We all from time to time face life´s challenges – hardships, disappointments, stress, loss or change – that can strongly influence how we feel, think and behave in our daily lives. Some can be too stressful and overwhelming to go through alone. Whatever life´s difficulties come your way, you do not need to face them on your own: we can look at them and work through them together.

My name is František Cihlář, I am a psychotherapist, counselor, mentor, personal development guide and relationship and communication specialist. For more than 20 years I have guided individual and couple clients (international as well as Czech) who have been facing various personal, relationship, and work-related issues and have been dealing with different life challenges and pressures or pursuing personal development. My clients work through a plethora of topics such as partner and other relationships, wanting to build and maintain fulfilling relationships. Many deal with intercultural struggles, problems associated with life in a foreign culture and emotional stressors related to relocation and loneliness. Some experience burnout and want to learn how to slow down the rat-race they find themselves in, regain a sense of meaning and purpose in their relationships or activities, or find a passion for living again.

Whether you do not feel happy or content in your life, something troubles you, need to regain a sense of meaning, bring more clarity into your current situation or find a new life´s direction, I am offering you my assistance. I can be your guide, your companion in the complex maze of relationships and uncertainties, as you work through overcoming challenges, building relationships, and recovering from life’s setbacks.

My work in based on Carl Rogers´s PCA approach. During our consultations, my primary role is as of a guide. Together, as we walk through your current situation, we look for new insights into the often complex and difficult-to solve issues. I generally do not give advice in terms of what to do or not to do and how to proceed. Instead, as we work together, face and explore your needs, worries, desires and difficulties together, I can help you reach your own independent decision that you discover within yourself and guide you as you find a firm ground and self-confidence again. I will be your attentive companion on this journey.

Besides psychotherapy work, I am also interested in the mindfulness-based approach and conscious work with the mind, non-religious meditation practices, world cultures, history and its connections to our present time, and the Enneagram typology, among others. I am a parent, a grandparent and a foster parent.

I offer to you my life experiences, my expertise, and my guidance. It is highly important for me to provide my clients with a very safe space, comfortable and confidential environment, attentive listening, empathy, kindness and respect.

My clients come from very diverse cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds.

I offer therapy sessions in person (Prague 6, near Hradčanská metro station) as well as online. I work in English, Czech and Russian.

Transformative healing

I speak with true honesty when I say I'd recommend his sessions to everyone in need of a wise ear and an open heart for guidance. I discovered a space to share about my anxious states, partnership worries and stress, - a space that Frantisek filled with clear attention, warmth and sharp remarks.

I turned to Mr. Frantisek for help one year ago, when I found myself in a very difficult situation. Postpartum depression followed by COVID quarantine forced me to spend all my time at home with my four children and led to my critical condition. Thanks to therapy, I was able to overcome this crisis, to rediscover confidence in myself and my abilities and to find strength for my own development. I am also grateful to Mr. Frantisek for... read more

Good listener, help with stress, relationships and procrastination

Reviewed by Stan B. 03.03.2022
František has been guiding me in therapy on and off for several years now. Initially, I sought support from him with stress management, which comes from my work in the social work field. Eventually the topics of the sessions extended to my personal topics as well, such as relationships with friends, colleagues and family, and then also to my avoidance and constant postponement of certain work and study duties. During our sessions I speak most... read more
