Magdalena (Meg) Szczurek
My name is Meg. I am a qualified and experienced Bilingual Counsellor. I offer a safe and supportive therapy in confidential settings for Adults, Teenagers and Couples where we can both explore any difficulties, distress which you may be experiencing or even dissatisfaction with life.
I provide emotional support to those who suffer with all types of mental and domestic health distress (depression,trauma, anxiety and stress), relationship issues, support for clients who's close ones suffer from substance misuse and as a result have lost their self-confidence and self-worth.
My professional experience provided me with an opportunity to build positive and productive relationships with a range of people from different age groups, various backgrounds and with complex needs.
I also offer support and guidance for couples who struggle with everyday stress in their lives which could have negative impacts on their relationship, lack of communication between themselves and a lack of listening and intimacy.
In my practice, I use Person-Centred approach although I use many aspects from different approaches like Humanistic, Integrative approach, Gestald, TA and CBP which means that my role is to help my clients to reach their authentic self by creating a safe environment for them and to make them feel fully accepted by me. By showing you my empathy, we will explore various aspects of your life and feelings, talking about them freely and openly in a way that is rarely possible with friends or family.
I also use other techniques in my therapy room such as Matryoshka dolls, emotional cards, stones and other forms of art therapy. I offer also walking therapy in nature which could help you to concentrate and reveal your hidden emotions or problems if you feel it is right for you.

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.
