Stacey Landsberg Dip Couns. BACP Accred.
Looking for support is a courageous process that can also provoke much anxiety. I am a warm, empathic, committed professional and have extensive experience working with people with addictions, depression, anxiety, bereavement as well as a range of mental health issues and general difficulties.
I can help you to make sense of your experience, to identify and shift negative patterns and ways of functioning that may have kept you feeling stuck, confused or distressed. Together we can unlock the answers that often already lie deep within you. Through this process you will become empowered to make more positive choices, life enhancing changes and feel more in control.
What is my working model?
My approach is relational and integrative. This means that I tailor my approach according to individual need and preference, drawing on established and effective therapeutic models.
I use grounding techniques that help to build self esteem and provide a safe foundation to work on any deeper issues that may emerge. I passionately believe that with the right support we can all achieve better emotional and mental well being regardless of our challenges and 'labels'.
How will this help?
This will help you to identify and understand defense mechanisms that may have developed to protect you from harm and therefore need to be respected and valued before they can be gently lowered.
If your self esteem is low we can build on your strengths and learn to manage your vulnerabilities. If relationships are difficult to manage we can work together to understand why this happens and how to move towards a healthier way of relating to yourself and others.
More about therapy
An important part of therapy is working collaboratively to find understanding and meaning of the thoughts, feelings and patterns that may stem from the past. This work may involve listening, exploring, reflecting and challenging with a willingness to work together to unravel these difficulties. This can allow freedom and expression to the more resilient parts of you that may have been buried under previous hurt or trauma.
I am accredited by and adhere to the BACP (British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy) ethical framework of good practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
My core training is in Person Centered, Psychodynamic and Transpersonal models.
I work integratively (using different models and strategies as appropriate) within effective models that I draw on tailored to individual need and preference.
My qualifications include:
- 2006 - Advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
- 2009 - Bereavement Counselling Training
- 2011 - Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
I attend courses and workshops on a regular basis and am committed to CPD (continued professional development) which keeps me current in my knowledge and dedicated approach to my work.
I am an experienced group facilitator and provide training to professionals as well as running workshops in prison for those with mental health difficulties and substance misuse issues. I have also run mental health training courses for professionals in substance misuse settings.
I have extensive experience of working throughout the Voluntary Sector providing 1-1 counselling, support and group work for people with substance misuse and mental health issues. I worked for four years as a counsellor for a bereavement service and have volunteered for other London based charities.
My life experience originally drew me to this profession as I experienced my own transformation through dark and painful times which lead me to a greater understanding and insight of myself, how to function effectively and find meaning and contentment in a frequently confusing world. I am passionate in my belief that this path is accessible to everyone, regardless of background or circumstance.
