do you need someone to talk to?
I offer therapeutic support to those who have been experiencing personal difficulties and would like some help to feel better.
No matter what you've been dealing with, and for how long, I believe that things can change.
Take a look below to find out how I can help you.
Hello, I'm Karolina
I am a UKCP-registered integrative psychotherapist and counsellor.
My mission is to provide high quality professional services that help alleviate psychological pain and bring about insight and transformation.
I offer psychotherapy, counselling and coaching to help you heal the wounds from your past, improve your emotional well-being, and move forwards with clarity and purpose.
I am based in London, UK.
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!
welcome to my therapeutic practice
My clinical specialism is in early relational trauma, including childhood trauma and loss. I have extensive knowledge of narcissistic parenting and toxic relationships. I also offer therapeutic support and coaching to women who have experienced narcissistic abuse in a romantic relationship.
Based on proven trauma-informed practices and my own clinical experience, I developed my own integrative therapeutic model, the Hexagon system, to help you achieve effective, in-depth healing in the following areas:
* Self and identity
* Needs and boundaries
* Attachment and life history
* Emotional regulation
* Self-limiting beliefs
* Sex and relationships
* Post-traumatic growth and enrichment
Are you struggling with painful feelings that impact your everyday life?
Life can be unpredictable and sometimes it hurts. Perhaps you're struggling with anxiety, depression, or vague feelings of anger that you can't quite put your finger on. If you're living with unhealed trauma, this can cause a sense of isolation and despair.
Dealing with difficult feelings or circumstances on your own can be overwhelming.
It is all too easy to get caught up in a spiral of negative thoughts. You may blame yourself for not being able to manage, and this makes it so much harder. But it doesn't have to be this way.
It is important to realise that accessing the right support can make a big difference. Therapy can be a place to reflect on your situation, get help with processing painful emotions and find a way forward, so that you can create the life you are hoping for.
Perhaps you carry emotional wounds from your childhood or teenage years. Difficult family dynamics sometimes carry on into adulthood and continue to cause conflict. You may worry that those experiences are holding you back, so that you're missing out on things.
If you have experienced emotional abuse or betrayal in a romantic relationship, this can fuel self-doubt and feelings of not being good enough. At times, you may feel numb and disconnected from yourself and others. You may also be affected by post-traumatic stress.
Coming to therapy can be a first step towards self-compassion and connectedness.
I offer a supportive space where you can talk through what is troubling you, so that you can begin to heal. I welcome clients from diverse ethnic, cultural and spiritual backgrounds and sexual orientation.
The Hexagon System
I developed the Hexagon system as a simple yet effective way to facilitate holistic, in-depth healing and growth within the context of a supportive therapeutic relationship.
As you continue on in therapy, you may find that you wish to address one or more areas in more depth.
