About emotions and my approach to coaching

Experiencing difficult emotions, such as anger, guilt, shame, fear and resentment is a normal part of life.

However, few people know how to process these emotions and support themselves during challenging times. As a result, people make wrong decision in life that entail long-term negative consequences.

As a psychodynamic life coach, I help my clients to alter their negative emotional state at the unconscious level. Our unconscious minds “speaks the language” of images and bodily sensations, which are metaphors of our inner world.

During our sessions we explore these images, sensations, and emotions in a safe space using Emotional-Image Techniques (EIT) and Metaphoric Associative Cards (MAC).

Together, we work to determine the underlying causes of internal conflict or suffering. During this transformative process, my clients learn to see hidden obstacles and to work through difficult emotions.

Through creative use of imagination, during our session we take action to let go of burdens, to lower tension, to relieve distress, to resolve internal conflict and to transform the emotional state.

As a result, my clients acquire a sense of inner peace, self-confidence, lightness, wholeness and clarity. They start to experience more joy in life and to make healthy decisions.

About me

My name is Victoriya (Vika) Makrishcheva. I was born in the Soviet Union and witnessed its collapse in 1991. The collapse produced massive socio-economic disparities, impoverishing millions of families, including mine. To survive, I dropped out of high-school and sold home-made slippers in a street market. This difficult experience sparked my interest in economics. Hence, after immigrating to the United States, I studied economics. During my graduate coursework, I became interested in Behavioral Economics, which examines how people make decisions. I found that emotions were a major contributor to the decision-making process, which got me interested in psychology and related disciplines. Then, I took various courses in psychology and received special training in group studies, modern psychoanalysis, psychodrama, and various types of coaching. These approaches became my toolkit of techniques for deep coaching. My main approach is emotion-image techniques (EIT) developed by Nikolay Linde.
