Having lived and worked in various parts of the world, and having had a number of careers before training to be a psychotherapist, I have a breadth and depth of experience that enables me to relate to my client’s real-world issues.
I am trilingual, speaking English, Russian and Ukrainian. My early careers were as a university researcher and then editor and I have two MA honours degrees in humanities.
In 2007 I moved to the UK and began my career as a psychotherapist, and now have a Clinical Diploma in Psychotherapy and an MSc in Psychotherapy, both from the renowned Metanoia Institute in London, accredited by Middlesex University.
As well as my practice, I run workshops for mental health professionals, primarily around stress and self-regulation. I spent some time teaching part-time at the Metanoia Institute after graduating and I now teach the Gestalt Module to students on the Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy Programme at Regent’s University, London, in the capacity of a visiting lecturer.
I have experience working with young people and set up and run a youth charity organisation in this country that promoted peer mentoring, and mental health, drug and alcohol awareness.
