Ass. Prof. Nikola Atanassov


I offer supervision for professionals practicing analytically-oriented psychotherapy who wish to deepen their knowledge about the psychoanalytic understanding of clinical cases. This involves long-term single casework with an emphasis on the transference – counter-transference relationship, as well as consultations about specific difficulties met during psychotherapeutic work.

I offer both individual and group supervision. In group supervision, the cases are presented in front of the group so that the supervisee can get feedback not only from the supervisor, but from all other participants as well.

I became a training and supervising analyst of the Bulgarian Psychoanalytic Society (study group of the International Psychoanalytic Association – IPA) in 2012. At present there are 5 Bulgarian psychoanalysts holding this position; they are qualified to conduct training analyses according to the standards of the IPA.
