About me

I am BACP Accredited Integrative Counsellor and BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I am also EMDR practitioner and UK Accredited Mediator. I have been working for over 10 years with clients in the NHS and in private setting. My training in different therapeutic approaches combined with my clinical experience allow me to offer in-depth assessment of your issues and provide treatment which is most suitable for your particular needs.

I see my role as helping you to understand yourself and your interactions with others clearer. This will help you to make better-informed and more beneficial choices in your life. I believe that therapeutic relationship plays a key role in positive therapy outcomes.

I have worked effectively with people who present with a range of issues including depression, social anxiety, low self-esteem, general anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, PTSD and childhood trauma. I provide support for those who have experienced loss or bereavement in their lives. If you have any family problems that impact on your life you might want to address this in therapy. I also offer help with anger management.

I offer short or long-term therapy for adults. 

I offer sessions in English and in Polish.

I have a clinic for face-to-face therapy on the High Street in Tunbridge Wells and I also offer therapy remotely via Zoom.  An email address is required for Zoom, as well as access to a webcam on your device. Payment can be made via bank transfer.

E-mail me or call to make your appointment.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BABCP
British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP)

The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists. BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
