Iwona Peterson - BA (Hons) MBACP
Life can be overwhelming and you might feel alone and confused. It can lead to unwanted feelings and thoughts. Anxiety and depression can be challenging to cope with especially when you have no support.
Most of emotional struggles come from relating, whether it is a relationship with yourself, your partner, friends, family, children or colleagues.
Working together, our relationship can become a pathway to a better understanding of yourself and those around you.
I am a fully trained and qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor (BA Hons in Integrative-Relational Counselling) and a register member of British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) working in private practice and community services.
I am bilingual and offer counselling in English and Polish.
Training, qualifications & experience
My way of working is ‘ Integrative-relational’ which means that I draw on different approaches to support my work that is tailored to individual needs.
My aim is to create a safe space where you can feel comfortable talking about what might be troubling you. Together we can explore and find ways to improve your emotional well-being.
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.
