About me and my therapy practice
My name is Dafiny Alves I am an integrative counsellor and certified anxiety and trauma practitioner, I have been working for years with young people , children and their parents.
I work with children and young people from 11 years old and adults.
My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths; I provide a safe non-judgemental space virtual or face to face where I will listen to you and we may use if you would like to a range of technics such as: games, role play, drawing, crafts, mindfulness, blobs pictures, solution focus exercises, etc
Due to COVID-19 restrictions I am working exclusively online and over the phone.
My first session
Before having a first session I will offer you a 20 minutes phone call an initial free telephone assessment appointment, I would work with you to understand your current situation and concerns. If you and I decide together that the arrangement of some online counselling sessions is the best way forward, we would proceed on the same basis as I do at the service when working face to face: We would arrange further online appointments, think with you about their regularity, timing and payment and be clear about what I can offer.
I would be likely to discuss with you a range of very useful online support and self-help materials and programs which you might access to complement the work I do with you. As part of this assessment process, we would also consider together whether mine online service would best suit your needs at this time; Some of the most important work that could be done online with me, might involve thinking about your present needs and working out how best to access the most appropriate support. This may take one online session or a few.
