Bogumila Malinowska (MBACP)
My therapeutic work is based on mindfulness/zen and Western methods.
I think mind can greatly affect our decisions, relationships and chances in our day to day life.Apart of being therapist I am a zen-mindfulness qualified w many years of experiences working all around World including Far East.
My therapeutic work with individuals and people in relationships aims to help you resolve difficulties and work towards your hopes and aspirations.
I have worked with a range of one-to-one clients for some years, on a wide variety of issues.
These include:Anxiety: Relationships;Depression; Identity;Career;Work related problems;Obsessions; Body dysmorphia;Self esteem; Sex ; Panic attacks;Bereavement;Grief; Domestic violence in childhood including sexual abuse;Loneliness; Race and Racism; Disability ; self image;Family issues ;Abuse;Anger,Existential struggles,Post Troumatic Stress disorder;Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD);among others.
I have worked with difference and diversity in different ways. I recognise the impact of different forms of oppression on personal development, and on the chances that are available to people.
I am committed to working in anti-oppressive and inclusive ways.
I am happy to work both short or longer term with people. Short-term work often involves specific issues and goals.
This is also true of longer-term work, but can give way to a more free-flow exploration of issues as they arise.
I have worked in a number of settings, as a therapist including child protection, drugs, alcohol & drug addiction, sexuality & mental health settings. I regular work with individual clients in North London , near Finsbury Park and Crouch Hill (N4)
Different areas I deal with:
- work issues
- panics attacks
- eating disorders
- low self-esteem
- mental and physical abuse
- fear of change
- addictions - substances, emotional, behavioural, workaholism, sex, gambling, shopping, internet addictions
- feelings of emptiness and unclear life directions
- parental issues
During therapy session we focus on the moment and see the roots of patterns and problems.
I am a complementary, holistic mindfulness and zen, person centred-integrative counsellor.
Where do I work from?
I work in N4 near Finsbury Park Station and Crouch Hill station in London.
