Sometimes, you might have a lot of anxiety, loneliness, sadness or anger, and you don’t know why or what to do about it. Maybe relationships are difficult. You might feel numb or lacking in confidence or motivation. Your emotions are valid and trying to tell you something. I'm a BACP-registered psychotherapist, and I make use of counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), compassion-focused therapy (CFT) and Attachment Theory to help you if you are experiencing any kind of distress, low mood or impaired functioning. I may be able to help you to reduce symptoms, improve coping methods, and address the root causes.

Hello and thank you for connecting with me. Are you fed up feeling fed up? I completely understand and am here to help. I support women who have issues with confidence and self-esteem. This may be because of challenging personal relationships, family issues, trauma, domestic or childhood abuse or just the many challenges life brings. Sometimes, we may be unsure why we feel the way we do, but have a strong sense that things could be brighter. Peeling back the layers of our lives takes great courage, but change is possible, indeed inevitable, when we take that leap of faith.

Hello and welcome. If you are reading this, you are likely feeling in a stuck, difficult or distressing place in your life. We all bring a unique history and mind-set to the life difficulties we encounter. These will have given us strengths to help manage problems, but sometimes we need to discover new ways we might feel, think or act. I think of my specialism as 'stuckness' - whether in emotions, relationships or unhelpful behaviours - which is often expressed in terms such as: anxiety, depression, stress, fear, trauma, low self-esteem, sleep problems, bulimia and binge eating, adjustment to loss, illness & major life changes.

Where do my patterns come from and do they seem to be driving your life? It may be very confusing. Your emotions may be very energetic or perhaps you feel stuck and that nothing will ever change. You may think that you're feeling nothing. Experience of numbness or 'nothing' ARE feelings and are signs of a functioning emotional system, it may be useful to have support in making sense of these feelings.

My name is Katarzyna, but I’m also known as Kat. I am a relational counsellor. I use an integrative approach drawing from different counselling schools so that I can tailor your sessions to what works best for you. Attachment theory plays a crucial role in my approach. Attachment styles determine the way people perceive themselves and the world. We are the way we are because of our past. Think of all the messages you have heard from other people that you have internalised. Increasing self-awareness in my clients plays an important role and it is often a first step to change.

It can be incredibly difficult to explore painful or uncomfortable feelings and experiences. It is natural to avoid problems and build walls around parts of ourselves as a self-protective measure. In the long term however, these things often catch up with us and we can find ourselves feeling lost, depressed or out of touch with who we are.

My way of working is integrative which involves incorporating various therapeutic approaches into therapy. I value the subjectivity and diversity of all experiences and believe that one approach to therapy does not meet all needs. In working this way, I am guided by the theory and values of person-centred therapy (PCT) and integrate other approaches, namely cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and schema therapy. For me, the therapeutic relationship is essential in achieving desired therapeutic outcomes therefore, I aim to develop this relationship first and foremost.

Deciding to engage in therapy is a positive and brave decision to embark on a journey of self-discovery. As a qualified therapist with ten years experience, my role is to create a secure base and be a guide for you, so that you can take up this challenge of self-discovery and move towards greater consciousness, choice and positivity. While working with difficulties in the present many have their origins in emotional experiences and unconscious emotional learning in early life relationships. Also events and consistent experiences, which may amount to degrees of difficulty, pain or trauma.

I have a particular interest in working with people with relationship problems, including their relationship with their self and, with their own emotions and emotional regulation. This can manifest as social anxiety, with an underlying sense of not being good enough or being odd/not fitting in with other people and society’s expectations. If you struggle with your own identity - not knowing your own likes/dislikes/values (sometimes called codependency), then get in touch. We can explore together what gets in the way of you knowing (and accepting) the real you.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

Counsellors and Psychotherapists listed in the directory are members of the main professional associations, mainly the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). Most Psychologists in the directory are accredited members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and/or are registered in the Health and Care Professions Council (HPCP).

Providers whose professional membership or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Given that professional memberships are not a statutory requirement for psychotherapists and counsellors in the UK, certain qualified professionals or organisations may choose not to maintain such memberships despite possessing the necessary qualifications. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists can all provide counselling or talking therapy and have credentials and experience that enable them to do so in the UK. Psychologists have earned a degree in psychology and many are members of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have completed a postgraduate qualification in a specialism. Counsellors and Psychotherapists are not required to have a psychology degree, but to belong to a professional organisation such as the BACP or UKCP, they are required to have completed a training course as well as clinical and supervision hours.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the UK could be between £30 - £60 when seeing a counsellor and £60 - £150 and up when seeing a clinical psychologist. If you have private insurance, your plan may cover some if not all of your sessions. You should contact your insurance provider to determine if they provide coverage for therapy sessions and to determine what, if any, requirements they might have in order for your sessions to be covered, such as a referral from your GP or medical specialist.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

If you are struggling to access therapy due to budget constraints, you could also consider public funded mental health services. The NHS Talking therapies programme offers free of charge counselling for common mental health problems like anxiety and depression. The service is available to anyone registered with a GP, though you do not necessarily need to be referred by your GP and can refer yourself directly to a Talking therapies service. The service will provide different solutions, including group and individual therapy, for a limited number of sessions which are generally up to six.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Therapists who are part of a professional organisation such as the BACP, the UKCP, or BPS are bound by an ethical framework that requires them to uphold a confidentiality agreement. Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship and only under specific circumstances, such as when there has been participation in a criminal act or act of terror, or if there is potential or known harm to the client or others, will a therapist be obligated to break the agreement. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed during the initial consultation.
