Basia Benda


I am a psychotherapeutic counsellor with a Diploma from Metanoia Institute, one of the leading centres for psychotherapy training in the UK. I previously trained in Existential therapy, and have a Certificate in Psychotherapy, Counselling and Coaching from New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling in London.

I have experience helping people manage issues such as depression, anxiety, abuse, relationship issues, bereavement and cancer which I gained with Cruse in Oxford, Centre 70 in West Norwood and Dimbleby Cancer Centre at Guy’s hospital in London.

Before embarking on the psychotherapy training, I worked for many years in the humanitarian aid world. Originally from Poland, I have lived in North and South America, in Asia and I finally settled in the UK in 2007.

I offer therapy in English, Polish and French.
