About me

About me

My name is Ula.

I am a UKCP/MBACP registered Gestalt Psychotherapist and I have been working in various therapeutic settings with adults, children and adolescents for the last eleven years both in private practice as well as a part of a multidisciplinary team in organisations.

I gained an MSc and Diploma in Gestalt psychotherapy from Middlesex University and Diploma in Psychotherapy from Metanoia Institute, London, one of the leading training centres for counsellors and psychotherapists in the UK.

To deepen my professional practice I worked as one of the assistant tutors on a MSc in Gestalt psychotherapy course in Metanoia Institute and as a counselling therapist in a community school in west London. I also facilitated and co-facilitated workshops on stress reduction, mindfulness, body process and resilience.
I have been participating in mindful movement classes/workshops on a regular basis as well as mindfulness meditation courses across Europe. I trained with contemporary Shamans in Scotland. All of these enable me to find a quieter place within myself and enrich my work with clients. Integrating these practices into the therapeutic work supports and grounds me as well as offers a direction in my development as psychotherapist

About Gestalt Psychotherapy


Gestalt therapy focuses on gaining awareness of the present moment in the present context. In therapy, we learn to discover feelings/emotions that may have been suppressed (depressed) or masked by other feelings (behaviours, anxieties, for example) and to accept and trust ourselves.
Therapist may use creativity in their approaches, depending on context and each person's personality. In Gestalt psychotherapy there is an emphasis on direct contact between therapist and client as well as direct experience sometimes referred to as the focus on the “what and how" and the “here and now' of the therapeutic situation. There is growing evidence showing that Gestalt is an effective approach in reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety on a long-term basis.

About the therapy process:

I will offer you the opportunity to feel welcomed just as you are and to explore issues in a compassionate and non-judgemental environment where you'd be able to gain more awareness about yourself in the wider world. You will be able to foster conditions needed for change in order to lead a more full and satisfying life.

We will meet for an initial consultation where we will discuss your needs and decide what would be the best treatment option for you.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
