About me and my therapy practice

Life is full of ups and downs. Sounds like a cliché right? It does but the way you approach these ups and downs depends only on you. It's important to learn to enjoy every chapter of our life. Because that's what life is.

Learning how to drive through these life chapters, being aware of them, and understanding them will lead to healing and growth. We never stop learning our whole life.

I am here to accompany you on this journey of acknowledgement. Acknowledgement of feelings, situations, and what makes you react (or not) to them the way you do.

I hope my message will make you consider at least taking better care of yourself and even having therapy sessions with the right counsellor/therapist for you.

I wish you the best of luck in this chapter!

Practice description

I am currently offering face-to-face therapy sessions in Hackney, East London, and online therapy sessions nationwide.

I am a qualified family psychotherapist with over 11 years of experience, offering psychotherapy for adults aged 18 and over, couples, and families.

I have a broad range of experience working with various issues such as anxiety, sadness, loss, depression, health-related problems, low self-confidence, stress, grief, communication problems, difficulties related to ageing, other life cycle changes (leaving home, having a committed relationship, marriage, welcoming a baby, teenage years, moving, mid-life, end of the life cycle, unplanned life transitions, family of choice), trauma, relationship or family issues, low self-esteem, day-to-day life struggles, personal development, and more.

Additionally, I provide premarital counselling to couples.

Therapy sessions can be either short or long-term, and in our first session, I will explain in detail how we will work together.

My goal is to create a warm and safe space where everyone feels welcome and supported without fear of being judged.

Fees

Individuals: £70 (online) / £75 (in person)

Couples: £90 (online) / £95 (in person)

Families: £100 (online) / £105 (in person) 

I have a limited number of appointments available for those on low income.

My first session

Before the first session, I will provide an initial 10 minutes online or telephone consultation, so we can discuss what brings you to therapy and how can I better support you.

Most people feel anxious at their first meeting with a therapist. This is perfectly normal. I understand how difficult it is to make this decision. In the first session, I will explain how therapy works, we will discuss confidentiality, and previous experience with therapy (if any) and I will answer your questions.

About me and my therapy practice

You are here because everything or some things in your life may seem too much, trying to cope with everyday life, there seem to be aspects of life that are causing you concern and you don't know and understand why.

I am here to support you if you need to untangle the 'wires' of your mind, understand a certain situation, want to make a change, find your way, or just want to grow and heal.

I can’t promise it will be easy, I cannot give you a time frame, I don’t have a special recipe but I will provide a space where you can feel welcomed, heard, understood, and safe. We are all unique, we can perceive and react to things in many different ways. It takes patience and willingness to work through.

Whether you just need to talk to someone or you need to resolve aspects of life that seem overwhelming, you can book a session and get the help and support you need to move into the future with confidence.

Testimonials

"Ana is very patient, kind and really takes time to understand you. She offers a lot of help, but most importantly allows you the breathing space to really think deep down and find your own answers and solutions. The tools she has given me throughout our time together have really helped me on my journey and shall continue to help way into the future." 

"I am grateful for the support received, I can see a difference. Happy that I chose you, you were accepting of the nonsense I was saying during our phone call." 

"Therapy is self-care-loving investment in yourself." 



My first session

To better understand your needs and offer optimal support, I offer a 10-minute initial online or phone consultation before our first therapy session. We will discuss your reasons for seeking therapy and how I can better support you.

When meeting with a therapist for the first time, it's normal to feel anxious, but there's no need to worry. As a qualified therapist, I understand that it can be a challenging decision to make. In your initial session, I'll explain how therapy works, and we'll discuss confidentiality. We'll also go over any previous experiences you may have had with therapy, if applicable, and I'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. Remember, there's no shame in seeking help, and taking the first step is often the hardest but most important one.
