I believe that therapy should be tailored to the person, therefore I will try to create the best space for you which will help you to open and look for solutions and explore the areas of difficulties.
I have received an extensive training in both Psychology and Psychotherapy. I work integratively with the use of various psychotherapeutic approaches, including: systemic, psychodynamic, person-centred cognitive - behavioral (CBT) and hypnotherapy.

Over the years I have gained a wealth of valuable experience from working within both Poland and the UK. Within Poland my role was as a Psychologist, in which I worked for Polish Institute of Oncology, where I was providing clients with psychological support and counselling (2012-2015). I have also been consulting families and their children in the Family Centre 'DIADA' in Gliwice (2015). At the end of 2015 I moved to the UK where I have been working with in different NHS services. I have provided support to patients of the Mental Health Wards of Laureate House (Wythenshawe) and Park House (North Manchester) with therapeutic interventions in groups (2017-2018).
I was also responsible of running therapeutic groups for elderly clients of Whittaker Day Hospital in Ashton-under-Lyne (2019). Alongside of my other roles, in October 2016 I started working privately. I have been collaborating with other organisations and charities including charity Together Family Centre. Since 2020, I have been working as a contracted Psychologist and Psychotherapist for The Rooms (Poynton, Knutsford). My passion is providing therapy to the wider/ local community. I am happy to offer psychotherapy, counselling and psychological support.
