My full name is Jadwiga, Jaga for short. I am of Polish origin, born and bred in Britain, so speak both English and Polish. I am a wife, mother and grandmother.
As many people, I have suffered from mental dis-ease. I chose to help myself through counselling which I found helpful and healing. Having experienced counselling as a client, I feel that I can empathise all the more easily with my own clients, e.g. how nervous they may feel at their first session.
Counselling can be of help in resolving feelings, thoughts and/or behaviours which you can see are negatively affecting you, your life and/or relationships. It can also help in supporting you in impactful life events such as bereavement or making a difficult decision.
My aim is to work with you by providing a stress-free, relaxed environment where my clients are free to say and explore what they want, without fear of being judged.
I offer face to face sessions and sessions via Zoom, Skype and WhatsApp.

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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Additionally, I work with people who ALWAYS end up in relationships where they do most of the work to keep the relationship going, often at great cost to themselves. My aim is to help you understand why this happens in order to break the cycle and allow you to form a healthy, loving and mutually supportive relationship.
And also general dis-ease and anything that talking to an empathic, non-judgmental listener would help. As one client said to me, "it was a surprise to me that just talking could help" and another said, "I felt heard and understood".
It is my role to help you understand the root/s of your dis-ease and then help you find the answers and solutions which will work for you, because we are all unique.
