What I enjoy most about my work

My wish to work systemically and become a qualified psychotherapist has a long-standing history. My enthusiasm for systemic psychotherapy emerges from my natural systemic and holistic way of thinking and awareness of how everything is interrelated. I also appreciate the value human relationships with ourselves and others have in our lives.

In my work as a psychotherapist I enjoy supporting people in finding their own internal wisdoms and agency in understanding their needs and how to meet those needs.

My interests outside of work

I have two children and I am originally from Poland. I have been a Yoga practitioner for the majority of my adult life and I'm interested in combining mental health with Yoga philosophy and practice. I am very much into nature and outdoor lifestyle.
