I was born in Poland where I gained a substantial medical education and worked for many years supporting vulnerable adults as part of a healthcare team.
I completed a bachelor’s degree in custodial education and continued my studies to complete a Master’s degree in social rehabilitation. My post-graduate studies concentrated on counselling and psychotherapy, where I trained in a pluralistic approach specifically concentrating on an outcome-oriented approach to psychotherapy.
I graduated with Diploma from BeeLeaf Institute in Contemporary Psychotherapy.
I am a registered Member of BACP, an accredited Member of The National Counselling Society and a full member of Community for Contemporary Psychotherapy and abide by their code of ethics.

How I can help you
It can be hard to reach out when you are in need of help. The best way to start to heal is by simply talking things through. Let's start your healing process by taking this first step.
The work of therapy is there to help you understand yourself, the way you are in the world and to potentially reconnect you with long-lost feelings. Connecting you to what is emotionally true can be both calming and revitalising and can support you to think with more flexibility and help you to develop emotional resilience.
Therapy takes place over an appropriate period of time for each person and is flexible according to your needs and resources. It can be short term - usually 6 to 12 sessions structured and focused on solving the identified problem or situation. Or it can be long term - lasting from a few months up to a few years, helping to explore more deep-rooted issues or difficulties.
Psychotherapy can support you with a range of issues. The following is an example of some of the issues that people may wish to seek therapy for:
Family and relationship issues or difficulties
Sadness, depression, emptiness
Lack of confidence, low self-esteem, issues around self-worth
Self-harm or suicidal thoughts
Anxiety, stress, panic or fear
Abuse – sexual, physical, emotional, financial, bullying
Obsessive or addictive behaviour
Identity, belonging, motivation and purpose
Loneliness, isolation, intimacy and connection
Bereavement, loss and grief
Illness, death and dying
Work-related issues or stress
Life transitions and change
Existential issues – the meaning of life
