Kateryna Katerynchuk: Psychologist, Psychotherapist specializing in treating depression, anxiety disorders and trauma

Social Media:

Kateryna used to work as a therapist in a psychological center based in Kyiv. After the full-scale war began, she had to relocate and now works with clients in private practice. She works with individuals and as a couples’ therapist. The methods she uses are CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), Schema-therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and RTM (Reconsolidation of Traumatic Memories Protocol). She specializes in treating depression, anxiety disorders, and trauma. In these hard times Ukrainians need psychological help and support, and as a psychologist she does her best to be helpful. Recently she has also joined a project providing psychological support for journalists. She believes in Ukraine’s victory and wants to contribute to it as much as she can.

What a unique and interesting story! Often when I meet people, we discuss topics that we are interested in, and the list can be long sometimes. Kateryna has a great deal of experience and knowledge in PTSD and dealing with trauma. While listening to her talk about her experience and how well she could express it, I had an idea. It was talking with her that sparked my interest in discussing personal experiences of the psychologist in Ukraine. I cannot think of anyone who could articulate and identify their shifts in mental state during an acute stressful situation than a psychologist who has lived through one. Not only did Kateryna live through an invasion and relocation, but she taught her children resilience through her example. She shares what she learned that helped her and what she saw that helped others that were struggling, and I hope you find it as interesting as I did.

We would really appreciate a share and like on IG, FB, YouTube, and Twitter. I am always looking for veterans or first responders who have battled PTSD to share how you have raised the quality of your life to shorten that journey for others. Additionally, if you support, provide services for these groups, or have extensive knowledge of benefits available for these groups please reach out. I would love to have a chat and share that knowledge with the community.
