Andrzej Gabiński, MA

Certified addiction treatment psychotherapist (certification no. 396)

“I have worked with people struggling with addictions and their families since 15.06.1989. I have been continuously expanding my knowledge base and learning applicable skills during that time. My principle is “Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life.” Psychotherapy and working with people have given me the satisfaction, strength and respect for another human being. I believe that what makes a good addiction treatment centre, is not only the knowledge passed to a patient, but also the overall atmosphere created by people employed at such an institution – the latter, in particular, encourages patients to appreciate the gift of sobriety.”

Adam Stawiarski, MA

I have dealt with addictions and family relations for many years. I continuously take part in psychology trainings and workshops, broadening my understanding of this field. I am experienced in working with addicted people and their relatives.

My core principles when working with another person are honesty, respect, acceptance and kindness – my goal is that every willing person finds freedom from addictions. I am convinced that every person has that strength within!

I am a graduate in psychology, specialising in health and well-being. Since, however, my thirst of understanding human psyche and behaviours remains unfulfilled, I carry on studying. Currently, I am in my final year of II-degree clinical psychology at the University of Lower Silesia.

Lila Papierowska, MA

Special Attention Needs Guidance Counsellor and a certified addiction treatment psychotherapist

My professional interests involve motivational dialogue, and I am in favour of using this technique in therapy. I am fascinated by the fact that this method allows recovery even in the most serious cases.

I am of the opinion that every person is capable of self-improvement throughout their whole life. We can become wiser, stronger, more courageous, content and free. In my work, I focus specifically on facilitating self-development in my patients.

The motivation of our clients to change their lives is of particular importance – this motivation is the starting point to reach a new, wonderful stage of life.

Wiktoria Sieniuć

4th year psychology student at Wrocław University

Even though I am at the beginning of my career as a psychologist or a future psychotherapist, I cannot complain about the lack of commitment and enthusiasm. I have been gaining my experience from patients with whom I work on a daily basis. In return, I get involved in my work as much as I can – this includes allowing emotions and encouraging my patient’s genuine “self” to reveal itself.
