Anna Żurawska - Zach


I have completed a Master’s Degree in Psychology (Jagiellonian University) and I am certified cognitive-behavioral therapist (PTTPB certificate number 1217). I was trained in cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy  at the Ter-Cognitiva Center in Krakow (Center recommended by the Polish Society for Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy). I have also spent one year studying Psychology at Nottingham Trent University in Great Britain. I am a member of the Polish Society for Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy. I work under supervision and I constantly expand my professional competences.When working with a client, we are a team, and I attach great importance to our relationships. It is also very important for me to approach the reported difficulties individually in order to properly adjust the techniques and therapeutic interventions.
