About me

Feeling Like You're Drowning? Find Your Balance with Kasia Cole

The world can feel overwhelming sometimes. A relentless tide of stress, anxiety, and emotional baggage can leave you feeling like you're barely keeping your head above water. Perhaps you've experienced trauma, a difficult life transition, or simply the cumulative effect of daily pressures. These experiences can leave you feeling overstimulated, disconnected from yourself, and struggling to cope.

But there is hope. You don't have to navigate this alone. As a therapist and passionate advocate for emotional well-being, I'm here to help you find your balance. My name is Kasia Cole, and I've dedicated over a decade to helping people overcome challenges and rediscover inner peace.

The Balance You Crave

I believe the key to healing lies in addressing the root cause of your distress – your emotions. That's why I developed the Balance Psychotherapy app, a unique program designed to equip you with the tools you need to manage your emotions and achieve lasting change.

The app offers guided meditations, tapping exercises, and techniques derived from EMDR therapy, all aimed at helping you regulate your nervous system and release pent-up emotions. I'll also guide you through crucial psychotherapeutic concepts, empowering you to understand your own emotional landscape.

The app is a step in a right direction. If you're looking for deeper support though, I also offer in-person and online therapy sessions. I specialize in short-term therapy, helping you achieve your goals and heal from past experiences in a time-efficient way.

Finding the Right Fit for You

Whether you choose the app, therapy sessions, or a combination of both, you can expect a personalized and supportive approach. I create a safe and confidential space where you can explore your challenges without judgment.

My goal is to work collaboratively with you, helping you to:

Identify and understand your emotions
Develop healthy coping mechanisms
Break free from negative emotional patterns
Reclaim your sense of inner peace and joy
Don't Wait to Start Feeling Better

Maybe you've considered therapy before but hesitated. Perhaps you're worried about the cost, the time commitment, or simply taking the first step. But remember, investing in your emotional well-being is an investment in your life. You deserve to feel balanced, empowered, and in control.

Take the first step today. Download the Balance Psychotherapy app for free and explore the resources available. If you have further questions or are interested in scheduling a therapy session, don't hesitate to contact me. Together, we can create a personalized plan to help you find your balance and navigate life with greater clarity and purpose.

Remember, you are not alone. Let's start your journey towards healing and joy today.

‘I was originally wary of counselling, but I have to say, I had an overwhelmingly positive experience – I am now a firm advocate for it to all of my friends and family. I want to warmly say thank you for helping me. The impact your counselling sessions with me had has stayed with me and it looks like it will continue beyond. It has challenged me to grow out of my comfort zone and help me to make choices in life, both personal and career aspects.‘

Training, qualifications & experience

  • MSc in Psychodynamics of Human Development (Sept 2010-Jul 2012) taught jointly by Birkbeck, University of London and The British Psychotherapy Foundation (BPF). I was able to conduct my own research on how childhood disability impacts relationships and attachment. I was privileged to conduct infant observations under the guidance of BPF.
  • Introduction to Couple Counselling and Psychotherapy (Jan-Jul 2010), Tavistock Relationships.
  • Graduate Certificate in Couple and Individual Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy from The Tavistock Relationships (Sept 2012-Jul 2013) which is a world renowned London base course. I took this training further and connected it with research on how people form attachments.
  • MSc (Couns&PsychTh) in Individual Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP accredited and BPC registered training) with Birkbeck, University of London (Sept 2015-Jul 2017). Birkbeck has been training counsellors and psychotherapists for over 40 years. Their expertise on wider social systems we all function in and their impact on our mental health I particularly appreciate. This training connects my psychodynamic and academic approach.
  • Additional training in Schema CBT, Mindfulness, Compassion Focussed Therapy and EMDR.

I have been working in mental health sector since 2008 first as a special educational needs and disability teacher and then as a psychotherapist. I was active as a counsellor for Mind in Uxbridge, for Tavistock Relationships in Central London and for Marriage Care in Notting Hill and as a university student counsellor at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I am also a member of the BACP Division for Spirituality and the BACP Division for Universities & Colleges. I am a member of Birkbeck Counselling Association and an associate of the British Emotionally Focused Therapy Community.

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.

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.

Accredited register membership

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).

Further information

‘Back then, when I saw you for the first time, I was someone going through a depressive episode but also found it hard to deal with my social anxiety. I didn’t like the job I was doing and felt like I had no one to turn to.
Since then, however, I feel like I have really made progress. Thank you for all the help you have given. If it wasn’t for you, I would never have had the push to make choices in life and start to grow within myself.’

‘I was really pleased with the couple’s counselling services offered by Kasia. Her intelligent, analytical observations on my relationship with my partner opened up entirely new perspectives for us both to explore, and allowed us to discuss our problems openly in a calm, welcoming, mediated environment. Her input was invaluable and allowed us to understand each other better, adding much-needed stability and giving us renewed drive to make things work.
I would definitely recommend Kasia to intervene and assist when a relationship becomes difficult. She is extremely professional and an excellent psychotherapist, as well as being friendly, warm and approachable, creating a very comfortable atmosphere which is essential for sensitive therapies like this.’
