Traumatherapist, child and adolescent psychologist. Experience in counseling since 2013.
Diploma of Tavriysky Christian Institute in Kherson, Ukraine. 1,5 years of practice in the rehabilitation center for sportsmen where clients were rehabilitating after traumas both physically and psychologically. I have a private practice.
Before I came to the job of psychologist I was a servant in the special police department from 1992 to 1998. Already there I was concerned about burnout of personnel in service and asking myself: why don`t they have psychologists in the power structures? Due to a gunshot wound of my leg I had to resign from service and went to the Tavriysky Christian Institute to the faculty of Christian Education.
After graduation I stayed at the Institute in the position of teacher. Here again I observed that many problems had personal problems (everyone had his type of problems, adaptation difficulties, relationship boys-girls, stress caused by exams and tests). Combatants from the war in Eastern Ukraine require psychological aid and refugees as well. So I firmly decided to do psychological counseling and work with PTSD.
From November 2014 to December 2016 I worked as a counselor for combatants and refugees in a church in Melitopol.
I study permanently.
