Sessions from £60.00



I have availability on Mondays afternoon in Hove. You are welcome to enquire.

About me and my therapy practice

Welcome! I am a relational Gestalt psychotherapist specialising in anxiety and depression and trauma. I work online with people all over the UK, as well as face-to-face in Brighton and London. I work in Polish and English.

I imagine that you have come here because you want to grow and develop, whether you are new to therapy or have already had it in the past. I know that life can be tough and painful. I am here, available to support you in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental atmosphere.

Do you feel stuck, trapped or overwhelmed and struggling to believe that things can change for the better?

Do you get easily sad, anxious, upset or angry and cannot understand why?

Do you have racing thoughts and are good at predicting what could go wrong?

Are you struggling with self-love and self-compassion?

If you answered 'yes' to any of these questions, then how about having an initial consultation with me to find out how I can help you?

Practice description

How I Work

I meet you as you are -that is- a 'whole person' (Gestalt means 'whole'). This includes your thinking, feelings, imagination, dreams and any other experience you may have. We will explore your experience together in a safe, non-judgement and confidential space, in a way which is suited to your needs and preferences. 

In my experience, when clients give space to, become curious about, and acknowledge feelings that arise for them in their therapeutic explorations, healing happens, and clients often say that something has 'resolved' within them.

What I Can Help You With

I can help you to understand yourself better, strengthen your ability to believe in and trust yourself, and develop kindness and acceptance towards yourself. 

I can support you, if you are interested, to use your body awareness as a way of supporting yourself in difficult situation to become more confident, assertive, and grounded. 

I can support you to understand how past situations may still be impacting you in your life in a way which will bring you peace and a sense of resolution.
