I am a fully qualified Humanistic Integrative Counsellor working in Belgravia/Victoria in Central London. I use a number of different theoretical approaches: Person-Centred, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, CBT, TA, Mindfulness, NLP and Transpersonal Approaches and I provide both short and long term therapy.
Counselling is a journey; a special relationship that provides space for inner discovery, helping to develop potential and meaning. It is a non-judgmental and empathic space where issue can be transformed.
As a counsellor I feel so privileged to be part of my clients’ journey however short is the time that I am allowed to work alongside them.
They decide the direction, whether it is to heal from past unresolved issues, work through trauma or explore and win through current struggles.
Engaging in this courageous work the client can start feeling empowered, able to overcome their obstacles and able to change their life sometimes in a very fundamental level.
About my approach
The main goal of Humanistic Integrative is to find out HOW individuals perceive themselves HERE and NOW and also recognises human creativity, personal growth, choice and responsibilities.
In my personal view integrative is a personal process, a particular attitude towards different theories and approaches, is a way of being, is the personal stance that allows autonomy and freedom within a solid an secure base of theoretical concepts. This particular stance enables me to be empathic and attuned with the clients personal perspective and not rigid on my own, with the confidence built through growing professionally and personally in a diverse and stimulating environment, where the most valid lesson is to be able to stay with the unknown, leave the assumptions on one side, remain flexible and open and be authentic.
In my practice I feel I integrate different perspectives in an organic model where, moment by moment, I build trust in my own gut reactions and evaluation about what feels right or wrong in different moments of the work with a client.
