Hello and Welcome to my profile. My name is Pauline Pachucki and I am a qualified person-centered counsellor offering a low cost one to one professional counselling service in and around the Essex Borough of Thurrock. Although I am qualified as a person-centered counsellor, I also work with an integrative approach.This means that I use different approaches to suit individual client needs as every client is different. I work with people from different cultures and backgrounds with respect for individual personal choices and values.
I offer an environment which is confidential, warm, welcoming, non-judgmental and accepting. A space in which you can feel free and safe to talk about your worries, fears, anything that you may be struggling with at your own pace. You will be listened to in a way that will enable you get a better understanding of yourself and your concerns. I am here to walk beside you on your journey.
Counselling can help to empower you and feel more in control. It enables you to feel better equipped to face life's difficult challenges. Counselling encourages you to make changes that enable you to move forward and live your life fully and positively.
I specialise in bereavement and depression. I also work with teenagers dealing with concerns around school, exams, relationships and anxiety. Other areas I specialise in include cross-cultural relationships and cultural identity.
I work on a short and long term basis depending on individual needs.

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.
