Dr Malgorzata Bielawska, BA, BSc (Hons), DClinPsy
If you are struggling with depression, anxiety, emotional and relationship difficulties, bereavement, self-harm, trauma, substance abuse or self-medicating issues, then finding the right help is important.
As a clinical psychologist I work with individuals, couples, and families. The first step in any work I undertake is coming to a mutual understanding of the difficulties from a psychological perspective. Such understanding is essential in identifying the right treatment path, based on the best evidence available to psychological science. I have been trained in a range of therapeutic interventions and am able to tailor interventions based on individual needs. I have over ten years experience of working in the NHS (training and post-qualification) in acute and secondary care mental health services. I currently work in secondary care mental health psychotherapy service for people with the diagnoses of depression, anxiety and personality disorders.
