Ewa’s coaching program was of a great help for my thesis writing. I can’t thank her enough because it was a life-changing experience for me. She helped me to change my way of approaching any big project so that it’s not all pain and suffering, but rather a pleasant journey that permits enjoying the process. After each session with Ewa I felt relieved, inspired for further work and much more self-conscious. She was always well-prepared for our meetings, sharing generously her broad knowledge of the field. Thanks to her, I will remember my thesis writing as a demanding but enjoyable and inspiring experience. It’s definitely one of the great investments I could do to myself. Thank you once again, Ewa!

How does my service work?
As a practicing psychologist with a PhD, I fully understand the common difficulties of PhD candidates. I use my clinical training to understand patterns that may cause problems in your journey to becoming a PhD.
In my sessions, I will use various therapy techniques so that we can break the patterns that may be blocking you from achieving success. With my help, you will be able to understand yourself better so that you can be prepared for current and future challenges. So, let’s get started!
Step 1. Book a free Discovery Call
This call allows you to meet me in person and see how it feels. It is an occasion for you to tell me about your difficulties and learn how we could work together. It's also a chance for you ask all the questions you have.
Step 2. Set goals and proceed with the payment
Based on our first meeting, we will set concrete goals for our work together and establish action plan. Only then you will be asked to make a payment.
Step 3. Let's get to work!
We will schedule regular online meetings so that we can work on your issues together from the comfort of your home. Sessions are typically 60 minutes.
What will the consultation look like?
We will schedule regular online ZOOM meetings so that we can work on your issues together from the comfort of your home. Sessions are typically 60 minutes.
In the consultations, I will use my experience and knowledge in the psychology field to understand and propose a plan of action to help you achieve your academic goals. My sessions are completely focused on you and with each session, you should gain more clarity on how to deal with your situation. My PhD tips for success have been known to be life changing for clients.
"Even after fixing a specific goal for our consultations, the sessions with Dr Pluciennicka addressed much more than that. Her observations, questions and activities offered plenty of material to think about, and practical advice as well. In my case, her explanations of psychological concepts made the sessions even more effective, and her support during the 2020 confinement was extremely valuable."

To be fortunate enough, I got a chance for a one on one coaching through Zoom with Dr Ewa.During the coaching, I have had a strong feeling that Ewa is very much concerned and is deeply thinking about my research which was evident from her informed and analytical questions about the different aspects of my Ph.D. dissertation. Her questions about the topic, data collection, validity, patterning, motivation, and my prompt answers have made me realize that I am not that lost as I am assuming myself to be. The overall work together was an extremely boosting up which has made me confident and enthusiast about my PhD project again!

Academics: I earned my PhD in cognitive psychology in 2015 followed by two postdoctoral fellowships. So I completely understand your academic challenges.
Psychologist: I am a licensed psychologist (French license number/ADELI 679307249), with several years of professional experience in neurology and rehabilitation services. In addition to my research, I have mentored academics and high achievers since 2017.

One Final Thing…
The mental academic problems you face when obtaining your PhD do not disappear once you receive your PhD. On the contrary, mental challenges tend to amplify over time. According to a Berkley Survey, PhD students are six times more likely to develop mental health illnesses compared to other highly educated individuals following the suffering they experience during their PhD.
So if you are suffering or in need of improving your PhD journey, don’t wait! Let me help you.

When I first heard about Ewa focusing mainly on PhD students in her work I was intrigued by the idea that someone would focus on assisting people reach what is considered the highest qualification level in academia that is at times lonely, full of self-doubt, bumpy and intimidating at times. I had previously consulted with different psychologists previously but although the 'positive talks' that I practiced were helping, there seemed to be something missing deep down that I could not put my finger to it. Ewa's approach being very practically oriented helped fill the gap. I always left her session with a good sense of what to do and how to do it and a clear direction of where I was headed to instead of a tangled route I was on before I met her.
From Ewa's productivity booster workshops to the one-on-one counselling session with her, I had learnt how to take better care of myself mentally, emotionally and physically and rest better without any sense of guilt while still meeting my academic goals. The cherry on top is that this has had a rippling effect in other areas of my life as well..... I believe in myself more, I have started taking up challenges which I could never have agreed to before, more doors are opening and I attribute this to the new state of mind that I exist in now. I now describe myself as free, grounded, empowered and as I said to her out of the shadows and dancing in the sunshine.
