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)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
