My name is Lena, I am a qualified person-centred Counsellor/Psychotherapist, professional supervisor, mindfulness/meditation teacher and practitioner.
I was born in a country that literally disappeared from the map when I was twenty-one and was training to become a secondary school teacher. This was a real-life crisis, forcing me to learn to live and survive through extreme challenges. I have since moved to two countries to live and work, both with very different language and cultural challenges.
These experiences helped me to adapt to change, to be resilient in adversity and to be ‘curious about culture’. I have met some amazing people who also supported me on this journey and who continue to influence who I am now - an experienced Counsellor, a wife, a proud mother of a young adult daughter, a ‘spiritual seeker’ and trying to practice mindful awareness in all I do.
I have seen the importance of trying to transform every obstacle in life’s journey into an opportunity to become the more the real and content ME. You see, I just know that without finding our true self, we simply cannot find real joy in life. I have healed my traumas of loss and other life crises by ‘accepting’, being honest with myself and courageous in making some difficult decisions.
I would be delighted to share all I have learned through my journey and professional training to support you in your challenges, perhaps to re-discover yourself & maybe find YOUR fulfilment in your life and your relationships with people and the world.
What WeeChange offers you is REAL.
You will be given unconditional acceptance of who you are.
You will not be alone with your feelings. I will put myself in your shoes.
You will be cherished for your qualities as my belief in you is given from the start.
You will be given a safe space to express yourself in your own time without judgement.

I have known Gosia over a number of years and been involved in her training as a coach (ILM Level 5 in Coaching and Mentoring).
I would not hesitate to recommend her as an excellent coach.
She has exceptional interpersonal qualities and high level of coaching skills.
What people say
My coaching sessions with Gosia have been really rewarding. She is a phenomenal listener and helped me to see for myself what I had to do to improve my performance. Gosia has that natural ability to make you recognise your own potential and help to guide you towards it.
She is such a people person and since the day I met her, she has always been keen to help others succeed. A great coach and a lovely person.
Gosia has such a warm and friendly personality it was very easy to open up to her.
At the start of our session we established what I hoped to achieve followed by a list of actions at the end. She made me feel that my goals were absolutely achievable by asking a series of questions making me consider how best to do this, giving me incredible confidence.
I couldn't recommend a lovelier person to speak to.
