About me and my therapy practice

My name is Diego Avila and I am a Counselling Psychotherapist. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and fully uphold their Ethical Framework.

I work using a Relational Integrative Model, which puts the emphasis on the way that we, as humans, relate to each other, both inside and outside of the therapy room. I draw from elements of Psychodynamic as well as Client Centred theory models in order to facilitate the therapeutic work. In addition, I may also use elements from other approaches such as Attachment Theory, Transactional Analysis and Jungian symbolism and dream exploration.

I am also a Clinical Supervisor as well as a Lecturer in Counselling, currently working in Adult Further Education.

My aim is to provide you with a safe and contained space for you to talk, share and explore your feelings, in your own time and at your own pace. Within our therapeutic relationship I will aim to facilitate a space for self-growth and exploring your own personality, how you relate to others and to yourself.

​The first session will be an assessment to explore what you feel you need help with and how we can work together. I will ask you to complete a brief questionnaire beforehand, which will give us a clearer picture of your presenting issues.

Another aspect of my business sees me as a qualified Yoga Teacher, a discipline I have been practising for over 20 years and teaching since 2012, and I may bring elements of body movement, breath awareness as well as mindfulness into our sessions, if we both feel they may be of benefit to you.

I am also able to carry out session both in the English and Spanish languages.

About me and my therapy practice

As a qualified Supervisor my aim is to provide you with a space that will work on a Reciprocal Mentorship basis in order to better support your client work.

Both as a Counselling Psychotherapist and Supervisor I work using a Relational Integrative model which works with the Five Aspects of the Therapeutic Relationship (sometimes known as the "Clarkson Model"), and this is the therapeutic model that I use to underpin the supervision work that we will do.

In addition, I will work using the Psychoanalytic, Cognitive Behavioural and Solution-focused models of supervision in order to further facilitate your progress around specific areas of client work.

I am able to work with trainee counsellors, as this is a particular area of expertise due to my lecturing work.
