About Lada

„I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.“
Carl G. Jung

It all started with my passion for reading books. Since my young age I have been fascinated by the many psychological phenomena and always wanted to learn more about what is behind them. I lived in many foreign countries, learned several foreign languages and got to know many different cultures. All my foreign experiences opened a new way to explore various facets of my personality, my Self. I have always felt great desire to understand and learn more about the world, people, psyche, life and death and have continuously searched for different sources of knowledge to expand my expertise.

I have a master’s degree in psychology and also completed an accredited postgraduate five-year training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.

I am a huge promoter of education and in the past twenty years it would be very difficult to find even one period, in which I had not been participating in a university study program, professional training or a certified course. Regularly I also participate in professional conferences, where I can learn about the latest trends in the field and   then bring them to my own practice so my clients can benefit from them too.

Besides activities related to my psychology practice we have established an active and long term cooperation with Práh Jižní Morava, an organization that provides help and support to people with serious mental illnesses and their community integration.
