About me

 

I am a psychologist and a psychotherapist. I graduated form the Psychology Faculty at the Warsaw University. I also completed studies in Medical Psychology and Psychiatry at the Universitat Autonoma in Barcelona and a complete training cycle in Families Therapy at the Polish Ericksonian Institute in Łódź. I am a cognitive-behavioral therapist certified by the Polish Society for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (certificate no 192). I have a vast clinical experience acquired at the Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology, the Anxiety Disorders Unit at the MSWiA Hospital, the Nowowiejski Hospital and a private practice. Apart from working as a therapist, I also teach, among others, at the Medical University of Warsaw, at the University of Social Science and Humanities (SWPS, Wroclaw Campus) and at the Psychology Faculty at the University of Warsaw. I also teach courses on cognitive behavioral therapy and therapy and development foccused workhops. I am a member of Polish Psychological Association and Polish Association for Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy. In my work I mostly employ the ericksonian and cognitive-behavioral approach.I feel that I need to grow constantly and be able to use different approaches and helping methods in order to adjust the therapy according to the client’s needs. I improve my skills participating in conferences, workshops and training courses. Currently I am taking part in a four-year training in the field of Bioenergetic Analysis (therapy that combines work with the body and the mind by Alexander Lowen) accredited by the Florida Society Bioenergetics Analysis.

I submit my therapeutic work to regular supervision by Polish Psychological Association and Polish Psychiatric Association certified supervisors.
