“The world needs new ecological wisdom and the honoring of earth and body that the Divine Feminine implants. It needs to embrace the consciousness of we, the image of the web, the interconnection and interrelatedness that are central to women experience and that Sacred Feminine experience only deepens. And finally, the world needs the vision and courage to dismantle hierarchies of power. It needs to be faced with its injustices, to hear voices that speak for the voiceless and powerless. It needs conscious women. Conscious men, too.”

Sue Monk Kidd

About me

I am a social psychologist, Jungian analyst and a Swiss licensed psychotherapist. I grew up in Poland and have lived in Switzerland for 13 years, and I am a mother of a young son. My private practice is in Zurich.

 

I work with adults from diverse communities. Many of the people I work with are expatriates struggling with adjustment to the demands of Swiss culture and rules without neglecting their own cultural background.
I also consult with parents on the building of  positive and healthy relationships to their children, while also focusing on the everyday challenges of meeting their children`s needs without disregarding their own as people, parents, spouses, or partners.

My special interests lie mainly in the fields of:

  • Feminine spirituality and the feminist spiritual consciousness.

  • Patriarchy and its’ influence on our feminine and masculine identities.

  • Relationship dynamics between couples.

  • The awareness of body and its’ non-verbal language in the analytic setting.

  • The various forms of expression (painting, moving, writing, etc.) needed to engage the emotional life of a person.

While maintaining my practise, being a full-time mother, I am also a member of ISAP organising committee for the Jungian Odyssey, an annual conference and retreat in Analytical Psychology.

“It was when I stopped searching for home within others

and lifted the foundations of home within myself

I found there were no roots more intimate

than those between a mind and body

that have decided to be whole.”


Rupi Kaur

“Psyche and body are not separate entities but one and the same life.”
