About me

Although life is such an amazing, fascinating and wonderful mystery, which can be discovered everyday, sometimes it provides us with difficulties we cannot cope with; surprises we did not expect or even did not want to, or put us into the situations we cannot deal with at all. Then we think, that there is no hope, there is no solution or there is "no way out". The good news is, that there is a hope- there is counselling.

So What is that Counselling then?

I understand counselling as a process of helping, based on the voluntary relationship (full of trust, understanding and acceptance) between two people- client and counsellor; it is focused on problem solving and helping client to find his own ways of dealing with problems and get his own solutions, which enables him to become fully functioning person.

Counselling is offered by a qualified and experienced professional, called counsellor. In that case it is me.

Hello there, nice to meet you, my name is Aleksandra Pieczarka and I am bilingual (Polish/English speaking) counsellor.

I have nearly three years experience of working for Bradford Counselling Services, where I worked with wide range of clients from all ages, genders, backgrounds, beliefs, races and cultures, Polish and English speaking.

I have also started my own counselling business in January, and I really enjoy to work for myself and see clients in that setting.

Just recently I have started cooperation with GamCare- one of the biggest organizations in the UK helping problem gamblers. I provide my counselling service for problem gamblers clients and their families and friends in Bradford http://www.krysallis.org.uk/gamcare-counsellors.html.


My way of working:

At my practice I use Person-Centred approach, which means for me, that every person is unique and have own potential to heal himself and find his own solutions. I accept client as a human being. I do not judge or criticise, I just listen to a client in a safe and confidential environment, full of trust, empathy and honesty.

By listening to the client, asking appropriate questions, reflecting back what I had heard, I can show my client completely different point of view, l can help my client to look at all the problems form different perspective, which will let client to find own answers and solutions.

In the counselling room, comfort, safety and wellbeing of my client is my priority.

This is, what I can offer to you as well. How do you feel about that? I can still imagine, that it is not easy decision to make- to go for counselling, to ask for help, and I understand that it may take a time and courage to do that. That is perfectly fine, take your time and do not rush. I can wait for you, and when you are ready, I will be here.

“Courage doesn’t happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you have been avoiding your whole life.” (Shannon L. Alder).
