Orly Koppel MBACP Snr Accred. BA MA Oxon
I offer a warm and relaxed approach to counselling and am happy to chat on the phone to potential clients - that way, you can get a sense of what it's like to work with me.
A bit of background: I originally studied languages and then worked in International Marketing & Advertising. Since retraining as a counsellor, I have gathered almost 20 years experience working with a large range of issues and clients.
I have worked in many different settings including seven years counselling in several GP practices. I work integratively; using a variety of therapeutic models and techniques including CBT where helpful, always tailored to the needs and wishes of each individual client.
My consulting room is conveniently located in Buchanan Street, in the city centre and has full disabled access.
I have a particular interest in working with clients with Aspergers/Autism and am on the National Austistic Society's resource list. I am happy to work with NT:Autistic couples, as well as family members. I am also very interested in working with clients who are Neurodiverse.
I also have a great deal of expertise in working with trauma, particularly as a result of war, persecution and/or displacement.
I am LGBTQIA+ aware.
Please refer to my website for detailed information. Feel free to phone or email me if you have any questions.
I also offer counselling supervision and professional supervision for case workers/social workers and related professions.
As a member of BACP, I am bound by its Code of Ethics and Practice and subject to its complaints procedure.
