About me

I am Registered MBACP qualified counsellor with BACP Accredited Advanced Diploma in Person Centred Counselling. I am also qualified Cognitive Behaviour Psychotherapist, trained in 3rd Wave CBT including  Acceptance Commitment Therapy(ACT), Schema Therapy and Mindfulness.  I In my work with couples I also use Emotionally Focused Therapy(EFT). Currently I am studying for  Masters Degree in CBT. I am  a  member of BABCP and working towards BABCP Accreditation.   
In my therapeutic work I draw on different modalities depending on client`s needs but remembering that:

“To understand the person we have to look from their point of view” ( Rogers)

„Aby zrozumieć człowieka trzeba patrzeć zjego punktu widzenia" (Rogers)                                      

It`s usually other`s who tell Us, what we `should do` or `not to do`...  We have been conditioned by significant people in our lives since early childhood, to create our self picture, which very often is in conflict with our inner self. This usually impact on the way we think, feel and relate to each others and can be  reflected through our behaviour as well as  our health (emotional, mental and physical)

I have great interest in couple therapy-based on Emotionally Focused Therapy-This therapy stresses that adult`s needs are similar to those of children. They are just more reciprocal.  “We live in shelter of each other” We used to have all village for support,  nowadays we have to relay on each other for support. We need emotional connection to loved ones to feel secure, happier ,healthier, etc.  Negative relationships undermine our self value, our health and effect our independence. We all need to know that there is somebody, we can reach to and that he/she will respond to us when we need them
