Meet Paulina, an integrative counsellor of many talents and passions. Paulina holds a Bachelor's degree in Humanities, with a focus on philology and book editing, which she earned in Cracow, Poland. During her studies, Paulina also explored her interests in philosophy and anthropology.
Her education and experiences have led her down a unique path, which includes living in the UK and Singapore, and home-schooling her two children using the Montessori approach to early childhood education. Her dedication to learning on human nature and human development led her to complete a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology in Singapore. During this program, Paulina dove deep into psychological theories and perspectives, counselling skills, methods, and ethics, as well as abnormal and developmental psychology, crisis intervention, and counselling children, among other topics.
Currently, Paulina is pursuing a Master of Science degree in Psychology at the University of Exeter, UK, to deepen her counselling knowledge even further. Upon graduation in May 2024, she will obtain her provisional psychology registration.
Her multicultural outlook and appreciation for diversity is evident in all aspects of her life. With many years of experience in customer service and teaching assistant roles in multiple countries she was exposed to people from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds.
She is a keen volunteer working at the Something New App based in Singapore where she utilises a text-based solution-focused counselling for adolescents and young adults. She also volunteers as a CARES4me support worker at ARCVic based in Melbourne where she guides people through recovery from anxiety and anxiety-related disorders.
Paulina enjoys photography, nature walks, mindfulness meditation, reading books, and engaging in arts and DIY projects. Her passion for life, learning, and helping others is evident in all that she does, and she is sure to make a positive impact on those around her.
