Team of the Lodz Gestalt School – MERITORIAL CONSULTATION
I am a practicing Gestalt psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and EMDR therapist. I speak two languages, Polish and English, and practice in both. I am involved in both science and art, and I feel that both nourish me deeply. I have completed various trainings and experience life as a continuous process. I deepen my presence in different spheres of existence, which allows me to deal with quite a broad spectrum of problems that my clients bring.

I have been working as a Gestalt psychotherapist since 2004, and I am certified by EAGT and EAP. I graduated from the Metanoia Institute in London. I am also a psychologist (graduated from the University of Lodz), psycho-oncologist (completed postgraduate studies at the Jagiellonian University) and trainer (Holistic School of Trainers).

In addition to my holistic training in psychotherapy, I have undergone a number of thematic trainings including postgraduate studies in clinical neuropsychology, working with mentally ill people, sexually abused children, aggression replacement training and family mediation.

I have been working psychotherapeutically for more than a dozen years. I combine the aesthetics of Gestalt therapy with ecopsychology and deep ecology. I conduct workshops for people interested in integrating the psychotherapeutic process with work in nature.
