About me

Hi,

I’m Kasia Cole. I specialise in an application of short term psychotherapies. My intention is to guide you to improve in the shortest possible time. The usual way of practice is scheduling your treatment in 8 – 16 session time frame. If you wish, we can also work long term. I work with UK-based and international clients and most of my appointments are online. When you meet me for the first time it will be for a non-binding consultation.

Individual Psychotherapy and Counselling

My main focus is to help you discover or reconnect with your inner safety, meaning and resilience, whether you experienced trauma, abuse, grooming, severe physical or emotional pain, relationship or work troubles or sexual identity difficulties, anxiety and depression or you simply cannot reconnect to your inner safety and peace but you don’t know why. This is a journey of transformation to recover the unique sense of self, who you really are, to be your true self in the world, transforming your pain into your beauty, into your unique way and your light.

Once you have found the way to your ‘Inner Home’, I’ll assist you, throughout the process of transformative counselling, with building resources in order to stay resilient and to walk the path that is unique to you.

You will receive supportive counselling tailored to your needs by an academic, geeky about research and outcomes, and a psychotherapist trained to the highest standards.  I hold a MSc in psychotherapy and MSc in research into human development, both from the University of London. I gained experience as a counsellor working with students at the London School of Economics, with individuals at Mind and with couples at the Marriage Care and the Tavistock Relationships. As an academic I connect extensive research on what works therapeutically with your unique situation.

Everything discussed is strictly confidential and handled with care and sensitivity. 

Relationship Counselling

I am genuinely committed to supporting individuals and couples in transforming their relationships. My goal is to create safe and warm space for you where a deeper level of understanding is possible. I help both individuals and couples open up and experience sharing, communicating and interacting in new ways.

You may need support to heal emotionally after an affair or separation. Couple counselling can recover or discover what is missing from your relationship and work towards creating an emotionally and physically fulfilling relationship. 

This is a  space to reduces couples’ conflict while creating a more secure emotional bond. Sometimes when it feels too late to heal your relationship couple counselling can provide the much needed personal and relationship support.

You will be seen by a therapist who creates a space where partners can provide a sense of security, protection and comfort for each other.

I hold Grad. Certif. in couple counselling from Tavistock. I supporting individuals and families since 2008.

What can you expect from counselling with me?

Sensitivity
Good pace
Clear guidance
Clear time frame
Intense focus
Experiencing the sense of purpose in life again


You can also expect:

Expertise – seeing me privately means that you know who you are working with. You know I am fully qualified, accredited and experienced. Seeing a psychotherapist even in the most respected agency may mean you are allocated to someone who isn’t qualified yet and is building their experience.
Privacy and no awkwardness around bumping into people in waiting areas in clinics.
Direct contact with me via email without the awkwardness of going through an assessment process and liaising with office staff.


On my website you will find the types of psychotherapy I can offer but very often you will see that in the end we will follow a ‘mix and match’ approach. I connect psychotherapeutic research with supportive style, hoping to offer an approach that works for you. My academic background equips me with skills to create a bespoke therapeutic style, addressing your deepest psychotherapeutic needs. 

You are very welcome to email me if you have any questions.

Have a browse on the website and I’m looking forward to meeting you!

‘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.‘

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.’
