Iwona Drozdz (BACP Individual Member, Dip.Couns)
It can be hard to reach out and take the first step when you think you need help, I can make the process a little easier for you. I am friendly and have an approachable, conversational style that provides both understanding and the opportunity for introspection.
My therapeutic work is grounded in Contemporary Psychotherapy and online therapy is a specific feature of my practice. I offer my clients help with a broad range of issues from anxiety, depression, panic attack, relationship and family issues, loss, trauma to bereavement.
I work relationally, which means that I bring myself into a therapeutic relationship and place my clients at the centre of our work, proceeding at the pace and with the type of therapy suited.
Our sessions will be a dialogue where we can work together to create new possibilities in a way that feels right for you. I can offer a calm and understanding place where clients can explore their own experiences and provide the tools to support my clients in their journey to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and live a more fulfilling life.
Training, qualifications & experience
Working as an Integrative Therapist I draw upon a combination of ideas and techniques. I can work with you for a brief period or longer if needed.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in custodial education and completed my studies with a Master’s degree in social rehabilitation. My post-graduate studies concentrated on counselling and psychotherapy where I trained in a pluralistic approach specifically concentrating on an outcome-oriented approach to psychotherapy. I have a substantial medical background working for many years supporting vulnerable adults as part of a healthcare team.
I am currently counselling NHS clients and have a particular interest in Grief and Bereavement Counselling.
I graduated with my Diploma from BeeLeaf Institute in Contemporary Psychotherapy, I am registered as an Individual Member of BACP and a full member of Community for Contemporary Psychotherapy and abide by their code of ethics.
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.
