My name is Martin Zikmund. Throughout my life, I tried several fields of study, several different work specializations, and worked for various companies, from small businesses to large multinational corporations. I traveled through a lot of countries alone. On those trips I met very interesting people from different countries and got to know their life stories. Through traveling, I got into meditation and then psychotherapy.
Now, I help people to become happier and more satisfied in life, in short, to live a better life.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Due to current coronavirus situation I’ve put in action additional hygiene measures. In person work is possible again. Work via Skype, Microsoft Teams or WhatsApp is also available.
What do I do
I do counselling, ‘psychotherapy for ‘healthy’ people’, as I call it. My work is based on a person-centered approach (PCA), Rogerian psychotherapy if you want, in which I attended 668 hours of training at Diakonie CČE. You can find out more about my private counseling practice here.
I have a business that helps companies with satisfaction and happines of their people. We achieve this through workshops, training and individual work with employees. Find out more about the company and our philosophy here.
I also started a project to help cancer patients How to Survive Cancer. Its primary goal is to become a guide for all cancer patients to helpe them improve their lives throughout this fundamental and difficult life experience. You can learn more about the project here (Czech only).
Because I enjoy writing, and because I believe a word is really stronger than a sword, I try to help people perform important changes in their lives also through my articles. Since 2015 I write blog Ječasnazměnu.cz, which is visited by about 60,000 people every year. In addition, I have been writing regularly for the Czech version of Marianne magazine for past two years, and you could also meet my articles on the pages of the journals Psychologie.cz or Psychologie Dnes.
And last but not least, I regularly attend or organize lectures, workshops, or meditation meetings for the public. You can find an overview of upcoming public events directly on the blog.
And because one does not live only by work, I spend my free time traveling, walking in nature, reading books (although I admit that mostly treatises), dancing, listening to music, meditation, floristics and spending time with my loved ones.
