Ronaldo Stroppa - BSc (Hons), Dip Couns, Registered MBACP
Ealing - London
After completing a BSc in Psychology at University of London, I furthered my post graduate training and qualified as a counsellor.
I have years of experience in offering counselling to clients from different backgrounds and cultures. I work with individuals, couples and groups and can offer short or long term counselling.
I provide a confidential and safe space where you can talk and, together, we can explore your challenges and start to understand how they impact your life and your relationships, be they personal, professional or romantic relationships.
I see clients on weekday evenings on a weekly basis and practice in Ealing and Ruislip - both practices are close to buses and tube stations. There is free street parking at both locations after 6pm.
What to expect in our first session?
The first session is an opportunity to meet up and start exploring the reasons that brought you to counselling.
In this session we can discuss how I work and what your expectations are.
I believe there is no such thing as a pre-determined number of sessions - I respect that each client is unique. Together we can work to establish how counselling can help you.
How does counselling work?
Counselling can help if you are feeling depressed or bereft, suffering from trauma, anxiety or stress, going through emotional or relational difficulties or maybe just looking at ways to move forward and live life to the full.
Talking about personal difficulties can be painful - in my practice I respect that and am guided by your pace.
My approach is based on Relational Transactional Analysis which builds a therapeutic relationship between client and therapist.
I offer support in understanding your self and your behavior in relation to others.
Confidentiality, mutual respect and freedom from judgement are some of the values I believe to be important to counselling - I take these responsibilities seriously in my practice.
I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics and I am DBS checked.
I can offer counselling both in English and Portuguese.
