Oliver Wendell Holmes

Magdalena Frecer



I believe that thanks to my therapeutic experiences and education, I have acquired a truly complex framework through which I perceive our life destinies. It is always a moving experience for me to look into the richness of our inner lives and to witness the inner journey of my clients to their essence, health and self-realization.


I am a psychiatrist and a certified psychotherapist. After university studies and specialization, I was looking for a deeper view of medical knowledge about our psyche. I felt that it was not enough to reduce mental problems to diagnoses and solve them with the help of drugs. That is why I started psychotherapeutic training in Gestalt therapy that views the human condition holistically, that is, as a whole – without dividing into body and soul. Gestalt approach invites the client to be a partner in the process of therapy (“I am me and you are you”) – the client is an expert on himself and I, as a therapist, can accompany him on the way to him/her inner self, but I am in no way superior to him/her. Each of us has a natural and healthy regulation within us, we just sometimes need to restore contact with it through therapy. This is the basic premise of my thinking about therapeutic work.
