ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
My name is Agnieszka Kirchner but everyone here calls me Aga, feel free to pick which one you prefer. I'm a wife and a mom. I have two daughters, an 8-year-old and a 2-year-old who you can see in the photos on this website. I'm also currently pregnant. I was born and raised in Warsaw, Poland.
I remember that my first encounter with a small child was when I was 7 years old. My neighbor had a brother who then was 1 year old. Once, he fell and his parents, who were cooking dinner at that time, asked me to help him. I picked him up, he held on to me tightly and started getting calmer and calmer, until he stopped crying all together. Since then, even though I was a young child, I knew I wanted to work with children and that I really wanted to become a mother one day.
Back in Poland I was a nanny and I came to the States as an au pair so I watched a lot of children and was in contact with their parents. At some point I started connecting a lot of things I noticed in their behaviors to their mental health and that led me to connect it all to their home situation as well. My interest in psychology started growing and I really wanted to know more about us, humans. I met a lot of children coming from different families, different environments and with various life experiences. I realized how important it is to listen and be listened to with understanding, acceptance and love and I now really want to share this knowledge with you.
I always knew that parenting isn't easy but it definitely can get much easier if you have good recourses and you're confident. My life truly changed after my husband introduced me to P.E.T. After reading this book and then reading "P.E.T. In Action" I could finally connect all the dots. Not only about other children's lives but, most importantly, about my own. I now have additional skills which help me support not only my kids but also other people who I care about and myself as well. This has, like I said, changed my life and now I want to help you change yours.
I'm a certified P.E.T. instructor and the only one in Georgia and surrounding areas. I'm very happy to bring the course to this area and I hope you'll join me!
