Meet Karolina

Brand photo 2023_edited.png

Hello! I'm Karolina.

​I grew up in Scandinavia near lakes and forests.

 

I was a sensitive, curious child who loved books, had a heart for animals and liked thinking very deeply about things - including my own thoughts and feelings!

It was my interest in the human mind and emotions that led me to first study psychology, and then to become a psychotherapist. In between the two, I also qualified as a teacher! I have a wealth of experience of working in inner city schools in London, with children and young people aged 4-19, and their parents and carers.

I now offer 1:1 therapy online for those who need some emotional support, using both talk-therapy, somatic and creative therapies for a truly holistic approach to emotional well-being. My specialism is in early relational (childhood) trauma.

I started welcoming clients into my private practice in 2020.

 

Before that, I worked with adult clients with various mental health issues at Mind UK, and with young people aged 16-25 at the Terrence Higgins Trust Youth Counselling project, London.

I'm still a book worm and I like to draw or paint on most days. I also I love outdoor swimming - but only during the summer months!
