About me

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.

Why therapy?

In the old days there was an oral tradition of storytelling. This was the very first way of communicating life experiences and the creative imagination. We are grasping the ‘moral of the story’ easily since it speaks not only to our everyday consciousness - but also to our unconscious. For children are stories like medicine: they can teach, heal and ignite imagination.
For grown ups it can also be very healing to tell your story. The therapist bears witness to what happened in your life - in a compassionate and non- judgmental way.Having your story heard affirms what has happened to you and the process of therapy offers the opportunity to process that and to integrate it. It may be the first time you are putting into words what happened to you. Painful thoughts and feelings can be articulated out loud – and there can be a freedom in expressing what previously felt inexpressible, unforgivable or unthinkable.
This helps to distance yourself from what happened and becoming less identified with the events and the feelings surrounding them, and more at peace with yourself. If you have endured traumatic experiences, describing what happened helps you to understand and can lead to healing those old wounds. We all can experience things like relationship or family issues, divorce, abuse or bereavement etc. that may feel deeply upsetting, confusing or overwhelming. When crisis strikes feelings of depression, anger, fear or even panic can debilitate our usual coping strategies. Therapy helps to identify 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.

My approaching

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. That's why I offer a half price initial session. 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.

Next steps

For any questions you may have, or to arrange a half price initial session please call or email me.
