Kinga Scott, BSc (Hons) Psych, PG Dip, MBACP
I am an open, down-to-earth, compassionate therapist providing a confidential and friendly counselling and psychotherapy service. I can work in Polish or English.
Our sessions can provide you with a safe space in which you can explore yourself, your feelings and concerns. Our aim will be to help you develop your autonomy, achieve personal growth and lead to positive changes in your life. Together we can help you to find ways to move forward in difficult times.
My model of practice
My core training was based in person-centred and relational approach which means that I am deeply committed to building and maintaining a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients. At the same time, I am able to incorporate different therapeutic methods as and when required; I can use CBT techniques that can be especially useful when working with anxiety, depression, phobias, among others; I can draw from the theory of Transactional Analysis (TA) which is based on language, concepts and techniques that are easy to understand and jargon-free, and in very simple terms can help to understand how and why we interact with others the way we do.
There are many forms of therapy and schools of thoughts, too many for a single person to learn them all, but I am committed to continuous professional development (CPD) which I do by completing further training, attending workshops and doing further reading.
I believe that everyone is a unique and valuable individual with a capacity and potential for personal growth and positive change. I want to offer my clients the environment in which this growth and change can happen; I'll endeavour to tailor our sessions to meet your individual needs.

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.

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).
