Integrative Therapist

I am an HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist and a certified psychotherapist with over ten years of experience.

Understanding the client’s inner world is the most important starting point of my therapeutic work. This allows me to provide a safe and accepting tailored approach based on different therapeutic models and techniques, including:

cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT)

– schema therapy (SFT)

– solution-focused brief therapy

– role playing

– art techniques

I am devoted to constantly improving and updating my knowledge and skills by participating in training and professional conferences. I am also following the scientific and theoretical development in the fields of psychotherapy and clinical psychology.

I have a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and completed a 4-year postgraduate course in Cognitive-Behavioral Psychotherapy at CTPB Poland, in cooperation with Oxford Cognitive Therapy Center, UK. I hold a postgraduate diploma in Clinical Psychology for Children and Adolescents. I am also trained in schema therapy, solution-focused therapy, and art therapy.

Over the past decade, I have worked with clients from a variety of cultures and backgrounds.

My past experience working in international corporations and advertising agencies gives me a broad understanding of the challenges my clients face in various work environments.

I provide long-term and short-term psychotherapy in English and Polish.

I am also an author of scientific papers in emotion perception and a lecturer in post-graduate CBT training for psychotherapists.

I work with clients who are dealing with the following difficulties:

Insurances I work with: AXA, Aviva, Vitality, Cigna, Simply Health, WPA and others.
