I am a certified member of the Latvian Association of Psychotherapists, the Latvian Association of Hypno-Psychotherapists, the European Association of Hypno-Psychotherapists, and the Russian Institute for Family and Organisation (Business) Systemic Solutions. I am also a member of the Latvian Association of Psychologists and the Latvian Association of Transpersonal Psychology.
I am a private practitioner in the field of psychology and psychotherapy, working with individual clients, couples and groups. When I work with groups, I establish system-phenomenological positions according to the Hellinger method. In practice, I use an integral approach (hypno-psychotherapy, system phenomenology, body-oriented psychotherapy, NLP, transpersonal psychology and psychotherapy), because each client is an individual, and so I try to find the most appropriate work technique for each of them. I make use of “pure” methods, as well as various combinations of methods.
I have delivered lectures and conducted seminars at Latvian universities, as well as for other target audiences – pedagogues, doctors, economists, etc. I cover quite a broad range of topics at the lectures and seminars, but basically I deal with various aspects of psychology and psychotherapy, because even as broad a topic as stress can be viewed from a very large number of perspectives.
I have authored many scholarly articles for peer-reviewed journals and presented my research at international conferences of psychologists in Latvia, Turkey, Greece, Spain and elsewhere. I have also authored and co-authored books, written prefaces for many books, and conducted psychological analysis of book content as a psychologist. I have also authored many popular articles for magazines. I have hosted the television show “Here and Now” and served as an expert in psychology and psychotherapy on many broadcasts on all of Latvia’s television channels. I was the first to conduct research in Latvia about the link between feminist identity, families and identity crises, as well as the first to study feminist identity in psychology for Latvia’s women.
