Olga Kasianenko
I was born in 1971 in Kyiv, into a family of engineers. I am the only child in my family.

In 1989, I graduated from high school and entered Kyiv Taras Shevchenko University, the Department of Psychology. Then I completed another 4 years of post-graduate studies. My thesis and research was already back then focused on Jungian archetypes and free associations. I did not know then that was the beginning of my long journey.

In 1994, I got married and gave birth to my son. In 2010 my daughter was born.

I was looking for myself in the profession. In 2000, my journey in psychoanalysis began. Until 2008, I was trained in classical Freudian analysis.

I got my training in group psychoanalysis at the International Union of Group Psychoanalysis (Austria, Germany).

In 2008, my Soul brought me to Jungian analysis. I joined the first group of routers who started their Journey. Since that time, my challenging path of discovering my identity began, and it has been going on to this day.

In 2015 I passed my intermediary exam, and in 2019 I became an IAAP Individual Member. And at the beginning of 2021 I joined the Ukrainian Jungian Association.

Parallel to my Jungian training, I have also been interested and pursuing training in child psychoanalysis and sandplay therapy.
