I graduated from University of Gdansk Medical School in 1989 and moved to South Africa, where after completing internship at King Edward VIII Academic Hospital in Durban I worked in Surgery, Orthopedics and Medicine Departments before becoming a registrar and later Consultant at the Department of Psychiatry Natal University Durban.
I started my private practice in the year 2000 and throughout the following busy eighteen years I helped people suffering from vast variety of psychiatric conditions in both elective and acute settings.
I offered liaison service to colleagues from other specialties; I was involved in various research projects, professional presentations and advisory boards. I trained in EMDR, Hypnosis and Brain Working Recursive Therapy as well as Acupuncture. I regard psychiatric problems as an expression of a complex pathology involving the whole person and the environment in which the person lives.
I have a special interest and extensive experience in diagnosis and treatment of Adult ADHD and related Emotional Dysregulation as well as other co-existing conditions. I am also interested in supporting patients who suffer from psychiatric complications of PANS/PANDAS.
I moved to the Island in April 2018 and I work as a Consultant in a Community Team. In my spare time I love to travel, read and anything outdoorsy. I like meeting new people and I am told I am not a bad cook.
