Gabriele Bassoli, Counselling Therapist, BSc (Hons), PGD, MBACP
Art Of Thought
147 Commercial Street
Throughout years of practice I have developed confidence in supporting people with stress, anxiety, depression and feeling lost and hopeless.
In my perception, counselling therapy is a way of helping people to overcome stress, emotional problems, relationship problems or troublesome habits.
Nowadays I tend to work with issues like anxiety, depression, difficulties due to trauma and changes, bereavement and chronic-illness. I use integrative models from CBT, Mindfulness, Creative Meditation
to Psychosynthesis. I am however open to explore and support you with other issues that you might experience.
I offer short or long term counselling therapy for a wide range of issues using humanistic and integrative models. I was trained at the Psychosynthesis Education Trust, where I was awarded with a PG Dip. in Psychosynthesis Counselling. I have developed skills working with different therapeutic models in a wide range of services across London.
My aim is to support you focusing on unresolved past patterns, present issues and future potential. I will enable the best conditions for your own exploration and discovery through genuine empathy and understanding and practical and creative interventions.
In the past I have worked for a NHS Bereavement Service and for a local charity that supports people living with depression, anxiety and chronic illness.
I can offer counselling therapy in three different languages, Including English, Italian (mother tongue) and Spanish.
I work full time for NHS during 9AM-5PM, however I am available to see clients in my private counselling practice, based just off Liverpool Street Station.
In my private counselling practice I can work with clients and groups, mainly during evenings ( 6pm-10pm) and week ends.
