Hello and thank you for visiting my page. I am Dina, and I am a qualified and registered integrative therapist offering counselling and psychotherapy in Isleworth South West London.
I am experienced in working with:
- anxiety disorder, general anxiety, panic attacks
- abuse (physical, sexual, emotional)
- feeling sad, depression, seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
- family issues, couples counselling
- separation, divorce, bereavement - low self esteem, little self confidence
- trauma and traumatic experiences.
If you are looking for an positive and empowering approach than this might be for you. My aim is it to help people to address their troubles from different angles. First in a more practical way, so that problems could be addressed NOW in a more helpful way. The second layer is to investigate and resolve the deeper reason for this particular issue. So that the new constructive and resolution orientated approach can be sustained and anchored.
Therapy helps with that since it helps to identity unconscious themes and scripts that have been running and re-running throughout your life. Gaining insight and more understanding can enable you to make better choices in your life since instead of following the script that someone else has written for you, you‘ll become the author of your life.
As we are all unique, my approach to therapy is an integrative one, which means that I work with clients in an empowering way that is most suited to them, by drawing on a number of different therapeutic models. But above all, I provide a warm, open, non-judgmental and supportive space where you can be yourself.
Therapy is not ‘giving advice’ but is a collaborative process which aims to help you to increase an understanding of your troubles, to promote growth and to help you to make necessary changes so that you can move forward and build a more satisfying and happier life.
The first session
It's important you feel comfortable with your therapist, the only way to know this is to meet them. I offer an initial session for a reduced fee. This is a chance for us to meet and have an informal chat about what has brought you to therapy, and what your goals and expectations are, and for you to ask any questions you may have.
This initial session is a chance for you to decide how you feel about us working together, with of course absolutely no obligation to do so.
For any questions you may have, or to arrange an initial session please call or email me.
