She mainly focused on fields dealing with trauma, psychosomatics and developmental psychology, which she included in her dissertation and successfully completed her studies in psychotherapeutic science in 2014. At the same time, Martina studied gestalt psychotherapy at the IG Wien Institute in Vienna and successfully completed her four-year training in 2017. As she started her practice, she worked under supervision with groups and individuals. Between January 2014 and June 2017, she led workshops and group and individual therapies at the Center for Personal Growth and Psychotherapy (CORP) in Ljubljana and later continued with therapy in her private practice in Ljubljana and Radlje ob Dravi. After graduating, Martina embarked on her postgraduate education at the SFU Ljubljana. Her work was focused on working with clients. While investigating psychosomatics, she began to explore alexithymia, which was the subject of her master thesis. She completed her Master’s Degree in 2019.
