Couples and relationship therapy
I am an experienced and highly qualified counselling psychologist in private practice in the City of London.
I have over a decade of clinical experience in providing talking therapy to diverse client groups, supported by extensive psycho-philosophical training and self-development practice. I have worked effectively with individuals (adults, adolescents, children 4+) and couples with broad spectrum of psychological need and problems, most common being: depression, anxiety (including panic, phobias, trauma, OCD, work-related stress), mood disorders, eating disorders, psychosexual issues, relationship and family issues, life transitions and loss and bereavement.
I hold a Doctoral Degree in Counselling Psychology and Masters Degree in General Psychology.
I am a BPS accredited Chartered Counselling Psychologist and HCPC Registered Practitioner Psychologist.
I am a member of the Society of Existential Analysis and the Polish Psychologists' Association.
I am a registered provider with major insurance companies (please enquire).
I work within both long term (open-ended) and short term (time-limited, e.g., 8-12 sessions) frameworks.
In my work I use insights from existential-humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural approaches (mainly Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, ACT), to tailor therapy around your individual needs.
My aim is to help us develop a meaningful, relational and safe space, where you could gain in-depth understanding of your difficulty 'in context'. We could then help you clarify a sense of direction and obtain the necessary 'skill', courage and resilience to (re-)build your reality in a way that will help you grow, a reality in which you would be able to live with greater confidence, sense of ownership, meaning and purpose.
Kat, I can't thank you enough for all you've done for me. Seeing you was a truly transformative experience that helped me overcome my depression and my drastically low self-esteem. I have learned to relate to myself in a more accepting way and I will always remember some of the things you told me. You have been so welcoming and made me feel like an important human being. Your warmth, emotional generosity, and professional attitude were above and beyond what I expected from a therapist.
