About me and my therapy practice

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. My name is Veronica. I am an Integrative Counsellor, I offer counselling to adults from 18+ who are experiencing difficulties in their lives such as stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, bereavement, discrimination, cultural or identity issues.

My theoretical orientation is rooted in the person-centred approach. This supports my belief that we all have the ability to find the answers we seek when provided with the right therapeutic conditions in a caring, non-judgemental and safe space.

Over the years I have been fortunate to work and live within a diverse range of communities. The knowledge and experience gained from people coming from all walks of life has given me a deeper understanding of myself and others. I can draw on these insights and my studies to empower my clients to help themselves. I strive to offer a warm and empathetic practice.

I believe that we are all unique and counselling needs to be reflective of this. A collaborative and engaging process that is governed by what feels relative and most important to each individual is crucial. My flexible approach means we can cover deep exploratory work, which may take more time; or, we can focus on the here and now which may be more short term. Gaining an insight of how habitual thought patterns may influence behaviour, mood and physical symptoms can lead to better self-awareness and understanding. Alongside this comes empowerment, through embracing your vulnerabilities and accessing your inner resilience. My hope is that an authentic, meaningful, trusting and caring relationship will be developed with my clients which will set the foundation for fresh insights, changes and choices.
