I was born in Poland in 1963 and came to Germany with my family at the age of eight. After attending secondary school and commercial school, I trained as an optician. I continued with my Abitur (secondary school leaving certificate), worked for several years in the construction industry, and finally studied psychology, which I completed in 1999 with a diploma. In the same year, I started a job in the clinical field. Until 2022, I worked as a graduate psychologist and psychotherapist in rehabilitation clinics, until I finally switched to self-employment in 2022.

How did I arrive at my very own, a completely different view of mental disorders? The way there was not entirely easy. You can read more about it in the reading sample of my book.
