K 'Kate' Pisulak Registered Member MBACP Counsellor and Psychoterapist
I am a professional counsellor using a person-centred therapeutic approach. I have a diploma in therapeutic counselling, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Emotion-Focused Therapy.
My professional experience includes work with people from various social back-grounds and of different nationalities with mental health issues, sufferers of abuse or neglect both during childhood and as adults, victims of domestic violence, and working with severe trauma related to sexual abuse or neglect.
I support children and young people suffering from trauma, different forms of neglect and less serious cases of mental health issues. My work is based on a whole-family approach and the issue of the impact of domestic violence on children.
Apart from my professional experience, working with people suffering depression, anxiety and issues around domestic violence has always appealed to me, since I have had direct personal experience of living in an abusive environment myself.

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.

I believe that each of us is different and also unique, each having different talents which, for various reasons, can stay hidden or be impeded. My chosen way of working is known as the person-centred therapeutic approach, not only because this was the main focus of my studies, but also because I believe that every individual is valued and deserves respect. Above all, however, this conviction is my way of life and an inseparable part of my identity.
One of my strong points is an awareness of diversity in our society. Since I come from another country, I have had a chance to observe and get to know different cultural mentalities and experience their consequences, and this has enabled me to see things from different angles.
Building counselling relationships with people with different backgrounds and life histories has always been a big and most wonderful privilege and challenge, especially if at the end of the day I am able to help them feel better, more aware and accepting of themselves, others, and life-changing circumstances.
I am fluent in English and Polish, and I also understand Russian and Czech.
