When I think about what I accomplished in my life, the faces of hundreds of my clients pass before my mind’s eye. I remember them coming to me during all these years, with hope and trust in their eyes, sharing their stories, their pain and trauma, and believing that I can help them take control of their lives. It’s a sacred mission, and one I do with the greatest respect: as a medical doctor, as a psychotherapist and as one of them who has experienced life’s struggles, and emerged from them even more compassionate and stronger.
I have worked for 38 years as a medical doctor in a rehabilitation clinic, and for 25 years as a psychotherapist (most of the time I had both jobs at once). What a unique opportunity to observe the people going through their processes of change! It never ceases to amaze me how some people can grow through adversity. They are a continuous source of inspiration for my writing. In The Core Change Institute, my nonprofit private psychotherapeutic institution, I am offering an original holistic therapeutic program for recovery from behavioral addictions and trauma.
I also served as board member of Europa Donna European Coalition, the association of breast cancer survivors. I have been performing on international medical conferences, speaking about doctor-patient relationships and behavioral addictions. For eight years I was answering the reader’s questions about relationship problems in a women’s health monthly magazine Viva. I conducted a large number of workshops and lectures, speaking about behavioral addictions and childhood trauma. More than 3000 clients have so far participated in my original recovery program for behavioral addictions.
