It is nice to meet you!

I grew up in a charming and very cultural city in Poland, Wrocław. This is also where I began my higher education – by obtaining a Master degree in Psychology in 2009 at the University of Wrocław. During my studies I participated in many external courses and stayed one year in Cardiff, Wales, where I was a student of University of Wales Institute, Cardiff.

 

Then, like many expacts living in Brussels, I followed my second half to Belgium. After having learnt French, I continued my education by completing a 3-year-programme of Integrative Psychotherapy at Université Catholique de Louvain-la-Neuve.

 

I work in three languages- Polish, English and French– with Dutch on its way. I choose empirically – based methods which are in other words techniques that were scientifically proved to be efficient. Together with my clients, we try to understand the underlying processes of their problems and we tailor an individual treatment plan. I put a great emphasis on creating a healing therapeutic relationship with clients.
