About me

Welcome!

You don’t have to suffer alone or in silence.

If you have been wondering for a while if talking to a professional might help you have come to the right place. It is likely, if you are here, that you are looking for someone to talk to who can support you through an emotional challenge or problem you have right now in your life with understanding, kindness and compassion. Somebody who will listen to you without judgement or criticism, helping you to bring a deeper understanding to issues that are troubling you. 

We live in a world full of challenges, especially in these times, and you may be finding yourself feeling anxious, depressed or overwhelmed by it all.

You might find it hard getting out of bed in the morning or you might feel like you are walking through life with a dark cloud over your head or just feeling overwhelmed by the constant grind of life. Maybe you are just feeling stuck in life, at work or in love or just going through the motions. You might know there is a happier and more fulfilled person inside of you, but you don’t know how to reach her. You are aware that deep down something is not right and that there must be more to life than this. 

I offer you a safe and confidential space where you can talk about your fears and anxieties and explore ways to overcome any difficulties and struggles you might be experiencing. Sometimes it can make all the difference to talk to someone who you can trust and who will meet you with kindness and acceptance of who you are, no matter what state you are in right now.

My approach is founded on the principle of psychosynthesis which sees our problems not just as difficulties to be overcome but also focuses on the potential we all have to live a rich and fulfilling life connected to a deep place inside us. It is an integrative approach, drawing on a range of theoretical models and ways of working which can be adapted to your needs and what work best for you.  

I invite you to use this private and safe space to share anything that concerns you without feeling guilty that you might be ‘burdening’ your loved ones with your situation. I offer you emotional warmth and listen to you with empathy and acceptance. I will hold the space for you to explore what is troubling you and to move forward to a place of more inner peace and well-being. I always try working in a natural way establishing mutual trust and encouraging connection. 

I am a Qualified Psychosynthesis Counsellor and member of the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP) and I am fully trained Coach following ICF guidelines. Originally, I was trained as an educator and worked extensively with parents and children. In both roles I gathered deep knowledge in human development which supports me in being with you in different stages of your life. Throughout my professional experience I have helped many people improve their well-being, manage their emotions and, ultimately, and find increasing joy and happiness in their lives. 

I invite you to have a 20-minute chat with me, free of charge, before making a commitment. This will give us an opportunity to get a sense if I am the right person for you and for me to see what you need and how I am might be able to help you.

I look forward to our journey together where I walk alongside you and support you in connecting to your whole Self and finding a way through your challenges.

Warm Regards

Diana

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

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).
