About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I'm Diana and I have worked in wellbeing and mental health since 1998. The clients and couples I work with come from all walks of life and cultures. I focus on building strengths and resilience via short term brief therapy. I work to the goals that you want via talking about what's good in the here and now and where you want to go in the future. I believe what you focus on, you grow, so that's why I practice a positive approach!
As well as working with individuals, couples and families in the U.K on a huge range of issues and difficulties, I offer online sessions worldwide. I hold an MSc in Mental Health and have undertaken extensive additional training, so you can be confident that you are in safe, qualified hands.
With a background as a Senior Practitioner in an NHS community mental health team, I have an excellent grasp of mental health, wellbeing, the different diagnoses, and I have done additional training on working with trauma, depression, anxiety and stress.
I recently worked as a Staff Counsellor for the United Nations in Afghanistan, so I understand first-hand the challenges of working in conflict zones and mission life; this can be helpful for clients who are/who are previously in the military and humanitarians.
My first session
A typical first session looks at what you want to get out of treatment and a discussion on how the future will be different, what you've got going for you, your strengths and ways of coping well. We will talk about building on these and getting you to the life you want, as quickly as possible. The name of this ethos is Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I trained with BRIEF (www.brief.org.uk), Europe's most renowned centre for SFBT.
