make in-person appointments with traditional coaches and therapists.
We have been working together on stress reduction and business coaching.
The main value of the sessions is I was able to clearly define goals and see a direct way to make those goals come to fruition. He also is very effective in helping to find ways to reduce stress.
Mikhail is highly intelligent and well trained. He's able to spot issues and problems that most would overlook. The result was helping to create a less stressful lifestyle as well as achieving goals that had for years seemed very unattainable.
I would recommend his services to busy executives or anyone with a high-demanding job that leaves them with little time for in-person training and help.
He’s been extremely helpful to me! A business owner from Dallas Texas, USA
I've addressed Mikhail with a problem and from the first sessions was impressed by the professional approach and amount of knowledge that Mikhail has on human psychology. My problem was resolved and we were searching together for ways to resolve my basic conflict. You need to understand one thing, that psychotherapists will not solve our problems for us, but open ways to a solution. The decision to do something is up to us! Wish you all luck! Thanks, Mikhail!

I found out about career assessment sessions that Mikhail provides from my brother who personally knows him. I was interested to take a test and get counseling in order to better understand my personality and find out what professional areas suit me the best.
It was important for me to get a professional perspective on my personality, my character, in order to understand other professional areas where I can apply myself. I can say that Mikhail helped me to evaluate my strengths and week sides, and helped me understand how I can use them better. Valuable advice was that one needs to focus on the strengths and delegate where you are weak. Another valuable thing was a list of fields and professions that suit me the best according to my personality and where I can be successful.
I can recommend Mikhail as a professional career consultant that can provide a holistic and objective perspective on your career or business and helps you to understand what to do in order to max up your potential Andrey Yudchenko, auditor, a major international holding, Kyiv, Ukraine
I have addressed Mikhail with the old problem and was surprised by the insights that I was able to make even during the first session! After several sessions, I discovered that issue that I came with was somehow resolved! The problem simply is gone! Thanks, Mikhail! I regret that I was doubting for a long time if I should address a psychologist with my issue or not, I would have saved much time and energy otherwise. Igor Т., entrepreneur, Saint-Petersburg, Russia
Mikhail is a very good listener and creates a comfortable atmosphere for profound conversations. He supported me in difficult moments of life and helped to understand the situation. Thanks to his help I've learned to become more open to other people and their wounds. I enjoy his style of work, full of empathy, a combination of psychotherapeutic counseling, and soft coaching. O. Triboy, lawyer, Kyiv, Ukraine
My mother was asking me to influence my dad's behavior, but my conversations with my father didn't lead to anywhere. I didn't know what to do, was thinking about it all the time, all my thoughts, emotions, and energy was directed only to find the way out from this difficult situation. All of that was a burden to me. I had apathy, the bad mood didn't have the energy for my family or business. Luckily I've found out that I can't resolve it myself and addressed Mikhail. Thanks to his help I was able to understand where to find a solution to this problem. Mikhail helped me to find balance in my relationships with my parents, and I felt so relieved after depression connected with helpless feelings and my inability to do anything about it. I'm so grateful to him for this! Because of his help, my life has more joy! I recommend from all my heart to come to Mikhail for help, he is an amazing person, not only a real professional but has a kind heart and desire to help everybody who needs it! Berzenina Galyna, chief accountant, Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine
I know Mikhail since 2010 and can describe him as a professional psychology consultant. He helped me to resolve some aspects of life management that I’m extremely grateful for. Mikhail has highly developed empathy, easy to trust, and creates a great atmosphere for insights and search for solutions. Besides that Mikhail works all the time on his professional development. Work with Mikhail moves your problem from the deadlock. Denis L,, trainer, scientist, Kyiv, Ukraine
I had difficult relationships with one person, because of that I was in a long depression for a year and couldn't live and work and didn't know what to do. That's why I had online counseling with Mikhail. Honestly, when the psychologist asked me to share what has happened, I couldn't say a word, just started crying. But then I stopped crying, Mikhail started to listen to my story and then ask questions and in the end made a good analysis of my situation. He helps me to resolve the problem that I was fighting for 6 months. Mikhail helped me to look at my problem from a different perspective. I felt as if a big stone has fallen down of my shoulders. I felt relieved...! In situations like that, we are able to give advice to our friends but unfortunately, when something happens to us, we are not able to find answers. Consultations with a professional psychologist are much needed because it's easier to see a problem from the outside and easier to deal with it this way. Ludmila P, development manager, Budapest, Hungary
I've addressed coach with a desire to get rid of the desire to have responsibility for everybody around me and forget about my own needs. I was surprised that Mikhail didn't push his opinion on me and give me a chance to understand aspects of the problem myself. I've enjoyed an action plan for the issue resolution that we have developed. Everything was in their places all of a sudden. I felt relief as if I got rid of the burden that I couldn't carry anymore and that I've put on myself. I understood what can help me in reaching my goal. I believe that the methods that coach have used are highly effective. My problems turned into tasks and I've understood that coaching is a serious area of expertise that brings results, but requires from me some efforts. I thank Mikhail for the accomplished work. Encouraging and positive coaching - this is exactly what we need. Tatyana S, commercial director, Kyiv, Ukraine
I was looking for a psychologist who can do skype sessions and provide fast results. The topic of my request was self-esteem. The main value of psychotherapy is that I have learned to accept myself, organized everything that was piled up in my head into order, and received serenity and pure joy. I was skeptical of expecting results, but the result happens to be wonderful: I am confident in myself; I have clear plans for the future, live in present, and enjoy life and the world! I recommend Mikhail’s services to everybody! We have so many stresses nowadays that we are digging down our problems. If you pull them out – one can breathe more easily! Anna, paramedic, Kyiv, Ukraine
Mikhail was recommended to me as a good career consultant. We needed an educational career assessment prior to choosing a university. The main value was that we were working together with the child and she was answering questions herself. We are happy with the results, as expected. Counseling helped to structure an understanding of the professional choice and confirm that the choice was correct. I have enjoyed feedback and care during the session. I can definitely recommend this service to parents that want to understand their child's abilities better or understand the child better in general. Also, a can recommend this service to teenagers for a better understanding of themselves. Daughter and I completely satisfied with the help that been provided. Additionally want to note recommendation on how to process received information. We are grateful! Iryna K, banking, Kyiv, Ukraine
I have chosen skype sessions because of time flexibility and responsiveness. I have addressed Mikhail with further career development and personal issues. The main value of work was that I have reached clarity and organized multiple aspects of my life with great help and guidance from Mikhail. Services of Mikhail are better because of his responsiveness and flexibility to meet with clients. My result was to reach some clarity, fight doubts, and feel peace of mind. After the course of sessions, I started feeling better, learn how to better understand and accept myself. I would recommend Michael to everyone who wants to better understand yourself, your values and goals, and how to make decisions in your personal and professional life based on that.

