Kiedy jest nam źle, to normalne że chcemy aby było lepiej. Może nas coś boli, martwi albo przeszkadza nam pewna sytuacja i zastanawiamy się co zrobić, jak rozwiązać nasz problem. Wtedy możemy porozmawiać z psychoterapeutą, osobą która zna się na ludzkiej psychologii (myślach, emocjach, zachowaniach) i która wie, jak pomoc: zrozumieć skąd się bierze problem i jak się z nim zmierzyć. Jako psychoterapeutka pomagam poprzez rozmowę i znam różne sposoby poruszania trudnych tematów, aby było łatwo, emocjonalnie bezpiecznie, ale też konkretnie i skutecznie. Zależnie od problemu, zaproponuję counselling albo psychoterapię.

Children and teenagers can benefit from counselling therapies, and studies show that these are hugely effective, both in the short and long term. For older kids and teens, talking therapy can provide a unique space to safely explore what's going on to make them sad, angry, or anxious. For younger children, using play and art, as well as talking therapy, can help them begin to piece together things that might be difficult for them. Life doesn't always go according to plan, and sometimes things happen that no one is prepared for - an accident, a traumatic experience, a situation no one could have foreseen happening.

We all experience various symptoms and problems throughout life, and it’s my job to help you achieve significant and meaningful change. I won’t bore you with therapy jargon either, there’s probably more pressing issues on your mind, and I know what that's like.

My introduction to counselling and psychotherapy was as a client more than thirty years ago. Now I enjoy helping other people to find their ways through a wide range of life events and challenges. With impartial help to express yourself, unravel your thoughts and feelings, and review your ideas, decisions and beliefs it becomes easier to make sense of what's happening. It then becomes possible to explore your needs, wishes and options, and to find a way through. Perhaps it's difficult to put into words whatever is troubling you - maybe I can help you to find them?

Hello, my name is Anna Planedin and I am a person-centered and psychodynamic psychotherapist. I'm interested in helping people find relief and movement from a place of feeling 'stuck.' I specialize in working with loss, chronic pain, trauma, life transitions, shame and sex/sexuality. I view therapy as a process of helping others listen to their gut feelings, find safety and containment and feel less alone in overwhelming life experiences. It is my hope that through speaking about difficult or taboo feelings with me, you will feel understood and accepted, and that over time you feel more powerful in how you respond to difficulty.

I view therapy as a collaborative space where one can be seen, heard, and understood. Our work together will support you to delve into the depths of the experiences you wish to explore, whether from your past, present, or anticipated future. I will pose gentle questions, offer sensitive reflections, and hold a confidential and compassionate space for the emotions and vulnerabilities that arise. Together, we will learn to care for the neglected parts of yourself, explore patterns you may find unhelpful, and listen to your inner needs and feelings, fostering a space for acceptance and growth.
