About me

I am a Person-Centred counsellor, which means I work collaboratively with you to develop a personalised approach that fits your unique needs. I especially enjoy supporting individuals dealing with ADHD, Autism, navigating questions of identity and sexuality, or struggling with work stress and burnout. Whether you're facing a difficult life situation or simply want to understand yourself better, I'm here to offer support and guidance. 

In my practice, I create a safe and welcoming space where you can explore your feelings and challenges at your own pace, without judgement.  Whether you're seeking clarity or coping tools, I'm here to walk alongside you on your journey towards greater well-being.

I have experience working both in a time-limited short-term way and in offering longer-term therapy. Throughout my career, I've supported people with a wide range of challenges, working with NHS referrals, employment services, and the charity sector.

Neurodiversity Affirming: I'm committed to working with neurodivergent clients in a neuro-affirming way, valuing their unique experiences and strengths.

Inclusive Practice: I create a safe and affirming space for LGBTQAI+ individuals and members of other marginalised communities.

I hold an MSc Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Strathclyde and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), adhering to their Ethical Framework.

I offer online sessions in English and Polish, with a free initial 20-minute consultation to discuss your needs and see if we are a good fit.

Jestem psychoterapeutą pracującą w nurcie humanistycznym, skoncentrowanym na osobie. W mojej pracy stawiam indywidualne potrzeby i doświadczenia w centrum procesu terapeutycznego. Dostosowuje tempo do potrzeb i oczekiwań klienta,oferując krótko i długoterminowa terapię. W bezpiecznej i wolnej od osadów relacji mogę pomóc w trudnościach w przeżywaniu i wyrażaniu emocji, a także w trudnościach w zaakceptowaniu i polubieniu siebie. Na co dzień wspieram osoby, które mierzą się z trudną sytuacją życiową czy zmagającymi się z depresją i negatywnymi myślami. Terapia może też być pomocna w lepszym zrozumieniu siebie.

Oferuję bezpłatną 20 min konsultację telefoniczna lub wideo, aby omówić potencjalną współpracę.

Member organisations

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.