I decided to choose your services because you offer English-speaking consultancy and therapy. I was interested to do behavioral analysis, explore the impact of my behavior on relations with others, wanted to work on my self-confidence. The main value of online therapy was to discuss personal issues and to get some advice on how to deal with my personal challenges. Learned to know me better and how and when to apply some techniques that can positively impact my behavior and my relations notably within the family and with my wife. A great advantage of consultancy via Skype is of course that it can easier fit into a busy agenda and does not require any travel time. We used EMDR therapy. I remembered some difficult scenes from the past including from childhood, but I am not sure whether I needed EMDR for this, but it helped. I recommend online therapy to any ex-pat here who has a need to talk and get some first feedback and support both for family or work issues. Naturally, each person must find out whether your offer is convenient for him or her. Johannes, EU Official, Brussels / Belgium, now ex-pat in Kyiv
The initial 15 minutes talk encouraged me to decide to work with a coach. After this talk, i understood that this is exactly what I need. I wanted to work on willpower, motivation, and discipline. Mikhail is a great listener and can grasp the core of the problem, We used accountability and step by step strategy to resolve the problem. During the coaching, I had a feeling of control and understanding of the roots of the problem. As a result, now I'm able to accomplish more during the day and be motivated. Recommend! Vladyslav Razumov, CEO furniture manufacturing company. California, USA
After reading the endorsements section on the website and the description of the method I've decided to get therapy with Mikhail. I had issued with building relationships and some psychological barriers in communication. The main value of online positive psychotherapy is getting results fast because the method is so effective. The online services that Mikhail provides differ from others in that we start working on the problem from the very first session without a long exploration of the childhood issues for 5 sessions with no progress. I achieved results in 5 sessions, sooner than I expected. Now I feel more confident, many things that were a big problem before don't bother me at all! Recommend to all who want to overcome fears; phobias and experience difficulties in communication with people. Dennis, Financial Analyst, Soledar, Ukraine
I found Mikhail's services in Google, have read reviews, looked at diplomas and certificates. After the first 15-minute consultation, I've decided to have online psychotherapy. The psychotherapist inspired confidence, I felt a good connection. We have worked on the topic of self-esteem. Prior to this, work with various psychotherapists was accompanied by a lack of connection, pressure, and lack of professionalism with the likelihood of re-injury. The main value of consulting with Mikhail was a good connection and his professionalism. In spite of the fact that at the beginning of the therapy I felt alarmed, scared, restless. now I feel - in general, great! My opinion is that a psychotherapist is suitable or not suitable individually, so everyone should choose the one that is a good fit for you. I also want to note that Mikhail is an empathic person and for me, it's an important quality for a therapist. Elena Zhilenko, a freelancer in IT, Ukraine, Kiev
The topic of psychotherapy is personal relationships. A prompt and accurate response was received to my problem; given the tools to work with it, which immediately helped.
I felt empathy on your part, which was not in contact with other specialists, as well as a strategic approach to solving my problem, in accordance with my life goals and objectives. I would like to mention the excellent homework, a strategic approach to solving problems, a comfortable emotional background of the conversation, a quick response.
Calm, emotional balance returned to me, the problem was gone. Before psychotherapy I was in a depressed state of mind for several days, tormented by doubts and guilt feelings. After the first conversation, the state immediately improved, and then, as far as independent work, it stabilized and returned to normal. I will recommend your services to friends and acquaintances.

Text about career guidance online on the site and the smiling photo of Mikhail built up my confidence to ask for help. I had a consultation on vocational guidance. Mikhail gave me new ideas on where to go next and in what directions. I got what I wanted; I think the result is good, I felt inspired to achieve the result. I have nothing to compare this experience with, but I liked everything, and I recommend Mikhail's consultations to people who have problems with career guidance. Alexander, Sales Manager, Kyiv, Ukraine
I chose your services because you seemed to be more reliable than other consultants did. The topic I turned to help in career guidance. I am happy with the test results and the follow-up consultation. There is no one to compare with, you were the first consultant I turned to for help, but I am happy with the result. I received a file with possible career options that suit me. The information about the areas of work in which I could try myself and make money on this was useful to me. I felt like I had more skills than I thought. Your services are useful, accurate, and interesting; I advise everyone who wants to figure out who to work next. It is easy to talk to you, which means it is easy to trust you. Thanks!
