Stella Neocleous MBACP, BPC
Kingston Upon Thames
020 3509 4338
Stella has a wealth of experience in both the private and NHS sector of mental health whilst also coming from a business background. She retrained 20 years ago as a therapist and believes that therapy is about enabling a person to make the changes in their life which they feel would be of benefit. Sometimes the decision to see a therapist can be as a result of a particular incident, such as a trauma or a bereavement, but at other times it is simply when the person feels 'stuck' or unsatisfied in their life. Her approach is based in the psychodynamic model which means that she bases her work on making links with the past and present in order to help move towards a future which will be more satisfying for the person.
Sometimes the work is set for a fixed number of sessions whilst at other times the work can be left 'open ended', to be ended at a time when enough work has been done for the person to feel ready to move on in their life without the continuing exploration and support of the therapist.
