The same goes for me: as a child, I was uncontrollable, neurotic, and prone to various addictions.
I didn’t care about the way I lived my life. I got into fights, damaged other people's cars, cheated and lied. I myself didn’t understand why I was doing that. I couldn’t comprehend it.
I had the most severe addictions and sicknesses which people usually cannot cope with. I just couldn’t look at my actions from the outside.
I put up with the fact that I wouldn’t have a normal life like everyone else. But one day, I took a projective test where I had to describe animals. It turned out that I was describing myself, the way I was – that’s how I managed to see myself from the outside.
It felt like a strike of lightning, I began to feel myself, hear myself. And the voice inside responded: “Anton, you can do more, you can do better”. Thus, I gradually got rid of addictions and in 2008 I got involved in psychology.
In 2014, I became a psychologist, and in 2018 a clinical psychologist. Since 2016 I had been helping people, but I didn’t resolve the biggest issue – the issue of my health.
Since the age of 6, I suffered from stammering and at the age of 27 I made up my mind to deal with it: I read books, studied various techniques, sought professional medical help. At some point, I was looking for a psychologist who could help me with this problem, and I found not just a psychologist but a specialist in psychosomatics. You can guess what happened next, can’t you?
When I witnessed how this method worked on me, I realized that I can combine my knowledge and help people change mentally as well as physically.

My students and clients know what particular stress activates this or that symptom: from common cold to oncology diseases.
