I’m a psychologist and psychotherapist with 13 years of experience in providing psychotherapy.
I graduated in psychology from the University of Warsaw (2003) and then completed four-year post-graduate training at the Gestalt Therapy Institute in Cracow (2008). Since then, through further trainings, workshops and conferences, led by both Polish and foreign teachers, I have continued to keep abreast of contemporary concepts in Gestalt therapy.
The major goal of Gestalt therapy is, simply put, helping the client to develop awareness of themselves. This awareness helps them restore their choicefulness in responding to the world. As a Gestalt therapist, I put much importance on developing a lively and transparent therapeutic relationship, which is a part of the therapy itself and creates a place for exploring the client’s style of relating to others as well. Thus, therapy is a chance to do something different when what you are used to doing doesn't work very well for you.
I work with people seeking authentic relationships, closeness and clear boundaries, personal growth and a meaningful life. I also have experience working with people struggling with depression, anxiety, personality disorders, low self-esteem, midlife crisis and difficulties in adjusting to life changes.
The therapeutic work starts with 1 to 3 consultations, where we clarify the problem and discuss the terms and conditions of the psychotherapy. If both - the client and the therapist agree on working together, we will then meet regularly in 50-minute sessions on the same day and at the same time each week. On average, the entire therapy process takes from half a year to 2-3 years.
I charge 150 PLN for an individual consultation / session.
