Pediatric Physiotherapist

It has always been my dream to work with kids, thus I began my professional career as a Physiotherapist in my home country - at Polish Public Rehabilitation Center for Children. My eagerness to work and travel led me to Sicily (Italy), where I became a Physiotherapist at the Institute of Psycho-Pedagogical Medicine at Lucia Mangano ETS in Catania, specializing in Autism Spectrum Disorder and mental health. Recently, I spent my time between Poland and Italy as a self-employed Physiotherapist. By volunteering and providing free-of-charge individual home visits to children - refugees from Ukraine in Poland, I was fulfilling my passion to serve others. 

Eventually, in 2020 I obtained a certificate in Sensory Integration by J. Ayres. Two years later I had reached my professional goal and I became the Certified NDT Bobath Therapist. Those courses have given me countless number of tools, as well as a whole new insight into the diagnosing, assessment, and treatment of the little ones.
