I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, and I offer open-ended psychotherapy and short term counselling to individual adults and couples/other relationships in either English or Polish.
My interest in psychotherapy started many years ago when I commenced my work with vulnerable people affected by crime, particularly survivors of domestic abuse. I appreciated the healing power of talking therapy and the benefits of making room to process difficult feelings and emotions whilst being true to ones’ values. In the past several years, I have engaged in extensive therapeutic training, clinical work on my journey of introspection and self-acceptance through my personal therapy.
As an integrative therapist, I tailor my work to best suit my clients’ unique, individual needs, drawing from various theoretical orientations. A trusting therapist-client relationship is a crucial part of therapeutic change. I offer a non-judgemental, safe and empathetic space where clients can freely explore their emotional struggles and problems in life. I strongly believe in diversity and offer multiculturally sensitive support advocating dignity and value for all individuals. As such, I respect and adhere to all aspects of the Equality Act 2010. I welcome individuals from all protected characteristics and ensure that that their individual needs are adequately appreciated whilst providing my service. This includes any members of the community represented by age, disability, gender reassignment, religion, race, sex and sexual orientation.
I work with couples and other forms of relationships (open, polyamorous, friendships, adult family relationships)

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
