Ewa Pawluk is a qualified counselling psychologist and a psychodynamic psychotherapist in training. She has been working with people with a broad spectrum of mental health issues ranging from mood and anxiety disorders to personality disorders and severe mental illness. She gained her experience over years of working in both in-patient settings as well as private outpatient practice.
Common issues that Ewa works with include: depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, life transitions, loss and grief, abuse and trauma, and communication and intimacy issues. She specialises in psychodynamic psychotherapy which is successful in helping individuals who struggle with relational difficulties, personality disorders, and psychosexual problems. Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a pathway to understanding, insight and change. In her work Ewa focuses on helping her patients to embody their authentic selves, learn how to effectively communicate their feelings, desires, needs, and boundaries, deepen their capacity for intimacy, and honour their goals and dreams. She strives to develop this understanding collaboratively in an atmosphere of openness, safety, honesty and curiosity.
Her background is in applied psychology and the American approach in psychodynamic psychotherapy. Her style is interactive with an emphasis on using insight to achieve emotional and relational change. She believes it is important to engage not only the patient’s deeper feelings and experiences but also current, everyday stresses and dilemmas.
Ewa works in private practice at The Awareness Centre in Clapham. She offers therapy in English and Polish.
