About me and my therapy practice

My name is Christina. As your counsellor I will provide you with a confidential non-judgmental space in which you can feel safe to tell your story, express your real feelings and fears and feel heard. I will support you to explore feelings that you are finding painful and distressing.

 I work as an Integrative Counsellor with adults and children.

This means that I work using skills from different counselling approaches (psychodynamic, CBT, solution focussed) to best help you with whatever difficulties you bring to counselling. I believe that everyone is different and uses counselling in their own unique way depending on personality, history and the issues you want to address and, therefore, I am flexible and adjust to your needs. At times I may also suggest creative methods to help you explore your feelings and underlying themes as this can sometimes bring out things which words can not always capture. I may also, with your consent, use meditation or guided imagery to help you.

I know from my own experience that life can be difficult at times, maybe because of our experiences as a child and/or what life throws at us as adults. And often we find that there is a link between the two, themes that repeat in our lives and that continue to cause us pain, anxiety and unhappiness. Or we might have suffered the loss of a loved one that is hard to cope with, separation/divorce, loss of income, confusion over our identity (sexual, nationality, cultural), loss of home country regardless of whether this was through choice or fleeing persecution, bullying in the workplace etc.

For counselling to be successful it is important that we we build a relationship based on trust and openness so you can bring any issue that is troubling you. I will offer you open-minded and non-judgmental listening and will be honest and transparent in the way I work with you.

The first session is a chance for us to meet and see if we want to work together and if we can build a therapeutic relationship. That relationship will be the core of our work together.  I will need to gather some background information to understand you better and define therapeutic goals.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a clinical supervisor in training and am currently completing a Diploma in Creative Supervision with the London Centre for Psychodrama.  

I am a BACP registered integrative counsellor, working both with children and adults. I have worked for the charity Place2Be for many years, offering supervision to counsellors, both experienced and trainee, working with children in schools. I now run a private practice as a therapist and supervisor.

As a Supervisor I offer an empathic, supportive approach using creative and theoretical approaches to explore and deepen the clinical work with clients. I can give you ideas, insight and constructive feed-back on the client work being discussed.

I am flexible  in my supervision approach, while remaining accepting of different theoretical models and each supervisee’s unique and individual style of delivering therapy.  My intention would be that the supervisee leaves a supervision session feeling a little clearer and better about their work, and goes on to make sense of their sessions and to achieve therapeutic progress with their client.

I have extensive experience in safeguarding, multi-agency liaison and working with parents.

I AM CURRENTLY OFFERING SUPERVISION SESSIONS EITHER FACE-TO-FACE OR ONLINE, VIA ZOOM.

Practice description

I can offer supervision via zoom or in my home.

My first session

Our first session will include some information about how and where you are working, your experience and your past experience of supervision. I will then let you know anything more you'd like to know about me and my experience. After this the session and all future sessions are for you to use as you choose. 

Clients I work with

Adults, Children
