Who I am
My name is Agnieszka Kulczycka-Dopiera and I am a psychologist and an accredited psychotherapist of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I obtained my Master’s degree in Psychology at the Faculty of Psychology at the University of Warsaw. Then I completed postgraduate studies in Psychological Diagnosis in Clinical Practice at the SWPS University, and a year later doctoral studies at the Institute of Psychology at the University of Gdańsk. Due to personal circumstances, I decided to move to Ireland, where I took a Psychotherapy Training Course at IICP College in Dublin. At the same time, I started working at ‘My Mind’ Psychotherapy Center.
When living abroad I gained a deeper insight into cross-cultural psychology and because of that, I was able to understand the challenges of emigration and cultural differences. This was also the area of interest for my doctoral dissertation, which I defended in 2019. For the last few years, I have been living back in Poland and before I opened my own practice, I worked at the ‘Dialog’ Therapy Center. I see my job as a source of satisfaction and fulfilment. In addition, I draw my energy from relationships with family and friends. I also love physical activity, nature and having time for myself.
How I work
In my work, I use an integrative approach, based mainly on the humanistic and cognitive-behavioural theories. I attach great importance to the therapeutic relationship and elements of working with the body, primarily with the breath. I do my best to adapt my approach to the person who comes to psychotherapy and their needs. I participate in regular group and individual supervision meetings, and I follow the Code of Ethics for Psychologists by the Polish Psychological Association.Qualifications and work experience
- I offer individual therapy in person and online. I work with adults and teenagers who are over 17 years old.
- I provide therapy in English and Polish (I obtained my training in psychotherapy in Ireland and I attend my individual supervision in English).
- I work with people who suffer from emotional difficulties but also with people who want to work on their personal development. I am particularly experienced in the areas of culture shock, adaptive difficulties, anxiety, and depression.
- If you have more questions or doubts, I invite you for a 15-minute call or an online meeting.
- The therapy appointment is usually 50 minutes. It costs 180 PLN (in Polish) and 230 PLN (in English).
Usually, the first three appointments are of consultative nature. Their purpose is to get to know each other as well as gather information and define the goal of the therapeutic work. The psychotherapy appointment usually takes place once a week at a specific time and date.
What is psychotherapy?
Psychotherapy is a process in which a person can get to know and understand themselves better in order to be able to live a more fulfilling and conscious life. Such a goal can be achieved by delving into one’s thoughts, emotions, behaviours, or relationships with oneself and with others with the kind and attentive support of the therapist. This creates the space to work on what does not serve us in order to have a greater impact on our life.
In the process of psychotherapy, the therapeutic relationship is of particular importance. Most traumas or difficult experiences occur in relationships that are important to us. Psychotherapy allows us to work on them in a safe and friendly therapeutic relationship. After the first meeting with a psychotherapist, it is worth asking yourself a few questions: How did I feel with this person? Can I trust them? Have I felt listened to and respected? Am I able to open up to this person? What qualifications does this person have?
