More about Mila
I have lived and worked abroad for over half my life, two of which have been in Switzerland for two decades. I gained my first intercultural experience immediately after the revolution in a German construction company in the HR department. During the next years spent in international trade and private business, I experienced the pressure of the competitive environment and the impact of stress on my health.
My interest in burnout prevention motivated me to study clinical psychology and coaching. I am currently studying body psychotherapy in Zurich. I completed my internship at a psychosomatic clinic and in outpatient psychiatry. Combining experience from healthcare and other sectors makes it easier for me to understand the causes and consequences of various mental health problems.
I have a deep respect for my clients, colleagues, friends and family and I appreciate their presence. I like traveling, I enjoy solving problems, I love culture and relaxation. I take care of my Czech roots regularly and with love. Czech humor is still an indispensable source of positive emotions for me in the south of Switzerland, where I live with my family.

More about Michala
I have always felt good in contact with foreigners. During my master’s degree in psychology at Charles University, I studied for a semester in Regensburg, Germany, and in Melbourne, Australia. As part of my doctorate, I spent several months in Hiroshima, my Ph.D. research compared the Czech and Japanese mentalities. I went through an adaptation process in a new country several times and each time I formed a new intercultural identity.
I taught Intercultural Psychology for Erasmus Psychology students at Charles University for more than 10 years and Intercultural Communication in Business at Metropolitan University for 6 years. As an Erasmus psychology teacher, I was a guest at Italian universities, mainly in Pisa and Bologna. I have many friends from other countries and I love spontaneous travel without long preparations. I live with a French-Polish partner and two little trilingual daughters in the French Alps.
