About me

I'm offering professional Counselling, Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy for Individuals and Couples The therapy can be either in English or Polish.

I do understand that admitting we have a problem and don't cope very well can be very difficult. I can assure you that there is nothing wrong with that, we all have better and worse days in our live's. I have been on the receiving end and the idea of having completely "me time" and talking to somebody who can listen and won't judge, can be very powerful and very comforting. I understand that coming for therapy can be very overwhelming and my aim is to make that as comfortable as possible.

I like to work in an integrative style, I like to use different therapeutic models in order to understand and address your needs. I'm adapting the way I work using my personal insight and simply listening to you. After all it’s all about your needs, my role is only to assist you in the process of self-healing

I believe that the quality of a relationship between therapist and client is the most important factor. I like to create a safe and warm environment for my clients where they can relax, feel comfortable and then explore their difficulties. Ethics and professionalism is paramount, therefore I like to start with clear and precise boundaries. Being Polish allows me to provide therapy in dual languages.
