Piotr draws on Gestalt therapy as his philosophy for living and personal growth. As therapist, he works in a gentle and invitational way supporting his clients’ authenticity through facilitating awareness of their present experience. He encourages the client’s unique ways of self-expression and creativity, increasing their capacity for intimate contact. Piotr is committed to providing a high standard of professional practice that respects the unique reality of his clients – whether individuals, couples or groups.
Piotr offers short term counselling when appropriate but tends to work longer term to facilitate deep and lasting change. In addition to working from his own private practice in Highgate, he also runs personal development and training groups in the UK and Poland.
He works primarily in English but sessions can also be held in Polish.
