Counsellor & Psychotherapist
Welcome, my name is Ania. I’m a counsellor and psychotherapist in advanced clinical training. I offer short-term and long-term counselling and psychotherapy for individuals, couples and groups.
I am an experienced clinical practitioner, having worked at Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service (MCPS) in West London, Phoenix Counselling and Psychotherapy Service in Feltham (London Borough of Hounslow) and Women and Health Counselling and Psychotherapy in Camden, London. My background is in Psychology, and I was a member of the British Psychological Society for many years, before training as a therapist.
My practice is based in a quiet, residential area of NW4 London. It is easily accessible by public transport and there are no parking restrictions.
How I work
My approach is integrative, I appreciate the uniqueness of each person’s inner world and language and I adapt my way of working to meet their needs. I strive to create a new therapy for each client, to find the best way for us to work together.
I work relationally, focusing on building a relationship with my clients that itself becomes the agent of change. I am human and let nothing human be alien to me, I aim to remove obstacles to growth by offering genuineness, unconditional positive regard, and an atmosphere of accurate empathy, safety, professional holding, mutual trust, and nurturing attunement.
Psychoeducation and group workshops
Knowledge can be empowering, sometimes it’s good to know what works and how, and what options are available to increase flexibility of behavioural responses and communication. For many people, starting with safe knowing is a gentle way of allowing themselves to feel and get in touch with deeper sensations.
