I am a coach and educator, so naturally in my work I focus on the process involving young people who are just choosing their path – both personal and professional. Thanks to careful conversation, looking at what the young client is pointing out, I help to discover real and personal needs and potential, thanks to which they can create the future based on faith in their abilities and values. I love working with young people, who each time teach me a fresh perspective on life, spontaneity and uncompromise in following dreams.
