May your choices reflect your hopes and not your fears.
Originally born in Poland I moved to the UK with my family when I was 14 years, unable to speak the language and anxious about going to a new country and school where I had no friends.
Throughout my teenage years I battled with anxiety, OCD, insomnia, body dysmorphia, food and shopping addiction, overthinking and negative self-talk, all amidst a turbulent yet dedicated recovery from childhood narcissistic parental abuse.
I eventually graduated from Cardiff University with a degree in Law & German, before starting my career as a legal assistant in a pharmaceutical company. From there I took a different direction and worked with people with disabilities and then onto working with children with special needs in both mainstream and SEND schools, I found this work particularly rewarding, and built meaningful connections with people.
Currently I work as a Paralegal in Civil Liberties for a large Law firm, I love my work, but also enjoy tapping into my creative essence and love to write. I also love photography and would like to have my own photography business someday.
I am passionate about reducing the stigma around mental health and wish to use my experiences in order to help others and give hope to young women who may be struggling with their identity. To help women who have experienced narcissistic abuse and who suffer with codependent behaviours.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, baking, drinking tea, eating sushi, gardening, poetry, photography, meditation, camping and chilling with my cat Iwanek.
I also work as a Life Coach with young women aged 18-25...TBC
