Alina Barrowcliff UKCP MBACP, Counselling in London W1 and Henley on Thames
45 Station Road
10 Harley Street
I offer psychotherapy to individuals from my consultation rooms in Harley Street,London W1, and Henley-on-Thames, South Oxfordshire.
If you are you feeling troubled, overwhelmed, stuck, unfulfilled, anxious or depressed I provide a warm, supportive, confidential open-minded space to explore your difficulties. Our purpose will be to realise new understandings and ways of being so you can live a richer more fulfilling life. No subject is off limits.
I offer a holistic approach that sees body, mind, emotions and spirit as inseparable aspects of being which all require care and concern. I will not impose fixed ideas or concepts but I will do all I can to facilitate your search for understanding and help you find your own meaning of life.
Life can take varied paths, sometimes strange and sudden or slow and gradual leaving us in unexpected places. Therapy provides perspective, makes sense of what has happened and provides a basis for moving forward.
I believe that respect for the individual, understanding and being real are important qualities for therapy, they will underlie how I engage with you.
I have extensive experience of working with adult clients of all ages experincing many differing, often enduring problems and concerns.
I have a particular interest in early experiences and parenting and offer parent support therapy. Alongside my private practise I work for an affordable counselling service for adolescents and young people in Henley-on-Thames.
What to expect
I offer an initial consultation to discuss your difficulties and decide whether my approach is right for you. If you decide to start therapy, a regular weekly session time will be agreed and reserved for you.
I offer short term, time limited and open-ended therapy which we will discuss in the initial consultation. The choice is yours.
