About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified integrative counsellor. I am trained to blend different therapeutic approaches such as person-centred, psychodynamic, cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), existential and solution-focused therapy. My pluralistic approach is designed according to my client’s personal needs. I have completed my BSc (Hons) Counselling degree at the University of East London, which required a rigorous three years of intense training, providing me with all the theoretical knowledge for my practice.

Before finishing my degree, I undertook a counselling skills diploma at level 2 and 3. The training was based on the Humanistic approach, which is client-led. The approach emphasises human values their creative and active nature and focuses on the human capacity to overcome despair and hardship through self-awareness.

Practice description

As an integrative counsellor, I plan to work with my clients based on their particular needs and personality. My task is to identify the primary focus for my clients' work by using an assessment interview and choosing relevant intervention techniques and a blend of different modalities. My main aim is to help clients by allowing them to find solutions to their problems. I emphasise the client being an expert, and I am a source of reflection and encouragement. While adopting a non-judgmental, empathic and respectful approach, I encourage my clients to adopt an open and real stance towards a more flexible and curious position to have more choice in how they feel, think and behave.

During the counselling process, my role is to support my clients by accepting them while providing a safe, comfortable space for them to explore their long-buried emotions openly. My aim is not to fix my clients' problems but to help them find missing pieces of the puzzles for themselves. My acceptance and genuineness will enhance the necessary trust in clients to believe in their internal process.

While focusing on the client's ‘here and now’ feelings and awareness to explore their current situations, I will also look into past experiences and future hopes and goals. The sessions will include talking and will be interjected with various interventions that will be tailored to each client. For example, art materials, working with metaphors, guided fantasies, written exercises etc. The diversity of these mediums will allow the clients to dive deep into their thoughts and express emotions through creativity and self-expression. As a counsellor, I aim to work collaboratively to process the possibility of finding ways for my clients to access life even in their most challenging times.

My first session

I offer free 20 minutes consultation to discuss what you are looking for and the best way for us to work together. The initial consultation will give you an opportunity to ask any questions concerning therapy. If you agree to go ahead with therapy with me, then the contract will be given to read, sign and bring along to your first session. If you change your mind, you can cancel at any time by giving me at least two weeks’ notice period.

I offer both open-ended and short-term therapy. Open-ended sessions last as long as the clients need, and short-term therapy is based on 12 sessions that can extend according to the client’s requirements. Each session is 50 minutes long and will be scheduled every week at the same set time.
