Gosia Zak MBACP
Do you sometimes worry, feel low, or think that things are out of your control? Perhaps something has happened in your life that doesn’t make sense, or it feels like it’s too late or too frightening to make a change?
With over 10 years’ experience working in NHS and various charities, I offer a warm and calm approach to help you identify your own strengths, and to empower you to make the right choice in the here and now. It is important for me to help you better understated who you really are, and give you an opportunity to make your own choices, because when “our beliefs change, our behaviour follows”.
I believe that therapy is more effective when the client and therapist set goals together. I will try to help you recognise that we all have the potential to live the life we want, rather than the life we have been taught to live.
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy depending on the client's needs and this can be discussed at the initial session.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am Humanistic Integrative Counsellor and my approach is integrative, combining various theoretical models such as person centred approach, psychodynamic, or CBT suited to a person's individual needs. I select therapeutic approaches to fit a client’s preference and the issues encountered, to help the client develop self-understanding. It is a collaborative approach in which we work together to make sense of what is happening in the client’s life and help him or her to gain a deeper understanding of the reasons that have brought them to counselling. There might be many reasons why people consider psychological therapy. Often these include negative ways of thinking or unhelpful patterns or behaviours that have their origins in childhood and leave the client feeling stuck and unable to move on in their life.
