Monika Gendek at the Lodz Gestalt School | Coach | Supervisor

We are happy to introduce another person who joins the Lodz Gestalt School team on a permanent basis!

A few words from Monica:

Working in the area of deep encounter with self and others called to me many years ago. My curiosity about the invisible, the intuitive, subject to alchemical transformation through contact, led me along a spiral path to study psychology and psychotherapy. I became enthralled with the creative dimension of Gestalt philosophy and practice. Later in my academic activities, I focused on the phenomenon of parentification, professional burnout and body image in the helping professions. I co-edited the Gestalt psychotherapy journal ‘Phenomenon’.

I have been working psychotherapeutically for more than a dozen years. I combine the aesthetics of Gestalt therapy with ecopsychology and deep ecology. I run workshops for people interested in integrating the psychotherapeutic process with working in nature. I am interested in the psychological phenomena of the late Anthropocene and the quality of contact with the ‘wild self’. I co-create original vessel projects for collective maturation and the practice of conscious femininity. I am involved in community projects related to climate activism and supporting therapy culture in building practices for health. I lead supervision meetings for people from different therapeutic modalities. My intention is an embodied practice where the deeply healing quality is engaged presence.

Monika! We are extremely happy for you and welcome to the team! 😊
