Get to Know Me

I am passionate about mental health

I hold a postgraduate, Level 7 diploma in advanced psychotherapy which I completed at the Manchester Institute for Psychotherapy. 4 years of training in Transactional Analysis from an Integrative perspective. I set up my clinical practice in 2018 and delivered over 2000 hours of therapy since.

My career path is very diverse. I am a qualified teacher and have a PhD in science. My new career in psychotherapy began with my own personal therapy 8 years ago. This experience has changed my life profoundly and led me to train as a therapist so I can help others to make their own changes and transformations. I am very passionate about mental health. I believe in the effectiveness of talking therapies as a route to gain better control of our lives, find our true selves and achieve our desired goals.

I am registered and subscribe to a code of ethics and good practice laid down by the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). I am fully insured and supported by regular clinical supervision.

Although I currently cannot offer you sessions in any other language than English, I speak Lithuanian and have a basic knowledge of Spanish and Russian. I have found it useful at times when clients cannot find the right words to express themselves in English.
