Archetypal Psychology

Guidance & Integration

Archetypes are powerful models for personal transformations and working with inner feminininty / masculinity. Let's explore them together through art and body, movement and self-reflexion, Tarot and methaforical cards. Let's discover and intergrate their Power and resources, especially if it is your Shadow, ready to be exposed...

Art & Dance sessions

Exercises in small groups

I believe that dance is a means between the soul and the body, such as art therapy and other arts. That is, through dance and art therapy, I learned to heal myself and develop my personality. And I'll teach you too. Only OFFLINE/ LIVE!
In art and dance sessions we learn how to discover, handle and inscrease our own Power - both physical and psychological.

Tribal Dance Teaching

Courses & Workshops

4 years ago I got acquainted with the very special style of dancing and living. It encourages both collaboration and individuality, respect to traditions and freedom for self-expression. It is called Tribal Style Dance and it is danced worldwide.
Since 2017 I am proudly teaching European women Tribal Style Dancing in Nitra, Slovakia. Join our group!

The Hero's Journey

Personal Development

It starts one day from a Call you cannot resist. Inner or outer challenge for better job / living conditions / family relations or simply undefined wish to change your life. Its Path is not strict and narrow, but full of adventures. And the reward is waiting for you at the end. Develop your personal Myth & Power with my delicate help and guidance.

Let’s get introduced! Who am I?

My name is Svetlana Groiss. I was born in Russia and lived there for 25 beautiful years, worked as Marketing Specialist and CEO, Business Referent and Event organizer… until the Path calls me. It was a Call for a Hero (in Jungian Psychology terms), one can’t simply resist it. In search for a new home I’ve been living in Middle East and now living with my family in Slovakia, Europe (eventually). In search for a Self, I’ve started academic studies in Psychology and earned Bachelor’s Degree in Counselling. At the moment my education and private practice continues in Nitra, Slovakia as well as online counseling for individuals.

I am glad to help you to:
  1. Feel the contact with the Inner Power and secure support (stability) to resolve the external situations or conflicts (both inside and outside);
  2. Understand yourself and your needs “here and now”, return the taste of life and its fullness;
  3. Work out negative feelings and emotions (difficult to admit and deal with) and transform them into your Power – working with a personal Shadow and other archetypes;
  4. Bring clarity and harmony in the relationship with the Partner, starting with the relationship with yourself;
  5. Explore your archetypal femininity / masculinity models and intergate them into real life…
Methods and tools I prefer:

Art-therapy, dance and body-oriented exercises, Jungian psychology (archetypes: Anima, Animus, Shadow, Hero, etc.), initiation therapy, Process Work, Tarot and shamanic rituals, intergrative approach.

    is always here and now

    I am a psychologist and I like to help people to live in harmony with oneself and society (the world). I learned to accept myself and develop my talent for the benefit of others. I integrate different cultures and best practices, creating a unique approach to work.

    I believe that dance is a means between the soul and the body, such as art therapy and other kind of arts an crafts. That is why I learned to heal myself and develop my personality through constant process of art and dance exercising.

    Be brave to dive deeper in yourself and discover your Power and Creativity - ability to create. Or let's do it together... Here and now.
