My Story

My Journey to Becoming Your Therapeutic Ally

Born in Poland in the late seventies, I grew up in a world that was both rich in culture and challenging due to the political climate of the time. These early experiences contributed to my resilience and adaptability, qualities that I bring into my work as a therapist today. In my adult life, I have explored various roles – from working in the transport industry to venturing into entrepreneurship. These diverse experiences have enriched my understanding of the myriad paths life can take and the unique challenges each can present.

I moved to the UK in my late twenties, a significant transition that marked a new chapter in my life and eventually led me to the field of psychotherapy. Today, as an integrative psychotherapist, I draw on a wide range of therapeutic approaches to meet the unique needs of each client. My practice is grounded in empathy, respect, and a deep commitment to helping others navigate their own paths towards healing and growth.

My Integrative Psychotherapy Approach

A Unique Approach to Healing

As an integrative psychotherapist, I tailor my approach to the unique needs of each individual I work with. At the heart of my practice is the belief that everyone holds the capacity for growth and healing. My role is to facilitate this process in a supportive, empathetic, and non-judgmental environment.

My training is based on a helpful idea called the Five Relationship Model by Petruska Clarkson. It’s a way of looking at how people relate to each other, which helps me understand and support you better.

This model talks about different kinds of relationships we all have in our lives. It helps me use a mix of methods to support you in the best way possible, no matter what you are going through. Whether you’re facing tough times, dealing with mental health issues, or wanting to understand yourself better, this idea guides me to help you gain self-awareness, become stronger, and grow personally.

So, in our sessions, we’ll explore your relationships and experiences together in a way that’s easy to understand, aiming to make positive changes in your life.

The Foundation of My Practice

My professional foundation in therapy is built upon a series of rigorous academic and practical qualifications. These credentials not only reflect my commitment to the field but also ensure that I provide informed and effective support to all my clients.

Keeping the Learning Flame Alive

I'm passionate about the ever-evolving world of therapy. In fact, ethical therapists, like myself, must participate in a minimum of 30 hours of continuous professional development (CPD) training every year. I don't believe in just meeting the minimum, though. I'm always eager to dive deeper, ensuring I stay updated with the latest insights, techniques, and research. This dedication ensures that I can always offer the best in our sessions.
