About me

I am a bilingual counsellor (English-Polish) registered with BACP. I am passionate about helping people change their life experiences from something that brings them down, into these that build them up.

I have 10-year experience in providing therapeutic help to people affected by learning disabilities and sensory loss (sight and hearing). This also includes helping people with neurodiverse presentations – Asperger’s Syndrome and more pronounced forms of autism. Additional clinical training has enabled me to help people affected by eating disorders and disruptive body image.

My approach is integrative and existential. This means that I have created it based on different therapies that naturally fit my personality and my style into a coherent whole. At its center there are themes that are universal and comprise the inescapable part of human life, existential themes. We are all dependent on other people, yet often we feel lonely. We all strive to make our lives meaningful and get depressed when it is not so. We have a finite time to live but can choose to make it worthwhile.

This is where I can help. Understanding you and your problems in all their complexities is the first step. This is how I endeavour to make the therapy a safe, confidential and creative place to aid you with difficulties that life has thrown your way.

I am an Associate Counselor with PAM Wellbeing Group. Recently,  Gloucestershire County Council and School of Hard Knocks. I have provided counselling service to Helen Kegie Center for Therapies in Newport and Cruse Bereavement Care (Cardiff and Vale Branch) and worked extensively in third sector (Citizens Advice Bureau)

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
