I graduated from Odessa State Medical University (Ukraine) and qualified as a General Practitioner in 1986. In 1992, I completed a postgraduate course at the Institute of Gerontology Academy of Medical Science of USSR (Kyiv), and was awarded a Ph.D. in the physiology and molecular biology of stress in ageing.
Later on, I studied psychotherapy at Kyiv’s State Academy of Postgraduate Medical Education, and then was qualified as a Transpersonal Psychotherapist by the European Transpersonal Association (EUROTAS). Psychosomatic medicine and psycho-oncology became my main area of practice. Since 2002, I has given many lectures, workshops and private sessions throughout European countries, and also presented my work at a number of European and World conferences and congresses on Transpersonal psychology and psychotherapy.
I am the founder and head of the Center for Psychotherapy , Psychosomatics and Psycho-oncology Expio in Kyiv, Ukraine. I am the author of the book “Carcinogenic Mind. The Psychosomatic Mechanisms of Cancer”, the first Ukrainian manual on psycho-oncology, also published in English. I am also the first and the only one psychotherapist in Ukraine who use the ketamine-assisted transpersonal psychotherapy in work with depressive and cancer patients.
How I work with clients
I use general and transpersonal psychotherapy, transcranial electric brain stimulation, herbal therapy and ketamine-assisted therapy.
