About me

I am an Integrative counsellor working in the three main approaches: Person-centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural therapy. Being an Integrative counsellor means that I can tailor my approach by using different modalities to suit your individual needs.

I was born in Poland and after years there working as a High School teacher, I moved to England and, later, trained in counselling. I often combine my expertise in these two professions by working with adolescents for Heads Together at YMCA in Redhill. I also counsel bereaved people and families in Saint Catherine’s Hospice in Crawley . I have now enjoyed living in the UK for over 16 years.

I work with both young people and adults. I am Registered Member of BACP.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
