"The compulsion to repeat"
Is your life dominated by past patterns?
Do you persist through life - repeating the same old patterns?
In the confusion do you create new patterns. If this sounds familiar maybe counselling can help you to recognise your compulsion to repeat these patterns and help you make better choices.
Hi, we are Desmond and Shereen both qualified and skilled counsellors and counselling supervisors. We are accredited members of the BACP and have a private practice in Norbury, South London. Between us we have experience in working with adults and young people and have several years experience in the field of the mental health service and social services and extensive experience in working with the visually impaired. We are experienced in providing therapy for past and current traumas. A traumatic experience can leave you "stuck" therefore hindering any quality of life. Unblocking a trauma related experience can release you - allowing you the freedom to make choices from a more rational frame of mind.
We both provide school based counselling to young people and families in mainstream schools and also specialist educational settings such as Pupil Referral Units, centres for the visually impaired and the bereaved. Having received counselling training within the NHS, common mental health problems such as anxiety and depression has become one of our specialist areas.
We believe in the uniqueness of the individual therefore are trained and skilled in the use of different approaches to include psychodynamic, person centred, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy ("CBT") and guided imagery and relaxation techniques.
We are experienced counselling supervisors and trainers with specialism in supervising school counsellors.
