About Me

I am an accredited and experienced adult psychodynamic psychotherapist registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists (TSP) working in private practice in Haggerston. I am also accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist registered with British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABPC).

In the intensive training at Tavistock and Portman Clinic and in my practice I have developed the capacity for analytic listening and creating a non-judgmental and empathetic space. My working curriculum includes leading many individual and group psychotherapy sessions in primary and secondary care in NHS, and in the prestigious Tavistock and Portman Clinic in London. I also held a counsellor post at the Polish Psychologists' Association. Alongside working in private practice, I work as psychotherapist in Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) in NHS.

In addition, as I completed vocational training abroad in Switzerland (WHO), France (AGAPSY), Luxembourg (Ligue Luxembourgeoise d'Hygiène Mentale ), and Belgium (L'Arche), I feel very well equipped to work in a culturally sensitive way in multicultural Britain.

I am fluent in English, French and Polish.
