My name is Ileana, I am originally from Russia and reside in Prague. I am fluent in English and also offer counselling and therapy in Russian. I have lived in three different countries and have been an expat for over 7 years. This experience helps me to provide a more culturally sensitive approach and gain a better understanding of clients' needs and experiences.
I hold an MSc in Theory and Practice in Clinical Psychology and a dual bachelor's degree in psychology. I strive to continually advance my capabilities and stay up to date with the latest research in the field to ensure I deliver the best care based on well-researched methods and theories. For more information about my education and qualifications, please see the Education section.
I have always wondered "why" and had a strong belief that there is always a reason, a cause, for our behaviours. That desire to understand and learn led me to seek an education in the field of psychology and use my knowledge and skills to help others. Being a humanist, I have faith and hope in humanity, perceiving us as good and capable of change. I chose this path because I care deeply about people and genuinely want to help them find their own way to a happy and fulfilling life.
