About me

I am a psychologist and cognitive-behavioural therapist. I am an Associate Professor at the Institute of Psychology, University of Wroclaw. I am head of the Nutritional Psychology Unit as well as EAT Lab (Eating Behavior Laboratory)  at the University of Wroclaw.

I was a laureate of the “START” scholarship for young scientists of the Foundation for Polish Science (FNP) and a French Government scholarship holder.  I have been invited to deliver guest lectures at foreign universities (Paul Verlaine University – Metz, University of Nantes, University of Bordeaux, University of Pavia, Stanford University).

I am the author of over 100 scholarly publications (in Polish, English and French), a member of the Editorial Board for “BMC Psychiatry” (section Eating Disorders), “Eating and Weight Disorders” and “Journal of Health Psychology” and a member of the Reviewer Board for “Nutrients” as well. I am a guest editor of the Special Issue Psychology of Eating: Understanding of Eating Behaviours, “International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health”.

I am experienced in the therapeutic work with patients with eating disorders and their families. I finished a specialised, four-year training in the cognitive-behavioural therapy of adult disorders in the Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy Centre (CTPB) in Warsaw in cooperation with Oxford Cognitive Therapy Centre (OCTC). I have also completed formations in the Ericksonian therapy in the Polish Erickson Institute. In addition, I have finished the Postgraduate Course in Art Therapy of the Polish Erickson Institute and the Polish Committee of the International Society for Education through Art.
