About me and my therapy practice
My name is Violeta and I have been working as a Humanistic Intergrative Counsellor and Psychosexual therapist for the past 23 years. I work for the NHS and privately.
I am working short, medium, and long term. My specialisms are: work with sexual issues (vaginismus, low libido, problems with orgasm, erectile difficulty, premature ejaculation), couple therapy, substance misuse as well as work with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, trauma, and work-related issues. My therapeutic style is integrative which means that I use my Humanistic Integrative training as a basis to incorporate Psychodynamic approach, Medical assessment, and Cognitive Behavioural Techniques. I also use EMDR, specially when working with trauma. Lately, I became more interested in working with body and I see the body as equally important element of therapeutic process as emotions and thoughts and social environment.
The therapeutic work is very rewarding as it can help you to live and think differently and more fulfilling. The work will sometimes also be challenging but that is part of the process. All our achievements like writing an essay, speaking another language, cleaning the house, painting a picture, or completing any project require dedication, commitment, willingness to learn, openness, curiosity, and sometimes simply- “just do it” attitude. This applies to therapy too and I am here to support you with kindness, compassion and warmth but also offer another point of you and challenge some of your ideas.
Practice descriptionIn my practice, I hope to provide a safe and secure place for your worries, anxieties, difficulties but also successes, insights, transformations, and curiosity. I am looking forward to working with you and I see therapeutic space somewhere where you can gain knowledge to tackle all kinds of human difficulties.
My first session
Once you contact me, we will organise the initial session, which is 50 minutes long. I see people face to face and online. After the session I suggest a few days for you to make decision if you are willing to commit to therapy. The fee is the same for initial and subsequent sessions.
