Katarina Gaborova was born and raised in Eastern Europe. The fall of the communist regime during her childhood brought with it her first experiences of profound social change, which helped shape her future. At the age of 19, she moved away from her family and home country. She has since travelled through Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa, with a yearning to experience different cultures, learn new languages and explore life. Katarina trained as a psycho-physiologist and psychologist in Australia, and became a life coach and neuro-linguistic programming practitioner in the Netherlands. She is particularly interested in how change and unexpected life circumstances can influence people’s mental and emotional state. She works extensively with the international community – both adults and children – in her private psychology practice in The Hague. Applying knowledge gleaned from various schools of psychology, combined with life-coaching, she assists people in achieving their goals.
