I experienced life adversity. Through education, life-long learning, I was able to change my life positively. Everything I have investigated scientifically, written about and transmit, is rooted in professional and personal experience.

 

Depuis que j’ai commencé à travailler avec Irena j’ai change les mauvaises habitudes que j’avais depuis des années alors que je pensais qu’elles faisaient parties de moi. Irena m’a libéré de certaines chaines que je pensais impossible à enlever et cela à décuplé la volonté que j’avais d’évoluer. Irena est le tuteur qui m’aide à grandir et à devenir moi même.(Since I started working with Irena I changed many life-long habits, I thought were part of my character, but Irena helped me see no longer served me. She helped me free myself from chains I thought I would never break, and helped me evolve. Irena is the teacher who helps me grow and be who I am meant to be).

I loved working with Irena. She created a safe space for me and I felt seen, heard and validated. Irena is very compassionate, loving, intelligent and spiritual and I felt totally comfortable and supported by her which is exactly what I needed. She is very in touch with her intuition and was able to guide me in the inner bonding process so I was able to get in touch with my deep inner truth. Irena is a beautiful person and I highly recommend working with her.

Irena is the BEST facilitator for me to do Inner Bonding work.  There is something so sacred to me about you and the work you are doing with me and the way that you do it.  I have known and worked with many professional counselors and coaches and inspirational speakers, authors and teachers either in person or through their books, talks, Podcasts (I'm a self-help enthusiast!) and you are sincerely one of the most brilliant, beautiful women I have ever come across.  You have the most exquisite beautiful blend of kind, compassionate heart and high intelligence and spiritual wisdom.

My academic background includes two undergraduate university degrees, a  Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology, a Master in Psychology and a Master in Counselling Psychology as part of my Doctoral training from British universities, an internationally yoga and meditation certification and  acting certifications and diplomas from the US and the UK.

I am also a facilitator of the Inner Bonding modality after having trained with Dr Margaret Paul extensively over a long period of time (6 years). I continue my own weekly therapy and I am supervised weekly.

I work both clinically in the English National Health Service (NHS) and consult in non-clinical settings (corporate organisations) with a variety of private clients (from C-Suite Executives and CEOs in global corporate organisations in the London City Financial district to artists and athletes).

Having grown up in a multi-cultural and multi-faith environment and having travelled extensively, I speak and write various languages fluently. I also bring an appreciation of different cultural sensibilities and personal life experience of mental health challenges and recovery.

Your Alchemists’ mission is to guide others who are ready to embark on the ‘journey of the authentic self’ to lead meaningful, fulfilling, responsible and conscious lives, whilst continuing to innovate in psychology practice and research. Your Alchemists are also committed to diversity, inclusion, social justice, equality and sustainability. We believe that within each individual lies the potential for them to become their ‘own guru’ and work with you so that you do not hand-over your knowing and power to others, including whilst you work with me. For us to be able to work together the prerequisite is that you are ready to take responsibility and that you take action outside of our sessions together. It is a true 50/50 equitable relationship. If I do not think that I am the right facilitator for you, I will let you know in our first sessions together, usually within the first three sessions.
