About me

Hi, thanks for stopping by.

I wonder what is bringing you here today? Have you been struggling to cope since the pandemic, or perhaps your life had always been a bit overwhelming? Sometimes it is not easy to ask for help but sharing your difficulties with someone who is trained in helping people can change your life for better.

I am a fully qualified and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. I work effectively in a short-term solution-based therapy (up to twelve sessions) or open-ended counselling, whereby the sessions are paced in line with your needs and readiness to embrace positive change.

Since 2010 I have helped many clients struggling with addictions and a variety of mental health problems; including depression, anxiety, self-harm, anger issues and chronic stress to break free and re-build their lives.

My approach

During counselling sessions, I look to form a strong professional relationship with you; based on mutual trust and firm boundaries – to keep us both safe and to optimise the sessions effectiveness. We would work together to understand the roots of your symptoms and their impact in your life. This new awareness will help us to choose a suitable approach for you moving forward, to better manage or even fully relieve your symptoms.

How many sessions do I need?

Depending upon the issues, you may be able to achieve good outcomes through short term work, however you may need to commit to longer term work to achieve positive results – as the root causes may be more complex. In this case I offer the open ended therapy where we can take more time to explore and validate important life events - like a childhood trauma, which may have introduced the symptoms at the first place. In this way we can achieve deeper insight and work towards healing.

Am I ready?

Recovery is only possible with your permission – when you are ready to safely let go of the symptoms and work your way out towards freedom - you chose the pace.

I am fully committed to supporting you along your own counselling path.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and strictly adhere to their professional standards.

I currently offer sessions via a secure online platform and by phone – depending on your preference. I am fluent in English and Polish and I am confident working in either language.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
