Monika Deasy

Psychologist, psychotherapist

Approach: Gestalt therapy


Masters in Psychology and educational psychologist. She completed a course in Gestalt therapy at the Gestalt Institute of Ireland. She works as a psychotherapist in the U-Clinic. She is IACP accredited. Gestalt therapy is a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes personal responsibility and focuses upon the individual's experience in the present moment, the therapist–client relationship, the environmental and social contexts of a person's life, and the self-regulating adjustments people make as a result of their overall situation. Monika says, "Every single one of us at a different stage in their life go through something difficult. It is especially painful when we live abroad and we don't have enough support. Going to therapy may just be the best solution and a place of support."

Marcin Bogucki

Humanistic approach

Psychotherapy is mixed with theoretical and practical approaches of different forms of psychotherapy, such as the Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) or Person-Centred Therapy (PCT). He believes that every person is an individual being and we all need different types of therapy.
