About Poradnia

Poradnia is a psychological practice of Dr Jack Cieplinski, an experienced psychologist specialised in working with international community in the Netherlands. For many years, Jack had worked for the National Health Service in UK, providing treatment for people affected by anxiety, depression, trauma and stress.

At the heart of Poradnia’s philosophy lie three fundamental principles informing its approach to therapeutic work: 

  • Empowerment – building strong sense of ownership through concrete, tangible actions
  • Responsibility – shifting attention from (self)blame, and promoting the importance of own deeds
  • Participation – actively engaging in the process of change with the support of  client’s family, friends and extended social network. 

From the beginning of 2017, all independent psychological practices in the Netherlands are legally obliged to comply with so-called quality statute (Kwaliteitstatuut) – a number of requirements that ensure appropriate quality of psychological care. Poradnia Psychological Practice complies with these requirements and published its own quality status – you can find it under the following link.

Poradnia NL Psychological Practice attaches great importance to careful and lawful handling of your data.
For this reason, we laid out  the following policy:
