ABOUT VIKTORIA: I am a Therapist, Coach & Wisdom Seeker. Although I completed my training, Master's degree in Counselling Psychology, I continue to read vigorously and take workshops to find all the answers to life's mysteries. I now want to share with you and the world life and relationship wisdom that I accumulated. To make that a reality, I created my global, online practice – GLOBAL THERAPY with VIKTORIA.

CROSS-CULTURAL EXPERIENCE: I look to the root of what unites us all regardless of the background and culture we grew up in – our feelings and relationships transcend all boundaries as they are a part of everyone’s life. Having the experience to live in three different countries, I went through the highs and lows of life's inevitable changes and learned a great deal of wisdom from it.
