About me and my therapy practice

Welcome. My name is Musonda. I was born in Zambia and relocated to the UK where I have lived for over thirty years. I am a qualified Relational/Integrative Therapist, experienced in delivering face to face and online counselling.

I work in a client centred way making this a space for you - that starts with you - and that’s where we will work from.

My approach is relational and integrative. This means that during our work, I will use interventions underpinned by psychodynamic and Humanistic theories and include mindfulness. As part of my work with clients, I am curious about early childhood experiences and significant life events; and how these have come to shape thoughts, beliefs, and behaviour. I believe in going beneath the surface to understand your experiences and give your story a voice and meaning. Therefore, I strive to provide a space that is confidential, non-judgemental, and safe for you to be seen, heard, and validated.

I have experience of working with a wide range of presenting issues including anxiety, abuse including sexual, suicidal ideation depression, anger, low self-esteem, self-harm, and clients living with HIV. Currently I work with young people in a college and have volunteered with Place2Be, supporting children in a primary school setting and Positive East, a HIV Charity.


Practice description

I trained in Theology and Counselling (BA with Hons – Middlesex University), and I have specific training in bereavement, grief, and loss training. I am currently studying towards a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Contemporary Psychosexual Therapy and as part of course requirement I work with clients in Psychosexual Therapy.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) - currently working towards accreditation; a Student Member with the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapy (COSRT); and an accredited Member with the National Counselling Society. 

Sessions are held weekly on an agreed date and time and last 50 minutes. Currently I am only offering online sessions on zoom or Teams.

During the first session, I will carry out an assessment – to get to know you and understand your story. Therefore, we will be talking through your history and background.
