Counselling and Psychotherapy
Counselling offers you a safe and confidential space where you can explore your struggles, mental health issues and inner conflicts. These can range from struggling with anxiety (including panic attacks) and/or depression (including low mood, feeling sad, suicidal thinking) to dealing with stress (in your professional and personal life), burnout, relationship and family problems, low self-esteem and low self-confidence.
I value each person's autonomy and uniqueness. Whatever you choose to bring into our working relationship, I will respect and support you on the journey to a more content and peaceful state of mind.
As a counsellor, I am not there to give you advice or tell you what to do. My approach is non-directive which means that I will stand by your side, listen carefully in a non-judgemental way to your worries, thoughts and feelings. My role is to help you interpret and understand your inner world and come to your own conclusions. As our counselling relationship grows on the foundation of mutual trust, I may sometimes gently challenge your behavioural and thinking patterns if I notice contradictory ideas that hold you back or block your development. Nevertheless, we will examine these together and you have my genuine support. I encourage self-acceptance, compassion to self and identifying your own resources to build self-esteem, resilience and confidence.
I work with clients from diverse backgrounds and on a multitude of mental health issues and personal struggles. I am trained in an integrative way, applying theory and practice from the Client-Centred Model (as developed by Carl Rogers) and integrating other humanistic therapies (Existential, Gestalt, Psychosynthesis) and Psychodynamic therapy. Furthermore, I have comprehensive knowledge and experience with Bereavement, Loss and Grief through the work I have been doing with the UK largest bereavement charity - Cruse Bereavement Support.
I offer counselling in three languages: English, Romanian and Spanish.
