Hello, thanks for looking at my profile. My name is Bianca, I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, based in Barking, East London, working in a warm, supportive and holistic way, in a safe and confidential space, to explore whatever difficulties you may be currently experiencing in your life, and to help you find solutions.
A holistic view means that I am interested in engaging and developing the whole person. You can think of this as different levels, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. It’s the concept that the human being is multi-dimensional. We have conscious and unconscious aspects, rational and irrational aspects. We are a bodymind. Not just intellect, but emotion, instinct, intuition, as well. Supporting people in using all of their ‘multiple intelligence’ that means insight, rationality, logic, emotion, hunches, gut feel, creativity, a sense of harmony and rhythm.
Counselling provides a confidential space for you to talk about what's going on for you at the moment, any struggles or challenges, overwhelming, unresolved issues, setbacks, wounds, or a part of you, you hold back. It explores your desired changes, options, choices, aspirations, and any conflict with our self, what you long for, any existential concerns or being at a turning point it may offer a different perspective, feedback or guidance, opportunities to develop a greater understanding of who you are & make sense of your life, it looks in depth not only at the symptoms, but also your core issues, the causes, and what these might mean for you. The counselling considers, and helps crystallise, your thoughts & feeling’s, what matters to you, the known & unknown aspects of you. Counselling can be a sounding board for you to be heard, listened to, say things which are difficult to say, discover a part of you, which you just don't get, or to make connections.
Alongside the current issues you bring to counselling, we may look at what you really want and what stops you getting there so far, using counselling as a journey of self-discovery
I offer both short-term counselling and long-term psychotherapy, which is deeper holistic work with clients who want to explore their life journey so far, and recover a lost sense of their authentic selves.
My approach is integrative, incorporating all the strands of psychotherapy, particularly the Jungian and Psychodynamic.
