Claudia Croppo HCPC & MBACP registered

I speak three languages English, Portuguese (Brazil) and Italian.
How we can work together:
Do you have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Do you feel you'd like to have better relationship with people around you? We all have a moment in our lives when we may feel hard to connect with those around us and its impact in our lives may feel hard to manage. At times you may also struggle to connect with yourself. Lack of connection can feel isolating, depressing and anxiety provoking. Sometimes, seeking help from a non-judgemental professional is the best way to put things into perspective. As a committed and experienced Psychotherapist in London, your emotional and psychological wellbeing is my number one priority. The main focus of our work will be defined by you and centred in your needs. My role is of a companion in your personal journey to support your emotional exploration and growth.
Counselling & Psychotherapy:
Individual counselling or psychotherapy are very powerful ways to develop awareness and understanding of what may afflicting you.
During the sessions you would have a non-judgemental and safe space to explore your feelings, anguishes and conflicts.
Together we would agree on what you would like to focus on and follow your pace.
Creativity and the Arts can be very useful tools to connect with deep feelings that are hard to express in words.
At times I might invite you to engage with your creativity as a way to connect with your inner self or explore any dilemma you may be facing.
Using the arts can range from drawing and painting to using post-card, metaphor and imagination.
Some people would want to use art every session, some other once in a while and you are in charge to choose how to tailor your personal process.
