Living well means to be able to relate in an authentic and fulfilling way. To relate to yourself, the people you love, and the world around you.
It sounds simple enough but sometimes there are blocks in the way. Things like past difficult experiences, old ways of being that are no longer helpful, or just unspecified ‘something’ that stops you from being the person you would really like to be.
This is where psychotherapy can help and I’d be happy to start this rewarding journey with you. Feel free to email me to arrange first session or to ask a question.
Psychotherapy and Counselling with Malgorzata Milewicz UKCP (Accred)
Emotional health is about ability to form fulfilling relationships with others, experiencing a full range of emotions, knowing, respecting and trusting yourself and being flexible in our responses to whatever life brings. If this is where you want to get I’m here to help you on your way.
I work with clients in a relational and integrative way. I use our relationship as the basis for the therapeutic work and I’m interested in how you relate to others in your life. The relationship I’m particularly interested in is the one you have with yourself. The first step to improving your ability to connect to others and yourself is to understand what is happening right now in your life.
As an integrative psychotherapist I blend a number of established psychotherapeutic theories into a framework that is aligned with my values – meaning I walk my talk. My practice is informed by psychodynamic theories, attachment, neuroscience, trauma theories and existential values.
What all that theory means in practice is that I am genuinely interested in who you are, what you think and what you feel. I’m curious about how you got where you are and ready to help you to get where you want to be. If you are ready to start that process, email me to arrange your first session.
