Katarzyna Banaszak

Psychologowie Wrocław Katarzyna BanaszakI am a psychologist and psychotherapist training in cognitive and behavioral therapy. I graduated in psychology with a clinical specialism from the University of Opole and I am currently undergoing psychotherapeutic training at the Crescentia School of Psychotherapy. I am a member of the Polish Society of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy. I also completed a postgraduate degree in the pedagogical field as well as clinical neuropsychology and neuropsychological diagnosis at SWPS University.

I have completed numerous therapeutic courses, among others, MSBR Mindfulness methods, crisis intervention, scheme therapy. I have also taken part in art therapy workshops and have had the opportunity to conduct such classes myself. I use resources from classical cognitive and behavioral therapy, while enriching it with mindfulness and drawing on the third wave of cognitive-behavioral therapy.

I am constantly working on my psychotherapeutic skills by participating in trainings and I subject my work regularly to supervision. I mainly deal with the therapy of adolescents and adults. I run workshops in primary and secondary schools as part of psychoprophylactic activities. I am happy to work therapeutically with youngsters from 16 years of age.

In my work, I try to combine knowledge and working methods to best adapt them to the difficulties reported by the client. In individual contact with the client, it is important to me that everyone can feel understood and accepted. The most important thing for me is that the person who comes forward with problems can feel safe in the therapeutic relationship. If you are thinking about undertaking therapy, remember that regardless of how big or small you feel your difficulties are, there is a place for each one in therapy. The main goal we set together in our first meetings is usually to improve quality of life, which will manifest itself over time across various aspects of life. The most rewarding thing about my work is the accounts of clients who, when they come to sessions, report on their progress, the changes they have made in their lives, and the differences that their loved ones notice.

 

Carl Gustav Jung and his life achievements has brought me the most psychological inspiration I have had in my life, let me quote his work, which can be an inspiration for your own therapeutic experience. “The reason for evil in the world is that people are unable to tell their stories.”
