About me and my therapy practice
Hi, I'm Larissa and I am a qualified counsellor working with adults who find themselves needing support with something they may be going through or with how they are feeling. Whether you are going through a bereavement, a loss or an important life transition, whether you are feeling anxious or low, I can help by talking things through with you and exploring how your situation can be made more easy and manageable.
My background is integrative, which simply means that I draw from different ideas and techniques to support my work in a way that would be tailored to your needs. I also work relationally, meaning that I will always pay special attention to our relationship and try to make sure you feel understood and supported. Above everything, I provide a space where you can discuss what is troubling you in confidence and without judgement.
Alongside my private practice, I am a volunteer counsellor for a local bereavement agency and I work in a NHS surgery in Surrey.
I am a registered practitioner for Cigna.
My face to face sessions are held at The Practice in East Molesey. Please note that my therapy room is located on the first floor and that there is no lift in the building. Free parking is available nearby, please enquire. I participate in The Practice low cost therapy service, Community Counselling Service (CCS).
I also offer Walk & Talk therapy in the green spaces of/around Kingston-upon-Thames. Walk and Talk can be a great way to have your counselling session if you like the outdoors or want to reconnect with nature. It could also suit you if you like processing your thoughts and feelings while walking - or simply if you are looking for "another" way to do therapy.
I offer sessions online (Zoom) and on the phone.
My first session
Our first session together will provide us wit the opportunity to see whether we feel suited to work together. I know that choosing the right therapist is not easy - you may not even know what to look out for or you may want to meet with several therapists before you make your choice. I will answer any questions you may have about my work and explain the counselling process in a way that will support you to make a choice.
