My name is Agnes Zalewska and I am a qualified and experienced psychotherapist. I work with adults, couples and older teenagers. Psychotherapy is my passion and philosophy of life. I strongly believe talking, thinking and discovering meaning gives us a better understanding of ourselves and outer world. I believe having experience of psychotherapy really changes our life and improves our well-being.
I am a Member of the British Psychoanalytic Council and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I am based in central Exeter.
I'm also a specialist psychotherapist within the NHS and a Member of British Association of Gender Specialists. I work with people who consider gender reassignment surgery and with those who want to talk about their identity.
I am doing clinical research exploring Non Binary identification.
