About me and my therapy practice

Hello my name is Virginia. I am an accredited, qualified and practicing integrative psychotherapist with a focus in Trauma and Dissociation. I work with adults of all ages and from all walks of life. In my practice I draw from principles of both traditional talking therapies and somatic approaches adapted to individual needs.

I offer short and long term psychotherapy. I believe that therapy is about building a trusting relationship between the therapist and the client in a non-judgmental and safe environment so that positive and long lasting change can occur.

I work with individuals of all backgrounds who experience difficulties in a variety of areas such as low moods, anxiety, stress, bereavement, relationship, low self-esteem, identity issues and abuse. I am also experienced in working with diagnosed mental health conditions such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD), Dissociation and General Anxiety Disorders and depression.

I am an accredited member of British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP).

Practice description

My approach is flexible so that it can be adapted to your needs. I work relationally, which means that, through the therapeutic relationship, you are encouraged to explore and understand how early experiences and past relationships impact on your present difficulties. In order to access emotional pain and past traumatic experiences trapped in the body I sometimes use a more mindful approach focused on the body in addition to traditional talking therapies. Of special interest to me is how unresolved and traumatic experiences can be healed and transformed by a greater integration of the mind and body.

I work in private practice in person and online. I am based in London and Paris

In my practice, I see individuals on short and long term contracts.

My experience includes working with low moods, anxiety, stress, bereavement, relationship difficulties, abuse, identity issues, low self-esteem and diagnosed mental health conditions such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD), Dissociation and General Anxiety Disorders and Depression.

In addition to my private practice, I have experienced working for the NHS and charities.

Training:

I trained at Regents University in London and hold a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.

My training also includes Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, which is a body centered therapeutic approach to help people with trauma.

I also hold an IAN Post Graduate Certificate in Attachment.

Professional Affiliations:

I am an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapist (MBACP) and I abide by their Code of Ethics.

I am also a member of the European Society for Trauma and Dissociation

My first session

Before the initial session, I offer a half hour phone conversation to assess your needs and to discuss practicalities. 

The next step is to schedule a first introductory session of 50 minutes (also called an assessment) during which you have the opportunity to tell me more about you, your past and the reasons bringing you to therapy. This is also a space for you to ask any questions about my practice. 

 Therapy sessions are usually weekly.
