About me and my therapy practice
“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf” (Jon Kabat-Zinn)
Facing important changes in your life, experiencing loss, having relationships difficulties? Feeling sad, anxious, stressed, stuck or depressed?
I am here to be alongside you and will endeavour to help you help yourself.
My name is Irina and I am an experienced and qualified therapist. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, compassionate yet stimulating space where you can voice your life experiences and where we will work together to understand them and find a way forward.
I work with individuals, couples, children & adolescents, and on parenting and parent-child relationship issues.
My training in Integrative Relational Psychotherapeutic Counselling means that I draw on a range of different psychotherapeutic methods and pay close attention to the relationship between us. I also focus on body-mind connection and use creative interventions, expressive arts, mindfulness, guided meditation and breathing techniques when appropriate and desired by client.
Everyone is unique, and I will work with you according to your individual needs.
I have experience of working with various issues, e.g. Anxiety, Depression, Relationship Issues, Bereavement, Abuse, Trauma & PTSD, Parenting, Family Issues, Anger Management, Work related issues, Addictions, Self-Harm, Panic and Phobias.
I believe in choice and human potential for growth, change and accessing a “better” you. Together, we will try to find the meaning and direction in your life and discover self-awareness, wisdom, peace and resilience you already have within you.
