Alina Apopei MBACP (Acred), Anxiety Counselling and Psychotherapy
You want something to change, feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed?
I specialise in dealing with relationships issues and dealing with anxiety and I have been a part of the healing and growth journey for clients who were feeling stuck, depressed, suicidal and hopeless, clients who had traumatic experiences and who managed with the help of therapy to change their lives around. I want to help you to do the same.
The reason I trained in and can offer an unique mix of psychological therapies is to have multiple tools to help me adapt to each client needs and personality to help them with a wide range of emotional issues. With over 8 years of training and experience in holistic counselling, psychotherapy, hypnotherapy and EFT in Wimbledon & Blackfriars, I have demonstrated high standards of knowledge, experience and development and became fully accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I believe that a non-judgemental, caring environment will facilitate natural ways of developing and using your own inner resources, where you feel safe to explore your emotions, your thoughts and behaviours to bring about beneficial change. Life and work experiences have taught me to see people as individuals, each having different needs and experiences.
I have extensive experience working with anxiety, relationship issues, depression, illness and chronic pain, anger as well as experience working with people with disabilities.

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.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
