I have offered therapeutic counseling since 2010. I use knowledge gained during 4 years training in mindfulness psychotherapy - Satitherapy. It is a humanistic psychotherapy based on empathy and acceptance of the client and healing effects of mindfulness. I have undergone Foundation training in Process Work (known also as Process Oriented Psychology - POP), which encompasses a broad range of psychotherapeutic, personal growth and group process applications. Process Work emphasis awareness – both the person’s and the facilitator’s – rather than any specific set of interventions. I have completed training in Individual systemics. I am also finding inspiration in over 40 courses and workshops in a variety of body work styles (including bioenergetics, biosynthesis, shiatsu), work with inner parts of the psyche, psychodrama and theatre improvisation, and shamanic journeys. I like to offer my clients possibility to express their feelings in psychodrama or art therapy.
During my long term stays in the UK and Germany I was able to experience different studying, working and living environments, therefore it is not difficult for me to understand the situation of foreigners and expats when meeting them as clients. I have also been inspired by eastern arts and cultures when traveling to remote places in Indonesia, Thailand or Sri Lanka.
Originally, interest in the functioning of society brought me to the study of economics at the Faculty of Social Sciences at Charles University in Prague, where I was also taking psychological, sociological and anthropological courses. After my studies I joined a non-profit environmental consultancy where I have worked for more than 10 years. I have spent a few years on business positions in a large corporation in the Czech Republic and Germany.
I was born in Bratislava - the capital of Slovakia and moved to Prague in 1991. I became a foreigner overnight in 1993 when the Czechoslovakia divided in two countries. Now enjoying Czech citizenship.
