About me and my therapy practice
My name is Valentina and I am an experienced, qualified and BACP registered counsellor working in private practice in Eltham, South East London.
I also work as an assessment counsellor for a privately run counselling service in Greenwich and as a Young people's counsellor in the SEN department of a secondary school and Sixth Form in Sidcup.
I’m trained as an Integrative Counsellor but my practice has evolved into a Pluralistic philosophy, tailoring therapy to suit your own specific needs, offering my clients an integrative and collaborative approach.
Psychodynamic and Humanistic theories are an important part of my work but my clients also benefit from my knowledge and practice in Mindfulness, Polyvagal, CBT and Systemic interventions.
I offer a face to face, confidential and non-judgemental safe space in which to explore your personal concerns, ensuring the trust you place in me is ethically maintained.
I can provide a compassionate, warm and supportive environment to facilitate you understanding what you are going through when you face difficult thoughts and feelings.
My aim is to create a trustworthy therapeutic relationship where you could explore safely what you bring to the sessions. Or where you could observe and work towards personal goals, renew trust in yourself and others, gain confidence and make lifestyle satisfying and meaningful changes.
Please note that due to Covid-19, I’m currently offering counselling sessions via Zoom only.
