hi there, I'm Karolina
I'm an integrative psychotherapist and relational trauma specialist. I help both adolescents and adults deal with emotional difficulties including anxiety, depression, grief, loss, trauma and overwhelm.
My specialism is in early relational trauma and narcissistic relationships. I have a special interest in giftedness, high sensitivity (HSP), and the creative arts.
My mission is to help you find in-depth insight and transformation through conversational, somatic and creative therapy so that you can live life to the full without being held back by past emotional wounds, second-guessing and self-doubt.
I am based in London, UK and offer my services online.
a personal welcome note
I'm so glad you've found your way here.
Come say hello and have a peek into my therapy space!
a space to talk
Do you suffer with anxiety, depression, or social anxiety, or battle excessive worry or stress on most days? If so, you are not alone. Often, people come to therapy because they find it difficult to manage their feelings on a day to day basis. Therapy can be a first step towards emotional health and well-being. I offer a confidential space for you to talk things through.
Maybe you can't quite put your finger on why you feel the way you do. All you know is that you are not flourishing in life, despite doing well academically and professionally. It's like a dark cloud is hanging over your head, and a vague sense of emptiness creeps in to stop you from finding joy and contentment. Yet you wonder what might be holding you back.
Stressful circumstances in life can often bring up unhealed emotional pain. You may be concerned about some past events or painful memories and how they've affected you. Perhaps you are becoming aware of certain patterns that seem to repeat themselves in your life, and you wonder why these issues seem to come up again and again.
Deep down, you know that there could be so much more to life, and you wonder what might be holding you back. You would like some support, so that you can stop feeling numb or overwhelmed and start living. Perhaps you dream of using your creative gifts in some way.
Therapy can be a place to acknowledge and validate your feelings, instead of minimising or dismissing them. If you feel ready to explore your feelings, thoughts, memories and patterns of behaviour in some depth, I can help. I offer a safe space to reflect and help you make sense of things. Take a look below to find out how I can help you.
Are you worried for your adolescent child, who seems to be struggling with emotional difficulties yet unable to tell you, the parent, what is wrong?
