About me

Why counselling?
There are many different reasons why people decide to seek counselling. The modern world presents us all with a myriad of challenges that can be hard to face. We may feel lonely and isolated, we may need help with processing past trauma and loss, we may struggle with depression and anxiety or addiction or we may just need support to cope with demands of our busy lives. I believe that everyone has stages or times in their life when they need help. 

Who I Am
My name is Cecilia and I am an integrative counsellor (PGdip, MBACP) with a friendly and gentle manner. I can help you with many issues such as anxiety, depression and bereavement. I can draw upon a wide range of therapeutic tools as an integrative counsellor. This can help you with the issues you want to work through in a way that is truly geared to your very personal needs.

Supporting You Safely and Ethically
I approach clients in a friendly, warm manner. As a BACP member, I respect and follow therapeutic ethics, based on the BACP ethical framework, which includes important qualities such as being truthful, integral and fair. I feel it's very important to support every individual uniquely and feel that each person has the right to be free to express their issues without judgment. I adhere to important ethical issues which include privacy, confidentiality and clear ethical boundaries.
 
A Warm, Flexible Place to Meet
My therapy is offered face to face in London in a safe setting where you can feel free to talk. Therapy sessions offer an environment where you can express your feelings and gain deeper insight into your difficulties. These sessions are confidential, so you can talk about things you might not feel comfortable discussing with anyone else. The aim is to help you find better ways to cope, or to bring about positive changes to improve your mental and emotional wellbeing.

I have counselling experience with young people by volunteering in YMCA.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
