About me

My name is Bogumila .I work with individual, couples, families (I use imago, non confrontation therapy,Crucible and differentiation techniques .
I use therapeutic skills and techniques rooted in modern psychotherapy ,gestalt,person centred, psychodynamic,mindfulness and traditional Eastern Zen philosophy and mindfulness. I became recently authorised Zen Master via traditional line.I do practice meditation for over 4 decades .Some of the techniques help to improve your grounding skills, motivation, energy level, concentration, quality of sleep and mood, and some are to prevent or deal with depression and anxiety.

Processing thoughts, emotions and past events is a way to gain clarity in the moment and make the best decisions. I will help you with this process. My listening skills and intuitive understanding of the roots of problems help my clients to feel that they are understood.

I have also worked and still work in different settings, including teaching, leading long meditation retreats, working with young and elderly clients, and people suffering from bereavement, addiction and abuse.

I think we all need happiness, to be understood. We want great intimacy. We want to be fulfilled in our relationships, work and family life. We need good techniques and people with the skills to support us. We need a support network.

We need to invest in ourselves.

During a therapy session, you can really get to the roots of problems. I will help you to process feelings and thoughts. This can be scary and is sometimes unbearable to do alone.

I will give you the tools to deal with difficult feelings, so that you will be well equipped for what you are facing in life I will help you to build your network of support.

I am available for short therapy support for individuals and couples, children, and parents, and for longer-term therapy.

I will help you get in touch with your internal power/intuition so you will know how to use all your inner resources. I can help you to deal with overthinking.

I have a lot of experience as a Zen mindfulness teacher to enhance and tap into your different types of energy. I use modern therapy and mindfulness techniques, as well as emotional freedom techniques.

I integrate the following skills and techniques when working with individuals and couples: mindfulness, gestalt, cognitive behavioural therapy, creative therapy, focusing on feelings, and solution-focused writing therapy.

The couples therapy I offer is based on modern couples therapy modalities: developmental, attachment-based, imago.

I help you to see what is holding you back

I believe that therapy should bring positive changes to our life from the very first session.
I have worked with difference and diversity in various ways. I recognise the impact of different forms of oppression on personal development, and on the chances that are available to people.

I am an active listener, very intuitive, non-judgemental, empathetic, and mindful. I think I am effective with all my clients, but specifically for those who want to improve work and other relationships. I am not only a therapist, I am also an authorised mindfulness and Zen teacher with over 35 years of experience.

How many sessions will I need?
I am happy to work short or longer term with people. Short-term work often involves specific issues and goals. This is also true for longer-term work but can make way for a more free-flow exploration of issues as they arise.

During therapy sessions, we focus on the moment and come to recognise the roots of patterns and problems.

In the couple therapy I use Imago, circulating questioning, emotional focus therapy, not coronational communication, visualisation, empowerment skills, etc

I am now working across two locations. I offer my therapeutic counselling from: Stroud Green Rd N4 3PX and Crouch Hill Rd N4 4BY this is for individual, couples, and family therapy.

I am fluent in Polish English and understand some simple Russian and Slovak languages
