WPF Therapy – Meet the Staff

WPF Therapy – Meet the Staff

Krysia Zalewska has recently joined us as a Training Manager. This role includes overseeing, and being actively involved in, conducting the selection process of potential trainees for the Clinical Qualification in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, from the start to the finish of the process. Krysia is finding the group interviews, in which applicants are given a flavour of the clinical aspect of the training and assessed for their potential relating to this, particularly rewarding.

Before taking up this role at WPF Therapy Krysia enjoyed a range of careers which included being a paramedic, both in the NHS and for a private company providing medical service to the film and television industry. She also managed national clinical audits of the care of people with severe and enduring mental illness.

When talking about what led her to train as a psychotherapist Krysia told us that her interest in this area is one that she has always held. “I was particularly interested in the ideas around human development and how emotional development is not static but rather a continuous process which can be enormously helped by psychotherapy.

Having successfully completed her training to qualify as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist at WPF Therapy, Krysia was very pleased to return to and begin guiding people through the training that she had valued so much. “I enjoy working in a training environment and it is stimulating to work with colleagues who have a wealth of experience in the therapy field. I find it exciting to have the opportunity to learn from and share ideas with the established therapists on staff”.
