Marta Zdzieblowska, Integrative Psychotherapist, BA (Hons), PGDip, MBACP
I offer a warm, creative and reaserch backed approach to modern day mental health issues in Central and East London.
Modern life can be demanding and overwhelming, a lot of people feel isolated in their struggles, pushing pain away just to get by. You may feel an underlying sense of unease even if things look fine from the outside.
Together, we can create a space for you to step back from the noise and focus on what matters to you, explore both your difficulties and aspirations.This can be an entry point to living life with more meaning, more joy and connection with yourself and others.
As an integrative practitioner I draw on a range of psychological approaches that I will adapt to your needs. These include Psychodynamic, Humanistic as well as, Positive Psychology or Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy. Above all else I will listen to you attentively and respectfully; we can then both decide on the direction of our work together.
I see counselling as a process of creative collaboration which does not need to be limited to a dialogue. Some people find it helpful to explore deeply ingrained patterns or complex feelings through guided imagery, dream work, drawing or movement. Others find that mindfulness-based cognitive approaches are well suited to their needs. There are many options, together we can find what would be most helpful to you.
I warmly invite you for an initial consultation without further commitment. It will be a chance for us to meet each other, discuss your hopes and worries about the counselling process and find out how we could work together.
I offer both time-limited and open-ended counselling, in English and Polish.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling, validated by Middlesex University and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
To ensure the safety and the quality of my practice, I am in regular supervision. I am a registered member of the BACP and I adhere to their Ethical Framework.
Psychosynthesis is an integrative psychological approach that can be adapted to your needs. Psychosynthesis combines current psychological research and wisdom of Eastern traditions. It offers a holistic view of the psyche which encompasses your pain and difficulties as well as your unique potential. It acknowledges your complexity and it takes your mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing into consideration.
