About me and my therapy practice
Hi, my name is Valentina and I am qualified as a Person centred counsellor. I am GSRD aware and work with adults as well as children from the age of 6.
Working either online or face to face, I work with you through what is causing you distress. Providing you with a safe space and the time to explore your feelings without any judgment from me
Giving yourself this time and space can provide so many benefits, working through any concerns with someone objective can allow you to find solutions you may not have considered before.
I have experience with living with chronic health conditions, working through anxiety, loss, trauma and low mood.
Being primarily person centred, sessions are ultimately directed by you. Sessions are not limited but assessed regularly to see what is working best for you.
Sessions are either face to face or online via zoom lasting roughly 50 minutes. We aim for these sessions to be weekly.
Registered with the BACP, you can be confident that I follow their ethical framework.
My first session
Before our first session, I normally try to chat either by phone or email to discuss the nature of our sessions. This allows you time to see if I am a good fit for you and for us to begin to build that relationship before our first session.
First sessions generally consist of reviewing plans for therapy and ensuring the paperwork as been completed. We work together to make a plan for our future sessions.
If working with children, part of the first session will include a parent/guardian before moving on to work with the child directly.
A one off online initial "taster" session can be arranged with a fee.
