Ewelina Biesiada BSc (Hons) Psych, Dip In Couns. MBACP
Welcome to my profile! If you are reading this there is a possibility you have made a decision you have had enough of dealing with life and its struggles on your own. This is a first step to embark on a journey of self-exploration and finding what and why is bothering you and more importantly, what can be done about it. Its daunting and hard. But struggling in isolation, as you might know, is also hard and exhausting. The experience of recent months, for which there is no manual or template, has tested your psychological resilience on many levels and you found yourself struggling more and more with every day existence and its challenges. That can manifests itself in various ways: lack of sense of wellbeing, anxiety, depressive episodes, emotional flashbacks, compulsive behaviours around eating, alcohol consumption or mind altering substances and many others. Old ways of coping are no longer serving you in ways you want them to or are simply not available.
You may also feel a sense of being stuck, lack of hope, unable to cope in the context of relationships and feeling deprived of connection with friends. My integrative training, professional philosophy and personal experience have made me into a great believer that people are emotionally creative, resourceful problem solvers and those qualities can be tapped into in a non-judgmental safe space , which I strive to provide for you. But please, be assured, it’s your space, your pace, your needs. I am not saying therapy is always the answer to all the questions but there is a good chance that together we can explore your unique questions, your specific answers and your personalised path to connect with your emotional intelligence. This in turn has a potential to translate itself into a better quality of your life, regardless of your personal definition of it.

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.
Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
