Veronica Toescu (UKCP registered, Registered Member BACP)
I am a Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapist (UKCP registered, Registered Member BACP) working with young people and adults. My intention is to be present in such a way as to facilitate your personal development and enhance your wellbeing.
We will work in an environment where you will find non-critical acceptance, where we can focus on your experience and strengths.
My approach to Counselling & Psychotherapy is:
- Humanistic – a belief that individuals have an inner drive to discover their own potential
- Person-centred - a respect for autonomy, self-determination in an environment that encourages positive personal growth. My work is guided by the client’s experience.
In the dialogue established during therapy, the different psychological components (thoughts, emotion, behaviour, physical and spiritual presence) that determine a person to seek therapy are equally attended to. Establishing realistic goals are an on-going component of my work.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I have lived in England since 1985 and undertaken all my training here in the UK. However, Spanish is my mother tongue and I speak fluent Romanian. I am happy to conduct therapy in any of these languages.
I charge £50 for the therapeutic hour (50 minute session). Fees are payable by cash or cheque at the beginning of each session. I am able to offer a few concession fees depending on your circumstances.
Since I am able to see you at different locations please contact me to see which location would suit you best.
I have Professional Indemnity Insurance and an up to date enhanced CRB check .
In order to ensure that I practice according to the professional guidelines of the governing bodies I adhere to (UKCP, BACP) I see a supervisor regularly and this work is based on confidentiality helping me maintain a high quality in my work.
