About me

I’m a fully qualified counsellor with over 8 years of experience working in various mental health settings. I offer private counselling for adults in York.

I work with adults who seek to develop healthier coping strategies, improve their self-esteem and learn how to manage their feelings. By creating a safe and supportive space, I aim to support you in your healing process and help you create the resources you need to deal with challenges.

How I work

My core counselling training stems from solution-focused and relational therapy.  I have experience working both short and long term with adults, covering a range of issues including general anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, past trauma and bereavement.

In our initial session, we will discuss the things you would like to work on as well as my approach to ascertain if what I offer is what you are looking for.  We can arrange a phone call to talk about the sessions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I hold a degree in Psychology from a university in Poland where I worked as a psychologist and psychotherapist for about 4 years. I completed over 250 h of training in psychotherapy with the Polish Milton Erickson Institute accredited by The Milton H. Erickson Foundation. I moved to York in 2013 and continued my counselling training by completing a PG Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Leeds Beckett University.

I have worked in various settings, including community-based counselling service in Harrogate and trauma specialised service in York.

As a member of the National Counselling Society MNCS (Accred), I work within their Ethical Framework and I am professionally supervised.
