Stephane Radoykov

Last name
English, French, Bulgarian, Spanish

I graduated as a medical doctor in 2019, with a psychiatry specialty. I work as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist. My training included theoretical and practical experience in a variety of healthcare institutions. I have received extensive training in clinical hypnosis, brief therapy and solution oriented therapy. I work with people who suffer from difficulties in dealing with their past, present or future, and who have a hard time dealing with emotions. I work with patients and their families towards a mutually agreed upon goal. I also graduated in 2013 with a Master degree in management. I very much enjoy teaching and public speaking.
