Bio Piotr Suchanek




Act Odwagi promotes mindful living grounded in personal values.

Act Odwagi is all about acceptance, kindness, authenticity and compassion.

Psychology of the human mind is my passion since I can remember, and my interest in zen and meditation practices continues for over 10 years already.

The integration of knowledge and personal experience is of utmost importance to me.

I graduated from the Institute of Applied Psychology at the Jagiellonian University. I specialized in Sports Psychology at the Academy of Physical Education in Cracow. I participated in international exchange programs, studying at the Dutch Radboud University, as well as doing an academic internship at the German German Sport University Cologne.

I acquired coaching competences during the post-graduate studies at the Tischner European University, obtaining the ACSTH certificate issued by the International Coach Federation.

I gained mindfulness teaching skills in the UK by participating in a two-stage certified Breathworks teacher training programme.

I see the teacher course as a symbol of the many years of personal mindfulness practice and many meditation retreats I have participated in.

I regularly participate in specialized psychological training, and my special area of interest is new forms of psychotherapy called third wave of behavioural therapy. I have expanded my knowledge and competences in such approaches as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Rational Behavior Therapy (RBT), Schema Therapy (ST), among others.

I am a co-founder of Smart Sport Foundation promoting psychology, mental health, and well-being. Actively engaged in the design and delivery of psychoeducational workshops.

I am a member of Association for Contextual Behavior Science (ACBS) being an international forum for ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) community.
