Psychological consultations offer the support of a psychologist and psychotherapist who can support you in journey to: realise your strengths and weaknesses, work on your assertiveness, the willingness to free yourself from suffering and emotional disorders and strengthen your self-esteem.
Consultation is aimed at recognizing the client’s situation, providing immediate help or referring them to therapy or other forms of help. It can be conducted in the form of a single session, a series of meetings or as the first step to further therapy.
We provide help to people experiencing emotional problems and life difficulties, such as:

If you experience any of these problems, contact us. We treat each person individually and we always look for the best way to help.
The session lasts 50 minutes.
The length of therapy depends on the problem faced by the client, but it does not exceed 15 meetings, taking place at least once a week.
Couples therapy aims to help find barriers and obstacles to effective communication in a relationship. It also helps couples who are currently experiencing a crisis, mourning, or other life change that affects the quality of their relationship.
The aim of the Family Clinic is to support and help children, adolescents and families in a wide spectrum of difficulty and crisis situations, overcoming problems, improving the quality of functioning and deepening relationships in families.

Meetings take place with the written consent of the parents / guardians or an adult student. The session lasts 50 minutes.
We have created regulations defining the terms and conditions, which aim to keep the high standards and quality of your sessions with our volunteers.
If you wish to book an appointment, contact our volunteers at: Konsultacje@polishpsychologists.org
The waiting time for a consultation varies from several days to several weeks. During the first consultation, the consultant will conduct an interview to learn about your needs and expectations. You will be obliged to complete questionnaires and diagnostic tests. This will help the consultants to create a further care plan and allow them to refer you to the appropriate therapist.
Psychological support is tailored to the individual needs of the client. The duration of one meeting is approximately 50 minutes.
All information provided during the assessment and in the survey is treated as confidential within the scope of the organization. In order to ensure the highest standard of psychological assistance, each PPA consultant attends supervision, where he discusses his psychological practice with the supervisor and other psychologists, respecting the client’s anonymity.
This confidentiality may, however, be broken in the event of a risk to self or others.
The client has the right to cancel two sessions 7 days in advance. These sessions are not deducted from the pool of sessions contracted and will not be charged. You can make changes by phone or email. If you cancel your visit on a different date, you might be asked to pay 100% of the costs of the cancelled visit.
If you cancel the meeting twice, all reservations made by you will be suspended. Failure to attend 2 consecutive sessions without an attempt to contact the client is interpreted as a lack of readiness to continue therapy/consultations and is tantamount to termination of the contract.
If for any reason you foresee that you will not be able to arrive on time for a meeting, please notify him or her by email or telephone. When we do not receive information from you – our specialist is obliged to wait for you for 15 minutes.
Persons on the waiting list are informed by email about available appointments.

- <15 thousand pounds per year / difficult financial situation – the amount determined individually, preferentially minimum £ 10
- <20,000 pounds per year – £ 20
- <30,000 pounds per year – £ 30
- <40 thousand pounds per year – £ 40

The Women’s Academy project also covers the issues of gynaecological, sexual and psychological health of women in an exhaustive and comprehensive manner.
All topics covered by the Women’s Academy program are set in British reality and culture. Therefore the participants of the program receive adequate and up-to-date information on the place and possible costs of treatment/assistance in Great Britain.
Our statutory assumption is to support Poles living in the UK in the field of broadly understood mental health. Due to its invaluable role in everyday life, through the Women’s Academy Project, we want to provide you, our recipients, with tools that will help you gain skills and independence in preventing negative impact, recognizing and influencing your well-being.

Coaching aims to unlock a person’s potential in order to maximize their performance and increase their effectiveness.
Coaching focuses on future opportunities, not past mistakes. It works faster and more effectively than traditional adult education methods. It strengthens the client and his environment, increases the sense of self-agency, self-confidence, and motivates to express individuality and, as a result, to a more happy and authentic life.
