This year in my Logotherapy and Existential-Analytical Psychotherapy course we have started the clinical part of the education. Spring modules were on anxiety. The September 2022 module was mostly dedicated to depression, how it is viewed in existential analysis. The November 2022 module will be on treatment of depression.

Looking forward to joining the group in-person in London!

How do I manage all of the above and a few things that were left out? I love working with my version of the bullet journal and I also follow my own medicine regarding taking the creative breaks.

I am available for giving workshops on:

  • Balanced Time Perspective and its role in Mental Health
  • Futurization: Images of the Future and Future Scenarios to develop sustainable attitudes and behavior
  • How to deal with culture shock
  • Using creativity as a resource.

I would be thrilled to develop a tailored talk / workshop regarding time, creativity and your field of interest.

On average, in 2020 I walked 4,3 km / day (longest walk 40km), and in 2021 – 4,7 km / day (longest walk 30 km). In January 2022 I walked on average 6,4 km / day.
