I am a psychotherapist and certified trainer
I am a qualified psychotherapist and a trainer. I am ICEEFT Certified Therapist and Supervisor in Emotionally Focused Therapy. I work with adults and children. I provide individual psychotherapy, couple and family therapy. I provide therapy in English.
I work within integrative approach, adjusting my methods of work to the individual needs of every client. In my work with my clients I utilise my knowledge from the field of psychodynamic therapy, mentalisation and Emotionally Focused Therapy EFT.
One of the goals of therapy, especially psychodynamic therapy, is cooperating with the patient to help them better understand themselves, in particular the unconscious feelings and motivations, better understand their behaviours and symptoms, which they are not able to explain. Emotions and motivations function parallelly, which means that a person may have conflicting feelings towards a specific situation. This motivates contrary actions and results in compromise solutions. People often mentalise while trying to understand their behaviours in relation to intentions and other internal states. This relates to their ability to understand mental states, both their own and of other people. The Emotionally Focused Therapy joins the focus on individual experience of each partner to seek repetitive patterns in interactions between the patients and changing the patterns to ones more flexible and better supporting the relationship.
I have completed an accredited training at the Postgraduate School of Psychotherapy in psychodynamic modality and School of Couple and Family Therapy at the Psychoeducation Laboratory. I have also completed basic and advanced module of Mentalization Based Treatment training, acreddited by Anna Freud Center. I am a member of the Psychotherapy Section at the Polish Psychological Association and the Scientific Association of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I work under regular supervision.
Since 2017, I have been associated with the development of the Emotionally Focused Therapy community in Poland. I am the first in Poland certified by ICEEFT EFT Therapist and Supervisor. I am a member of the International Center of Excellence in Emotionally Focused Therapy (ICEEFT) in Canada and a co-founder and vice president of the Polish EFT Association (PSEFT).
For several years I worked at the Institute of Psychiatry and Neurology in Warsaw at the mood, anxiety and sleep disorders ward.
I have earned experience as a psychotherapist also at the Mazovian Psychiatric Centre “Drewnica” in Ząbki, at the 116 111 Helpline for Children and Youth provided by the Empowering Children Foundation, at Regeneracja Centre in Warsaw and at the Psychological and Pedagogical Counselling Centre No. 24 in Wilanów Warsaw district.
On a personal side, I am a wife and mother.
