Lorena Rivero De Beer, PgD, PhD, MBACP
40 Rodney Street
I am an experienced BACP registered counsellor and psychotherapist. I practice an integrative therapy based on a Person Centred Approach informed by my practice as an intercultural social researcher and artist and my ongoing exploration of the psychoanalytic approach. I work both short term and long term and I can work in English or Spanish.
Some frequently asked questions answered
Where will we meet?
We will meet at my therapy room in 40 Rodney Street
How often will be meet?
Usually we will meet once a week for an hour, or every other week, depending on your needs
How much does it cost?
The cost per session is £40, with concessionary rates for students and unemployed
Will my work with you be completely confidential?
Yes. The only exception would be if I consider you to be at risk to yourself and/or others. In this case I would involve another professional e.g. your GP. I would however, where practical, inform you of my intention to break our agreement of confidentiality.
What will happen next?
You can call me or email me to arrange an initial meeting. Finding a suitable counsellor can be difficult, especially if you have no previous experience of seeing a counsellor. To help you in this process, I offer a free initial 30 minute appointment to help you decide if what I offer could be of value to you.
