Marzena Barszcz, MA
MARZENA BARSZCZ, MA is director of the Poland FSBA School for Bioenergetic Analysis. Having a successful career as a chiropractor in Poland, she was drawn to more deeply exploring the mind/body connection and psychoanlaysis. Her interests took her on extensive travels to the United States to train. She summarizes her focus as follows:
“Psychoterapia is for me the most important way, which I follow, the way to himself. Possibility of accompaniment in the way other people is a gift for which I am grateful to life. For me, psychotherapy is a space in which it is possible to develop relationships and it is in this relationship is in the process of treatment and recovery.
My roots about people come from a medical approach. Luckily, I had teachers who saw an individual as a unity, taking into account the impact psychogenności on a par with other factors. Sowed in me the seed that eventually germinate made it possible to reach further, the first book of Alexander Lowen, later the own experience in bioenergetics. It allowed me to touch each other as never before found such a connection, for which I missed and developing the relationship in itself, which gives support.
My heart spoke two currents, both analytical analysis Bioenergetic and group analysis. First referring to the body, the second relating to a group. And for such work I invite others.”
