About me

Hello, I'm Marta, and I sincerely appreciate your interest in exploring my profile. As a certified therapist, psychologist, educator, and mindfulness yoga teacher, I'm dedicated to helping individuals embark on their therapeutic journey.

With over 7 years of experience working with both adults and children across the UK and Europe, I offer a range of services designed to support your well-being and personal growth. My expertise encompasses individual therapy, mindfulness-based yoga, and empowering workshops.

In my practice, I've discovered that while traditional talk therapy is powerful, a holistic approach is even more effective. By grounding my clients in their experiences and incorporating mindfulness and breathing techniques, I help them navigate their emotional challenges more sustainably. This approach is particularly valuable for issues like anxiety, depression, trauma and somatic healing.

My passion for the human body, stress management, and holistic healing has driven me to undergo extensive training in areas like neuroscience, the nervous system (with a focus on the vagus nerve),  human anatom, somatic healing, yoga nad mindfulness. I firmly advocate for a mindful and authentic approach to life and relationships. I work with clients dealing with family issues, loneliness, and social anxiety, firmly believing that the path to balanced relationships lies in self-healing and reconnecting with one's authentic self.

In the therapeutic process, I equip you with tools to uncover your self-worth, break free from negative self-beliefs, and transform your relationship with yourself. I'm here to accompany you on this vital journey towards healing and rediscovering your authenticity and inner strength.

I'm also the founder of 'The Cool Monkey,' where I host emotional literacy workshops for children. We offer after-school sessions for kids aged 2-14, focusing on yoga, mindfulness, and breathing techniques. Additionally, I regularly host webinars and workshops for parents, covering topics such as emotional literacy, stress management, and understanding emotions.

I'm currently working with How2Edu, an innovative educational application in Poland, where I create well-being and psychological content. In the past, I dedicated my time to charities like HomeStart and LifeChanges in England, providing counseling and mentoring to those in need.

Before my career as a therapist, I served as an emotional support worker for children in primary and secondary schools. This experience highlighted the profound influence of childhood on our adulthood. It's become clear to me that my calling is to support others on their personal journeys.

As I continue to expand my knowledge in yoga therapy, I'm also pursuing a postgraduate diploma in clinical psychology for children and youth. I welcome you to reach out for more information, and I offer a free 30-minute initial consultation where we can discuss your needs and how I can support you.
