Mirek Polanowski is a BACP and FDAP registered counsellor and a clinical supervisor. He works in private practice and provides counselling within the NHS and supervises within the voluntary sector. He is also a tutor at CPPD Counselling School.
Mirek’s specialises in working with severe trauma, refugees and asylum seekers, substance misuse, domestic abuse, mental health, homeless, ex-offenders and personality disorders.
Mirek’s aim is to create a safe and supportive space where clients’ experiences can be fully appreciated and where learning becomes possible. His supervision style is inclusive and collaborative and depends both on a clinical presentation and supervisee’s own approach.
Mirek’s therapeutic style is predominantly humanistic and attachment-based, however, as an integrative counsellor he brings together a number of other modalities as well (psychodynamic, transaction analysis, person centred, gestalt, CBT and transpersonal) creating his own unique style.
Mirek provides weekly group supervision for The Awareness Centre’s NHS and Low Cost Counselling Services and supervises in private practice.
