During her education, she focused on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, which have achieved successful and rapid results in the treatment of depression and anxiety disorder, stress reduction, emotion management and increasing well-being.
In addition, she observed and experienced that Mindfulness “is extremely effective in the individual’s getting off the autopilot, being aware of what you are doing, being able to make your choices freely, and not being overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
