Duje Culic MBACP, Dip Couns
I am an experienced and passionate therapist .I believe we are all complex and unique individuals and many reasons can affect how we view and feel about ourselves, and how we relate to others in this life. We can develop and adapt habits and ideas about who we are and what we need from early on and some of these habits or patterns can be hidden deep in our consciousness. We might not be fully aware why we are who we are. Counselling can offer an opportunity to really get to know ourselves in a way that is unique and challenging, and can be life-changing. I offer an opportunity to get a better understanding of who you are, as well as an opportunity to honestly look , experience and reflect on what you feel and what you might want/need in this life, in order to feel more authentic, content and peaceful.
I like to explore the past with my clients, as well as reflect on the present and find a way to make a change. I support my clients emotionally and strive my absolute best to be honest and proactive in this support.
My work is very relationship driven and I believe that having a good relationship between counsellor and client is the most important aspect of therapy.
I highly value diversity in my personal and professional life.
I see my work as a unique journey with each client.
I offer one to one counselling, telephone and Skype counselling and group counselling. The sessions can be short term or long term (open ended). I have flexible working arrangements and hours.

It's really hard but also very courageous to start looking for ways to help yourself. Counselling is a unique opportunity to make a change and start working towards becoming more authentic and fulfilled as well as to find productive ways of coping with the source of stress and anxiety in your life. So well done for even reading this far!
I understand it can seem really daunting and scary asking for help, when you haven't experienced Counselling before. I am happy to answer any questions and talk about what you can expect and what your needs might be, without any obligation. I prefer to have a chat with my clients before we make an appointment for the first session.
