QUALIFICATIONS AND PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIP
I have been working in people-oriented professions in a variety of contexts for the last 10 years. My roles included child supervision at summer camps, tutoring, teaching, training and coaching. Since I enjoy diversity I completed my M.Sc. in Biotechnology through an individual mode of studies that allowed me to attend classes at Poznan University of Life Sciences (Poland), University of Sheffield, University of Manchester and Agrocampus Ouest – Centre de Rennes (France). I worked as an English language tutor in France and in Poland which led me to completing my training as a Science teacher specialised in vocational and technical subjects. Subsequently, I taught the International Baccalaureate Curriculum in an international school in Poland. My need for adventure and diversity brought me to London where I started to work with challenging young people in a variety of settings, such as schools for students with emotional and behavioural difficulties and pupil referral units.
I became fascinated with human development and I decided to train as a coach using Transactional Analysis as a theoretical base. I attended my courses at TA WORKS Institute in Oxford where I completed the Level 7 Diploma for Professional Executive Coaches and Leadership Mentors course and I was accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management. I also hold a Counselling Diploma (People Practitioner) in Transactional Analysis and I have Qualified Teacher Status since 2009.
I attend appropriate supervision and I am a registered member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (www.bacp.co.uk) working towards accreditation. I adhere to their ethical framework. I am also a member of the International Transactional Analysis Association (https://www.itaaworld.org) working towards becoming a Certified Transactional Analyst.
