ALESSANDRA AGUECI Psychologist and Psychotherapist
I am an experienced Psychotherapist and Psychologist, originally from Rome, who moved to London many years ago to pursue a Masters Degree in Psychotherapy. I am very passionate about my job.
Through my experience I came to realise that each person is facing a unique combination of experiences and my only intention is to offer the RIGHT SPACE where you can explore what is troubling you. I aim to build an authentic therapeutic relationship, to promote your independency and ACCEPT YOU AS YOU ARE.
In these regards I follow a Person-Centred Theory, which is a variant of the Humanistic Approach. This means that you are at the centre of the work. I, therefore, value your individuality, respond to your unique needs, which will eventually empower your full potential.
I gained extensive experience around drug and alcohol addictions together with general Addiction Behaviours.
I am specialised in PTSD, trauma, domestic violence, general anxiety disorder, depression and sexual abuse.
I am also well prepared to offer comprehensive support services to clients from a variety of backgrounds with a wide range of needs.
Training, qualifications & experience
Masters Degree in Psychotherapy
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Free initial ONLINE consultation, with no further obligation.
- Assessment session face to face at a reduce rate: £30
- Sessions are £65 and last 50 minutes
- A limited number of reduced fee slots are available for those who genuinely cannot afford to pay for counselling.
AIM OF THERAPY:
Firstly you should ensure that you only go to see a therapist who is fully qualified and experienced, and registered and accredited with a professional body (UKCP or BACP).
Within the initial session you can generally establish whether the service I offer is the right fit for you. Following, you can decide a more convenient time and we can agree how to structure our work together.
The therapeutic change occurs approximately three months after the beginning of therapy, however this is only an indicative period. There is not a time limit for therapy, rather it is flexible and creative following your own personal needs.
