Draz Bjelobaba - Counsellor & Therapeutic Coach
01525 372731 / 07508 375633
Hi there my name is Draz. I am a Person Centred and Integrative Counsellor offering a confidential, supportive and accepting space for us to discuss any issues or thoughts that may be causing you distress.
For those with busy lifestyles, I am able to offer sessions during the day, evenings and weekends. As well as face to face sessions, I also offer online and telephone appointments. I offer long and short term therapy.
I can offer sessions in Croatian and Serbian as well as English.
I offer a free initial session for us to meet and discuss your needs and to see if you are happy to continue counselling with me.
From professional (and personal) experience I have learned that everybody experiences difficulties at some stage in their life. My aim is to help make your journey more comfortable as we explore together these difficulties, and address issues that might be concerning you.
I am a Person Centred and Integrative Counsellor. This means I am guided by your feelings and your life experiences. However you would like to take that first step towards positive change, I will be able to support you on your journey.
Together we will think about what is causing your difficulties, highlight things that might no longer be working for you and how you can start to introduce positive changes.
I can work with individuals, children, young people, families and groups. We can have sessions on a short term basis, or over a longer period depending on your needs and wants.
What to expect from our sessions together
When you are ready, please call or email me using the details above. We will then arrange an initial appointment which is free of charge, and will last around 50 minutes to an hour.
I understand that meeting me for the first time may be a little nervous. I will do my best to make you relax and feel at ease so there is no need to worry. We will go at your pace, and you will be in control of the session at all times.
The first sessions gives us an opportunity to have a chat about your goals and what it is that has lead you to me, and discuss why you have sought counselling right now. It's also your chance to ask any questions you might have, and to ask me about my experiences and I will also tell you a bit more about exactly how counselling works. Most importantly, I want you to decide if you feel comfortable working with me, and equally that I feel I am able to provide the right service for your needs.
