My name is Przemek Jakub Potorski. I am a psychotherapeutic therapist and a sexual health counsellor. My frame of work is relational, which means I perceive psychotherapy as an opportunity to create a trusted bond with you, essential to enhance your awareness of the both; destructive relational patterns and mechanisms from your life and to offer empathy and acceptance which is vital to support you in making a satisfactory change.
I believe that counselling is a co-created relationship where a client as well as a practitioner are involved in process, this same way as crew of a sail, who set off the cruise to find your coveted land. As counselling progresses, I, together with you, encounter calm water, undulating seas and stormy weather. Mutual trust is essential in every condition from silence to a gale. Furthermore, I see my work as openness to not-knowing and willingness to explore.
“The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.”
I work with an issues which include: anxiety, depression, loneliness, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, sexual stress, trauma, abuse, shame, bereavement, loss and grief, low self-esteem, anger management and overworking amongst many others.
It is worthwhile to attending psychotherapeutic counselling and psychotherapy when you feel that life’s difficulties are overwhelming and that you are unable to cope with them. This is especially so, when your own ways and solutions of dealing with life’s problems and crises become ineffective and even in themselves can become the source of issues.
