Agata holds a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology and is a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and a Canadian Certified Counsellor with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. She has been immersed in the field of depth psychology and self discovery for the past 12 years.
Agata works in a person-centered, compassionate, safe, and empowering way. She offers clients a space and presence that is warm, validating, respectful, and supportive of healing. She views human nature as holistic - integrating the body, mind, and spirit. This is reflected in her approach to counselling, which is grounded in Gestalt Therapy, Body Psychotherapy, Mindfulless, Family Constellations, work with dreams, hypnosis, and expressive therapies. She has a particular interest in childhood wounds and how they form into relational and physical patterns, concealing the true self.
Agata’s intention as a therapist is to support clients to explore and move beyond difficult or limiting experiences and situations, and provide an opportunity for people to attune to, and reconnect with their most authentic self. She sees the therapeutic process as an inner journey of self-knowledge, awareness, acceptance and rediscovery, which facilitates choice, change, healing, and an opportunity to live more authentically and enjoyably in the present.

"Agata helped me work through deeply hidden painful experiences from childhood that I had been carrying with me, making personal relationships very difficult. I suffered from heartbreak, abandonment, betrayal, shame and anger. A lot of my childhood was not safe. Agata has the ability to make therapy safe, and is a great guide that allows me to feel free to deeply feel whatever comes up emotionally. She is non-judgmental and so patient, calm and caring. I would recommend her therapy sessions to anyone."
"Agata has been guiding me through the grief work related to the loss of my pregnancy and my divorce. Agata is very compassionate and provides a safe space for healing and change to unfold. She has the unique ability of meeting me where I’m at and uses a variety of different techniques and tools to guide me through the obstacles at hand. Her approach is holistic and she focuses on communication expressing emotions and how they feel in the body."
“I am glad I found Agata. What she is doing in the therapy room is something much more artful than listening to me. She is gently and skillfully getting me to listen to myself. She tirelessly advocates for the still, small voice that is speaking through bodily complaints and processes.”
"Agata, I just wanted to say thank you for everything this past year. I truly feel the work I've done with you this year has helped me heal on such a deep level. You are an incredible healer and woman. Thanks for being a model of authenticity. May the next year bring you lots of blessings :)"
"Agata is a very caring and intuitive counsellor who is able to nurture her clients in a compassionate, safe and non-judgmental way that allows for true healing to occur. She not only addresses the mind, but also the emotions that are stuck in the body, which is unique compared to other counsellors I have seen in the past. Every time I have a session with her, I have more insight into my behaviour and the life that I have created, and an emotional shift occurs as well, which leaves me feeling grounded and hopeful to make further changes in my life. It is an empowering therapy process and I am so grateful to have her support in my life."
"Agata, thank you very much for the private session! My anger is gone :) "
