Jungian Analyst (IAAP)
I have completed the individual training in Jungian psychoanalysis and analytical psychology with the International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP), based in Zurich. I have studied with experienced senior analysts from all over the world. I’ve completed my training training analysis and supervision in London, UK. Also, for many years I have been deepening my competences by participating in courses and seminars organized by the Polish Association for Analytical Psychology.
I have been working in private practice for five years now. My international training and having lived in various countries enabled me to succesfully work with expats living in Poland, which became a significant part of my practice by now.
