I'm glad you came across my website!
My name is Daniel Bąk. As a psychotherapist specialising in the difficulties of the LGBT+ community, I know the challenges that may be faced by people representing gender and sexual diversity or entering into non-standard types of romantic and/or sexual relationships (e.g. polyamory).
What is psychotherapy?
Learning new things
My thinking about psychotherapy is very simple. Each of us does what one can do (= what one knows how to do). If you come to a psychotherapist for support, it means that by doing what you know how to do, you get into trouble. In that case, you need to learn something new: a new behaviour and/or a new emotional response in selected situations. This is what psychotherapy is for. During the sessions, we will focus on learning these new things.
Psychotherapy is a joint venture. We will need each other. I have the knowledge and skills to help you find new solutions. On your side, you need to be willing to take the risk of deepening your understanding of yourself: your own history, thinking patterns and ways of reacting with feelings to people and events. Then comes the time to try something new.
