Rūta Sketerskytė

I am a clinical psychologist. My work is based on the idea that each human being's experience, feelings, thoughts and worldview are unique, authentic and worthy of respect. In my work, I aim to help people to better understand themselves, and to discover the resources and pathways that are right for them, to help them cope with their difficulties, and perhaps to help them to live more authentically and more fully. I believe that a conversation with a psychologist creates a very unique space in which it is safe and enjoyable to explore both the difficulties that arise and the questions that arise about ourselves and the world around us. Becoming more aware of our thoughts, behaviours, feelings, and ideas about how we view the world and ourselves, how we build our relationships with others, opens up a special space for change in life.

Before becoming a psychologist, I spent 7 years working in other industries - digital products and restaurant businesses. I also spent 4 years travelling and working in different countries. Most of the time I lived in Canada and New Zealand, but I also spent a lot of time travelling in Asia, India and America. I have also completed a certified yoga teacher training (RYT 200h, Yoga Alliance) in Koh Phangan, Thailand. I believe that my diverse experience in life helps me to better understand and respond to the human challenges, needs and peculiarities of life that modern people face.

I have gained experience as a psychologist at the Vilnius City Mental Health Centre (Vasaros Hospital) during my professional practice, working both individually and in groups in the Inpatient Day Unit and Suicide Prevention Unit. For more than a year I have been running psychoeducational groups in the Psychosocial Rehabilitation Unit.
