What's Special About Basia?
In this episode, Marta invited to the studio Basia Janislawska - psychologist and psychotherapist who gave our listeners 5 tips that will help you to survive when starting your life from a scratch, using “moving to a new country” scenario as an example case. Basia has moved to a foreign country a year ago herself, so she was able to enrich her professional opinion with a her personal insights and reflections.
Basia has graduated from a prestigious Jagiellonian University in Krakow with a degree in psychology (2007). Soon after, she has started a practice in West Pomeranian Oncology Center in Poland, where she was providing psychological care and help for patients and their families (counseling, diagnosis, psychological support, group classes and individual psychotherapy).
Six years later Basia took on an additional education and became a certified CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) psychotherapist. As a CBT and Schema Therapist she continues working in other clinics and in 2015 she has opened her own practice, offering her services both in Poland and in Denmark. Basia is currently launching an online therapy program, so she can reach and help even more patients, regardless of where they are.
As Basia puts herself: “If you think that you are unable to cope with a difficult situation, if you need a big change in your life or you are looking for ways to unfold your potential, I am the right person to reach out to”
