About me and my therapy practice

My name is Kamil, I am fully qualified, MBACP Accredited and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. I offer a warm, confidential and non-judgemental environment for individual clients and couples. I truly believe that change is possible for everyone. I have confidence to be able to provide enough support to help you to find the best coping strategies to change your life for the better.

​Together we will identify your problems, focus on finding solutions and discover your best coping strategies for all that life throws at you. I use mindfulness, breathing exercises, muscle relaxation and many more strategies.

We will challenge your beliefs and look at different perspectives. Together we will challenge negative thoughts and help you focus on your attachment styles which we have all unconsciously learnt from childhood; looking at how they play significant roles in our current relationships.

 I have experience working with clients suffering from a wide range of issues

Therapy sessions are face to face in my own home therapeutic office or online and last one hour. I am a native Polish speaker and can carry out sessions in both English and Polish.

Practice description

I have experience working with single  clients suffering from a wide range of issues which include; depression, anxiety, PTSD, anger, rage, relationship issues, childhood abuse, sexual abuse, domestic abuse, low self-esteem, bullying, sadness, coping with serious health conditions, stress, suicidal thoughts, personality disorders, despair, change, addictions, low self-confidence, self-harm, trauma, grief, identity, sexual orientation.

I have a straight forward, caring and honest attitude. I am passionate in supporting you to live your best possible life. 

I am a fully qualified couple and relationship therapist, holding an advanced certificate in relationship therapy approved by The College of Sexual and Relationship Therapies. I am able to help you find the right balance of understanding within your relationship. I work with couples in conflict looking to find positive conflict management techniques, dealing with affairs and the anger, blame, frustration and lack of trust this can bring. Together we will work to see how you can meet your partners needs and explore how each of you can have your needs met in the relationship.

LGBTQ+ 

I am trained to work with gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgender and queer clients as well as other representations of sexual orientations and gender identities.

I can help with difficulties around 'coming out', stigma, impact on mental health, childhood bias, gender identity, high risk sexual behaviours and look to create goals and specific treatment plans.

Provide Guidance, Inspiration and Support

I use a variety of practical tools along side the therapeutic practises, these include; Sand tray - this can help you to see your own world from different perspectives, allowing you to stand back and reflect on your life.

I create a safe space for you to be able to be yourself
