I work with individual clients, couples and groups under the supervision of a licensed teacher of Process Work.

I am continuously attending training courses in psychology, psychotherapy and counselling in UK, Poland and other countries.

I  work with adults, teenagers and children. I have been working as a psychologist and counsellor in schools, kindergartens, family centres and community centres. I was voluntering in the Crisis Intervention Centre where I gaind experience in solving various life-crisis situatons. I have completed several internships – at primary school, in a mental health hospital and in two different social welfare centres for people with mental health problems and learning disabilities.

Since 2011 I have my private psychotherapy practice. It was first established in Gdańsk, Poland – where I originally come from. After moving to UK in 2015, I work and live in London. My process-oriented psychotherapy practice is located in Hackney, East London in a walking distance form Homerton Overground Station.

I provide counselling and psychotherapy in person or via Skype.

Personal Information

I love being in the nature, long walks by the sea shore and in the woods. Horse riding is my hobby. I also like travelling and meeting different cultures. I am fascinated by the fact that you can learn so many amazing things about yourself and live in general just by meeting another person or by visiting a new place.
