About me and my therapy practice


My name is Galina and I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, an NHS Talking Therapies Counsellor, and a Child Psychotherapist.

My approach to therapy is integrative and relational. This means that I can draw from various theories including humanistic, psychodynamic and behavioural. It also means that I pay close attention to the relationship between us as the most important guide in supporting you to move forward in your life. My primary objective is to create a warm and respectful environment where you feel safe to explore your difficulties and become the ‘expert’ of your own experience.

My qualifications include BA (Hons) in Integrative-relational Counselling and MA in Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy and Counselling. I specialise in working with depression and I have been trained in two evidence-based models in working with depression: Person-Centred Experiential Counselling for Depression (PCE-CfD) and Couple Therapy for Depression (CTfD). 

I have extensive experience in the voluntary sector, as well as the private and public sectors. I work with all ages - children, adolescents and adults, but my special interest and focus has always been in working with adolescents and young adults. 

Personally and professionally, my commitment is in supporting people to make the most of their strengths and to realise their potential whatever that means for them. I believe that each one of us has the potential for experiencing emotional freedom and wellbeing.
