About me and my therapy practice
Welcome to my page,
My name is Anita, I am an integrative counsellor. I understand the complexities and pressures of daily life which comes with different feelings and emotions, that can be difficult to process or make sense of. As a counsellor, I believe the foundation of effective safe therapy includes trust, non-judgement, and empathic environment to facilitate YOUR autonomy, so you can explore and gain understanding.
I have extensively travelled; which has give me the openness to appreciate and respect people are individual. I am always humbled by the therapeutic experience. I have counselled in various settings and worked with many clients from different walks of life. I am a strong advocate for thinking outside the box when it comes to counselling. One- fit does not fit all.
I believe through empathy and unconditional positive regard; clients can give themselves permission to explore their emotions and feelings in a non-judgmental space. through the process of opening painful thoughts and feeling, are the steps forward to understanding emotions more clearer. As a integrative counsellor, I may use psychoanalytical approaches to help clients to identify associations between present behaviours & past traumas, emotions and feelings. And I use CBT, to create solutions and strategies, which best suits the client, to aid their process. I facilitate the therapeutic relationship through a Person-Centred approach.
I work from a client led stance and provide a safe space for clients to understand and process their emotions. I am a strong advocate for thinking outside the box when it comes to counselling. I can adapt my practice to create a unique tailor made therapy to fit the clients' individual needs.
I an adaptive to work long-term and short term (six-twelve) psychoeducational therapy.
