Veronika Kloucek, MBACP
I am an integrative counsellor and a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
I offer a compassionate, supportive, and confidential space in which you can explore various aspects of your life and talk openly about thoughts and feelings in a way which might not be possible with friends or family.
Most of my work with private clients is long term but I offer short-term therapy too and you can opt for this.
My thinking is based on an embodied mind and the integrative approach allows me to combine traditional therapeutic ideas with contemporary findings from neurobiology and evidence-based models. In this way therapy is tailored to suit your needs, rather than you fitting into a method.
How we work together will depend on your aims and the sorts of difficulties you are experiencing.
In my experience the relationship between client and therapist is an important and powerful tool and I work on developing a space in which you feel able to express what is most difficult for you.
I work privately from practices in West Hampstead and Queens Park (NW6) and near Bond street (W1).
Where to begin?
It can be hard to know where to start. Maybe you don’t know yet whether therapy is the right way forward for you at this time.
A brief phone chat can help answer some initial questions. It will give you a sense of how it feels talking to a therapist and you can arrange an initial session.
The initial session is an opportunity to meet and decide how I could be of help to you and how we can work together. I will ask questions about you and we will talk about your therapeutic goals and how best to progress. You can ask about the process of therapy and we will agree our meeting times and the fee.
