About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Agnieszka

Sometimes we need a safe place to talk about how we feel and what we’re going through.

Whether there are present life challenges or past experiences that trigger difficult feelings like stress, anxiety, low mood, or feeling overwhelmed, having someone who will listen to you with understanding and without judgment is the start of healing.

Difficult situations, particularly traumatic ones, can leave us for years unable to develop and lead happy lives. They can effect our self-esteem and self-worth, forming successful relationships and disrupting our life plans and dreams . 

I am a qualified psychologist and an integrative counsellor. I’ve developed my counselling training to be a trauma informed counsellor and, in my work, I use three phase trauma model to support clients who experience trauma related symptoms like anxiety or panic attacks. This model includes use of different grounding techniques to help clients to manage those difficult symptoms and feel more empowered and in control. Also, we would work together to explore thoughts and feelings which help you to understand yourself better and make sense of what you’re going through, and to find the best way forward.

My work focus is to help people to feel more empowered, to strengthen their self-esteem, build happier relationships and cope better with life challenges. 

My first session

In our first session we will talk about what has brought you to counselling and what your hopes are for it. We also may carry out an assessment if necessary, which is very helpful to better understand the level of your difficulties and the best approach to follow. I will also explain the way I work and you will be able to ask any questions that you have regarding the counselling process. 

The fee for the first session is £35.00.
