Due to the announced state of the COVID-19 pandemic and the recommendations of sanitary experts and the Polish Psychological Association and the Polish Psychiatric Association, until the epidemic is under control, it is suggested that consultations, psychotherapy sessions and psychological assistance take place online via tele-therapy means.

We recommend such sessions to our patients and people thinking about undertaking psychological help. We work on Zoom, Skype, Meet, Hangouts, Whatsapp and other platforms in order to provide the best experience possible.
