Family and Systemic Psychotherapist & Couples Therapist
Couples Therapy £110
With many years working in the NHS, Marzena is a very experienced UKCP registered Family and Systemic Psychotherapist and a member of Association for Family Therapy and Systemic Practice and College for Family, Couple and Systemic Therapy.
She has over 20 years of experience working in a variety of roles across different health and social care sectors seeking best ways to support those facing adversities, challenges and significant life’s crises. Her professional path started by helping families to identify root causes of their problems, supporting them to overcome difficulties encountered.
Marzena developed her systemic practice working with couples and families facing relational difficulties, struggling with problems such as disconnection, unresolved and reoccurring conflicts, adversities, trauma, mental and physical ill-health and losses.
Marzena holds the belief that we are relational beings and the quality of our close relationships will determine our lives’ satisfaction.
She believes that a sense of connection, feeling loved and understood all play a vital role in building and sustaining good relationships; however, when families face significant problems such as trauma, health issues, injustice, loss or pressures of everyday life, previously known ways of connecting and communicating with each other often call for re-evaluation.
Marzena helps couples and families work through the challenges they face, whether those are placed within the family or in the wider context such as school, work or stresses of everyday life. Her work aims at strengthening connections, deepening understanding of one another and finding new ways of moving forward.
In her therapeutic work she integrates different family therapy approaches, drawing on other psychotherapeutic modalities if helpful.
She is currently working with children and young people within a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service, providing specialist clinical assessment and treatment for families of children and young people with Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, self-harming and trauma, amongst others.
Marzena also provides guidance to wider networks, such as schools, GPs or Social Services and she also trained in delivering and supervising Brief Psychosocial Intervention (BPI) for adolescents with low mood.
