Monika Paula Górowska, psychologist

About me

My name is Monika Paula Gorowska, I am a psychologist. In my clinical practice, I use elements of analytical psychology to help discover the unconscious mechanisms governing the psyche, in accordance with the Jungian principle that "what we do not introduce into our consciousness will appear in our lives as fate”.

I have a great interest in people and their culture. By the age of 24, I moved to China and started my individual journey toward adulthood and maturity. Living for many years in Asia opened up my Western mind to different ways of thinking and experiencing the world. At some point in my journey, I fell into crisis, and the psychology of C.G. Jung allowed me to make a synthesis of my diverse experiences and move towards wholeness.

Since then, I have been inspired by the work of C.G. Jung and post-Jungians, using their ideas in my clinical practice. I have been consulting adults seeking psychological support from China, Great Britain, the USA, and South Africa. In my work with clients, we set on a heroic path through which we discover and recreate personal and collective archetypal narratives, facilitating the shift towards taking the gentle leadership of one’s psyche.


I obtained a Ph.D. degree in psychology from the Institute of Psychology, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing. My scientific work focuses on the study of the psychological mechanisms of addiction and the development of novel therapeutic tools assisting in maintaining abstinence and preventing relapse. In Poland, I collaborated with the Polish Academy of Sciences and conducted research in Monar, the largest addiction facility in the country. I am the author of many scientific publications that have appeared in prestigious scientific journals, such as Frontiers in Psychiatry, Frontiers in Psychology, Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, and Comprehensive Psychiatry.

Clinical Education

I earned a diploma in Advanced Jungian Studies from the C.G. Jung Center, Ireland. I have worked diligently to develop my clinical skills and knowledge in the field of psychology, and have obtained certifications as a facilitator of Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP), from the University of California, San Diego, and "Prolonged Exposure Therapy for PTSD", as well as "Chairwork" from the CBT Academy, Warsaw. To further my expertise in psychology, I engage in regular study and attend numerous workshops, seminars, and training, such as Active Imagination, Trauma Workshop, The Shadow, and Boundary & Space.




I provide psychological consultations for adults facing various psychological challenges. The ultimate goal of my work is to help clients know their psyches better and bring back the gentle authorship of their lives. I create a safe, non-judgmental space where clients can explore and express their thoughts, emotions, and experiences.

Online MBRP

Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention is an eight-week evidence-based program designed to help individuals struggling with addictions. The objective of the MBRP program is to foster increased awareness of triggers, destructive habitual patterns, and “automatic” reactions in order to better cope with addictive behaviours and prevent relapse.

Individual Sessions

The primary goal of individual sessions is to help clients gain a better understanding of the mechanisms that govern their psyche and to bring awareness to those parts that reside in the shadow and are not well-integrated. This process ultimately facilitates the restoration of a sense of authorship of one's story through the gradual development of gentle leadership of one's psyche.
