I am a psychotherapist with a specialization in addiction therapy: I have been working with addicts since 2005. More than ten years of my experience have been gained at the OTU of the MSWIA hospital followed by work for an addiction treatment clinic. I have conducted several therapies in an in-depth stage, staying with my patients during further recovery process. A few years ago I started my own office,surrounding myself with people experiencing i.e. neurotic problems and depression.
While with people, I am focused on highlighting their own strengths, then helping them to understand their current situation. As a result, we start looking for a strong motivation, which is essential to change life permanently. With my support, they can successfully beat any addiction – staying away from it for the rest of their lives. I strongly believe (and proudly witness) that the life crisis may be the beginning of a new stage in life.
Working with people and helping them in dealing with mental disorders or crises is the greatest source of fulfillment for me. I am a member of PTDBT – Polish Society for Dialectical and Behavioral Therapy, whose aim is, among others spreading knowledge about the DBT trend. I work with patients with personality disorders, I also have experience in working with people with affective disorders (depression, bipolar disorder). I consider the emphasis on the development of skills and inclusion in mindfulness therapy to be a big advantage of the DBT trend. I began to deepen the knowledge about addictions initially due to my own experience, in close contact with many addicted people. Thanks to these experiences, I decided to help people struggling with this disease. I training in stress management and emotions, assertiveness, communication and interpersonal relations, addiction prevention.
At work I put emphasis on psychoeducation, development of skills and self-awareness, using exercises and homework.
I am a psychologist, psychotherapist and a certified specialist in addiction psychotherapy.

In 2014, I completed a four-year training in psychotherapy oriented at the psychodynamic trend at the Jagiellonian University, Department of Psychotherapy. I worked with addicts in the Psychiatric Hospital in Pruszków in the stationary ward and in Addiction Treatment Clinics in Warsaw.

In my work I integrate currents of psychotherapy effective in addiction therapy, anxiety, depression, neurotic and personality disorders. I also use my own experience.

Yoga and Meditation Instructor
“Like most of the practitioners, I came to the first lesson for a little out of curiosity to improve my fitness and relax. At that moment I didn’t think that yoga would become my passion, my philosophy and my life. Then, I have experienced an astonashing power of yoga, it’s wonderful ability to change seemingly invulnerable negative patterns, to awaken the body, mind and heart by opening them to new possibilities. Now I know that through everyday practice we can all develop our fundamental goodness and love in ourselves. “
In yoga, she is fascinated by discovering the logic of movement, the power of breath and the possibilities and awareness of our own body. She thinks that yoga is for everyone without any limitations – every person has their own body, just just need to listen to it and enjoy the yoga moments with patience, chill and pure joy.
Because everything is in yoga!
Because yoga organizes life and space!
It gives you an understanding of the World and Yourself!
Yourself and the World.
It does not impose anything!
It discovers what you are ready for before you!
All you have to do is open your eyes!
