I am a Zen,Integrative therapist based in North London,BACP registered with a degree in counselling.
I have an authorisation to teach zen in UK and abroad.It can be very beneficial to some clients however I don't teach zen during therapy session.
If you wonder what is zen or koans pls go to the web:www.londonzencentre.co.uk and you can see my profile too but you have heard probabaly on mindfulness, yoga etc so it's not the same but somehow connected.
If you want to see more about my counselling, way I work and perhaps my "personality"please visits: www.londoncounsellingcentre.org or https://www.linkedin.com/in/bogumila-malinowska and yes I am Polish as you can guess from seeing my name , so also talking in Polish is possible.
I can help with existential questions and during different life stages eg. crisis ,anxiety, depression,relationship,PTSD, psychosis, dissociations and night-mares related to different types of abuses.
I can help you to change your mind's patterns that are deeply set in the past habits and find a balance and fluffiness in your life.
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.
My clients have told me that they always feel much better and very uplifted, energised and confident after each session and they feel stronger and more grounded and equipped with hope, energy and some skills.
You can live life without drama and being under control old patterns issues.
I am a complementary, holistic zen, person centred, psychodynamic and integrative counsellor. I empower my clients from the very first meeting.
Where do I work from?
I work in N4 near Finsbury Park Station in London.
I believe that a person has the internal power to overcome, even most difficult problems, insecurities and situations, patterns, obsessions, compulsions, a violent physical and mental abuse and sexual abuse including rape as well as ritual abuse, addictions, the way of thinking and the negative talks, help you to live a drama free life .I help my clients to take back their power taken by traumas, history of abuse and severe depression and anhedonia etc
I see my client as a whole human being not only through the "issues"-problems. I don't diagnose my clients, I help my clients to feel good and powerful in daily life. I offer my clients different a very effective techniques to work through their individual needs and problems.
The power of self-healing:
I think everyone has the power of self-healing, to develop and to grow infinitively with the help of skilful counsellor/therapist and internal work. I think therapeutic relationship has tremendously healing power and as I see I can help with that process of "recovering internal power"
I believe there is more about a human then a medical diagnose, what other people think about you and even what you think about yourself. I see the person as a whole with powerful true self, not only via the perspective of their 'problems.'
I have worked with clients who were dealing with deep guilt, shame and frequently experiencing jealousy, self-doubt and regrets.
How will counselling help you?
Counselling will help you with feelings of insecurity in a relationship. It can assist with changing patterns, obsessions and help to overcome. I can support single parents in all stages, as well as children of single parents.
My service can also help you to go through empty nest syndrome as we know-symptoms of empty nest can include depression, a sense of loss of purpose, feelings of rejection, or worry, stress, and anxiety over the child's welfare.
Parents who experience empty nest syndrome often question whether or not they have prepared adequately for their child to live independently.
My service supports parents and leaving children as well as single parents and young and adult children of single parents. I work with groups of single parents .
I also help people with dementia in all stages and family members of the person with Alzheimer's, cancer and other devastating illnesses. I help families and individuals to communicate effectively with ill relatives as well as with overcoming stress related to different illness and suicidal experiences within the families and transgenerational pain.
*I speak additionally Polish language fluently and understand Slovak and Russian languages.
*Reduce fees are available for unemployed, clients with very low income and students.
