My work has always been therapy focused. I completed PgCert Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at Bradford University. I also studied Person- Centred Therapy at Manchester College and Integrative Counselling at Manchester University. Since then I have been attending variety of courses and training to enhance my skills. I have recently completed a specialist training in working with eating disorders and disturbed eating, including overeating, delivered by National Institute for Eating Disorders. I am also now listed as IARTT Practitioner to deliver The Rewind Therapy for trauma treatment. I am currently in my final year of training with Krakow Society for Psychotherapeutic Hypnosis and Hypnosis Research and learning Werner J. Meindhold's Hypnointegrative Psychotherapy of Debt method. The course is internationally recognised by IGTH (Internationalen Gesellschaft für Integrative Tiefenpsychologische Therapie in Hypnose und Hypnoseforschung).
Over the years I worked with NHS, occupational health and community organisations providing both short term, solution focused therapy, and an open ended support, depending of client’s needs.
I offer therapy that suits my clients both in the approach I take and in the length of the therapy.
With over 3500 psychotherapy work hours, I have a significant experience working with people struggling with depression and anxiety, addictions, panic attacks, obsessive tendencies, psychosis, relationship issues, trauma, including sexual assaults and working with families of perpetrators, identity and cultural transition issues, eating disorders, but I also support clients who wish to develop inter and intra personal skills and widen their strengths.
I am an accredited member of British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) (under the name of Anna Dopierala). My work is closely supervised in line with BACP guidance and I follow the organisation's Ethical Framework.
