1. Professional background
I have over 18 years' experience of working as a Clinical Psychologist. I have worked in a variety of settings with a range of client groups including Adult Mental Health, Learning Disability, Physical Disability, Child & Adolescent Mental Health and Adults with Psycho-Medical Problems. Within these settings, I have conducted both assessment and therapy with adults referred for a wide range of physical, emotional and behavioural difficulties. I have undertaken assessments for Court Reports in Personal Injury and Family Proceedings. My work is based on evidence based practice and the most recent research. I value integrity and respect for persons and evidence and seek to establish the highest ethical standards in my work.
I am one of the first Polish Clinical Psychologists recognised by the Division of Clinical Psychology of the British Psychological Society in the UK. I am recently recognised by HPC as a Practicing Psychologist. I am still a member of Polish Psychological Society.
In the context of my experience I can offer my services in the area of Psychological Evaluation of Polish and English people for Courts and offer Trauma-related Psychotherapy.
2. Psychological Assessments.
I am able to offer Psychological Assessment for judicial proceedings in Family Law in relation to Marriage, Dissolution and Custody. I also specialise in Personal Injury Litigation and in assessing Competency to Stand Trial, to Testify, and to Make Decision.
3. Psychological Assessment of Polish people.
Interviewing individuals through an interpreter is always a disadvantage and inevitably hinders effective communication, especially in the area of child sexual abuse.I offer culturally competent and appropriate psychological assessments to the rapidly increasing Polish immigrant population, i.e. those coming up before the Courts in Private or Public Law Cases.
I have many years of experience in providing therapy services for English and Polish populations in relation to all aspects of psychological damage. I offer evidence-based treatments focusing on short-term approaches, primarily utilising Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR).
