About me

I’m a professional mental health specialist with nearly ten years of experience in forensic psychiatry in Switzerland, including patients with civil and criminal charges, as well as other mental disorders.

During my professional career, I have worked in fields such as paranoid/hebephrenic schizophrenia, borderline, antisocial personality and hyperkinetic disorder. Addtionally, alcohol dependence syndrome, harmful use of opioids, cannabinoids and cocaine, and severe dependence on multiple substances. Anxiety, Panic, Bipolar, Mood,  Somatic Stress, Dissociative and Eating disorders. Depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Suicide.

I can also pride myself as a speaker at international Forensic Science, Psychiatry, Mental Health, Neurology and Neuroscience conferences.

I hold a Degree of Master of Science in Human Resources Management from the faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Liverpool; I conducted a research project on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental condition of bank professionals in Switzerland and a Bachelor’s degree by Medical faculty. Fluent in English, German and Polish.

I am currently a student in the Bachelor’s degree course in Psychological Studies at the University Institute in Bern in Switzerland.

As part of my work, I try to discover what is hidden in the minds of people who commit the most various offences—understanding the dark sides of the human psyche and why it is essential to deepen knowledge in this field. How fundamental is the analysis of the human mind and the insight into their personal lives? And what measures should be taken so that acts of violence do not recur in the future, as well as how to read such signs among potential criminals.
