My name is Agnieszka, I work as Psychotherapist. I can give you a safe, confidential and reflective space in which you can share your troubled feelings and thoughts without judgement.

The therapeutic approach I adopt, utilizes and integrates the main contemporary psychotherapy approaches.
The main goal of psychotherapy is to strengthen and develop a person and help him or her to cope effectively with the symptoms and problems. Among other things that contribute to successful psychotherapy are: a safe, supportive respectful therapeutic relationship, incorporating insights into how childhood affected person's present, discovery and rebound from emotional trauma, overwork of dysfunctional cognitive schemas and dysfunctional behaviours. Personal development, which happens in psychotherapy is understood as the integration of all spheres of the human person: biological, emotional, volitional, behavioural and spiritual.
You need not, in fact cannot, teach an acorn to grow into an oak tree, but when given a chance, its intrinsic potentialities will develop. Similarly, the human individual, given a chance, tends to develop his particular human potentialities.
