I graduated as a psychologist in 2022 from the Eötvös Loránd University, Faculty of Psychology and Pedagogy, with a Clinical and Health Specialisation. However, my university path started at the University of Pécs Medical School. I studied to become a medical doctor, and after three years, I decided to change my vocation. My experience working in healthcare made me realize I wanted to help and treat people through other aspects of care. I turned to psychology, where the focus became on therapeutic relationships and psychological support.
I carrie out the health psychology consultation at Panoráma Polyclinic:
- stress management related to the illness (with special attention to oncological diseases),
- psychological/health psychological support for physical (somatic) diseases, problems and conditions,
- help in coping with physical illness,

Through my experience working in healthcare, I saw the importance of treating patients holistically, looking at the person as a whole and addressing psychological, emotional, and social well-being alongside health conditions. I have cared for people of different ages, situations and needs as a nurse’s aide at the Department of Neurology at the University of Pécs. Furthermore, during my psychology studies, I spent summers in Norway as a healthcare worker in somatic and dementia wards for several years. I gained most of my experience caring for patients with ALS, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and various organic and mental disorders. My work experience shaped my thinking and taught me the importance of multidisciplinary care in the treatment and care of different acute and chronic illnesses.
During my university practice in health psychology, I learned about the work of the Panoráma Polyclinic, where the psychologist plays an essential role in the team of professionals and the treatment of patients. At the Panoráma Polyclinic, I take part in psychological care as a health psychologist, delivering health psychology consultations in Hungarian, English and Swedish. By treating psychological difficulties related to somatic problems, I support individuals to recognize their resources and strengths and help them cope with acute and chronic conditions and individual self-management. In addition to Hungarian, I also provide psychological counselling and consultation in English and Swedish on health-related quality of life and health behavioural aspects through an integrative approach, tailoring the process to the individual’s physical, mental, social and emotional needs.
