Murai, Zita, MD


My main field of interest is anxiety and mood disorders (panic, generalised anxiety, somatoform disorders, depression, bipolar affect disorders). In my work, a holistic approach is fundamental. I find it important to treat the psychological symptoms and to reveal the cause ofany somatic / physical diseases during my work. As a psychotherapist, I can be a helpful “wayfarer” in pathfinding, seeking the answers for the individual’s question, overcoming their various problems, difficulties in life-style, self-assessment problems, obstructions in life situations, loss / mourning, crisis situations and relationship conflicts – if the individual can overcome the prejudice against seeking help from a psychiatrist for a problem.
