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 shape our feelings, beliefs and desires. We develop and adapt habits and ideas about who we are and what we need , from early on in life.Some of these habits or patterns can be hidden deep in our unconscious self. Unfortunately these patterns and habits can be constructed through other people's impositions and conditions and this can remove us from our true self . We might not be fully aware of who we are, what our true needs are and how to even go about meeting those needs. Counselling can offer an opportunity to really get to know ourselves in a way that is unique and can be challenging and life-changing. I offer an opportunity to get a better understanding of yourself, as well as 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. This takes place in a safe and warm emotional and physical space, free of judgement , imposition and expectations that can often stand in the way and affect our progress.
In my work, I help you understand how your past experiences have shaped you today. Together we find a way for you to move forward without being powerless about your life. We all have emotional wounds that need healing, and that healing can only start taking place once we allow ourselves to honour and feel the pain,anger and other difficult emotions we avoid . This process can help you get in touch with what really and deeply matters to you in your life,and how you can achieve that in order to feel better about yourself, and live in a more meaningful, authentic and fulfilling way.
I see my work as a unique journey with each client. On that journey, I can help you become a more confident and content person who can have a better quality of life and richer, more meaningful and fulfilling relationships.
I highly value diversity in my personal and professional life.
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.
