About me

I am a fully qualified, English and Polish speaking, psychotherapist in a private practice. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their ethical framework. As required by the BACP, I am in supervision myself and I am covered by professional liability insurance.

I offer confidential, face to face psychotherapy to individuals (adults), couples and groups covering a wide range of issues, both long and short term. I work with a person-centred approach developed by Carl Rogers. Person-centred counselling is relationship based and its core principles are authenticity, acceptance and empathy. It is non-directive in the sense that you, as the client, decide what you want to discuss, and I will move at your own pace. You are the expert in what feels the most troubling and I, as your therapist, provide an empathic, accepting, genuine space for you to be fully heard.

Jestem w pełni wykwalifikowaną, polskojęzyczną terapeutką, prowadzącą prywatną praktykę. Jestem zarejestrowana z Brytyjskim Towarzystwem Doradztwa i Psychoterapii (BACP - British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) i pracuję zgodnie z ich zasadami etycznymi. Zgodnie z wymaganiami BACP moją pracę terapeutyczną poddaję regularnej superwizji; jestem również ubezpieczona od odpowiedzialności zawodowej. Oferuję psychoterapię indywidualną dorosłych, terapię par, rodzinną oraz grupową, zarówno krotko- jak i długoterminową, z zachowaniem pełnej poufności. Prowadzę terapię skoncentrowaną na osobie stworzoną przez Carla Rogers'a (person-centred therapy, terapia rogeriańska). Terapia ta oparta jest na relacji terapeuty z klientem, a jej główne założenia to autentyczność relacji, akceptacja i empatia. Jest to podejście "nie kierunkujące", tzn. że to klient decyduje, nad czym chce pracować i to on/ona nadaje tempo pracy terapeutycznej. To klient jest ekspertem, w tym co go/ją najbardziej gnębi, a terapeuta tworzy empatyczną, akceptującą i autentyczną przestrzeń, w której klient jest w pełni rozumiany.

Member organisations


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.
