About me

Hello. My name is Monika and I am a qualified Person Centred Psychotherapist and I am passionate about what I do. I believe that everyone has to ability to grow, and with the help of a counsellor, positive changes and success can be achieved.

The fact that you have accessed this webpage to find help is a great first step and one you should be proud of. Reaching out isn’t always easy and can be daunting, but once that barrier has been broken, you will be well away on your counselling journey. I provide a safe, confidential, friendly and supportive therapeutic environment which will able you to express your feelings and worries, and allow you to be heard.

Training, qualifications & experience

I offer one to one therapy for adults, and tailor my counselling methods to suit your needs. I will work with you and provide the time and space for you to build your confidence, increase your skills and be able to better understand yourself.

My areas of work are:

  • Relationships
  • Abuse
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Workplace stress
  • Bereavement
  • Low self-esteem
  • Bullying
  • Self-harm
  • Suicidal Ideation
  • Family breakdown

I’ve worked with clients who do not know or understand what is going on with them, but with some encouragement and guidance, they have found that therapy has been successful in unlocking their uncertainty.

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.

I believe it’s important to have a good therapeutic relationship between the counsellor and the client which is why I offer a free telephone Consultation which would allow us to be introduced, for me to explain the next steps into counselling and answer any questions you may have. I welcome individuals from all races, religions, cultures and sexual orientation.
