My name is Marta and I am a polish psychologist with a PhD in psychology, living in the Netherlands.
Psychology and mental wellbeing has never been just something I do for work, it has been and will always be a great fascination!
In my work with clients I use Polyvagal Theory, Solution Focused Therapy, Brainspotting and auditory interventions like Safe and Sound Protocol or iLS Focus. Together with the client, I search for best possible way to improve mental health, promote personal development, find balance and enhance the skills to cope with daily challenges.
In recent years, I deepened my knowledge on twice exceptionality, giftedness, high sensitivity, autism, ADHD, and above all, anxiety and trauma. I completed courses that gave me extensive skills and knowledge to coach families and work individually with teens and adults that experience challenges with the above.
Next to my counselling work, I am also a research team member of dr Porges working on application of Safe & Sound Protocol for improving well being of patients with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
