Kuba Grzegrzolka

CBT & MOL Psychotherapist

Kuba Grzegrzolka (also known as Jakub Grzegrzolka) is a psychotherapist and researcher passionate about improving therapy effectiveness. Kuba provides treatment for mental health problems such as depression, anxiety, stress, panic attacks, PTSD, OCD, and many others. He is the founder of the Restore Control Therapy Service (https://restorecontrol.co.uk) which he set up to increase access to professional therapy for people in Leeds and surrounding areas (as well as online).

From the beginning of his career as a therapist he was not afraid to question the outdated and problematic aspects of the mental health world. Kuba has consistently worked towards his vision of how mental health support should look like. He has set up the Restore Control Therapy Service in response to the observed rigid nature of traditional mental health services; including the “medicalisation” of mental health problems, overreliance on “quick fix” strategies, and the problematic nature of simplifying and boxing up mental health problems.

Kuba believes in an evidence-based and modern approach to therapy. His understanding of mental health problems is based on the Perceptual Control Theory, while his clinical approach is mainly shaped by a transdiagnostic cognitive therapy known as Method of Levels, but also by some aspects of the Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy. Instead of the unnecessary paperwork, labels or rigid instructions, he likes to help his clients focus on their problems from the first session. He strives to always put the client in the centre of all aspects of therapy.
