I am a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist registered with BPC and BACP. I am also a member of Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists.
I work at my private practice in South West London and within the NHS, where I provide staff counselling, wellbeing training, short-term interventions, trauma service and stress management to staff of the Trust.
I have experience working with a range of psychological and emotional difficulties including:
- Anxiety, panic attack, phobias
- Bereavement loss,
- Eating disorders, body image issues,
- Self-harm, abuse,
- Relationships and work difficulties
Many people experience emotional difficulties at some point in their life. Sometimes we feel we are ‘not right' and we don’t know why. Unresolved issues past or present can create stress, anxiety, depression and may impact your everyday life. If you feel overwhelmed, unhappy or alone perhaps talking with a professional can help.
I provide a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space for you to talk about whatever is troubling you. I work psychodynamically, which involves talking about your early life experience and how this experience may affect you now. I work both in a time-limited and open-ended way. Treatment can continue for as long or short a time as you wish.

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.
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.
British Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My Counselling Sessions
After an initial telephone call we will meet for an assessment consultation. During this time you can decide whether psychodynamic therapy is something that is suitable for you.
Sessions last 50 minutes and take place weekly at the agreed time, except during bank holidays and breaks (summer, Easter, and Christmas).
I offer psychotherapy in English and Polish.
