Elisabetta Romani Therapy
3 Montpelier Avenue
Hello and Welcome to my profile. My name is Elisabetta and I am a qualified, experienced and approachable Integrative Counsellor (MBACP, MBPsS, BA, PGDip). I offer short (say, 6 or 12 sessions), medium (approximately 6 months) and open ended therapy both in English and Italian.
I work with adults in Ealing (W5) and my practice is convenient for people living near Ealing Broadway, in Hanwell, Greenford, Northholt, Southall and Acton. It is also easy to reach from neighbouring boroughs such as Brent and Hammersmith & Fulham. Please consult the map to see where my practice is located.
Having lived in different countries prior to settling in the UK 20 years ago, I embrace and deeply respect cultural and individual differences. Open to diversity in all its forms, I hold an anti-discriminatory stance and I am sensitive to issues related to belonging and adjustment.
I have worked in a variety of mental health and therapeutic settings, supporting individuals struggling with a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, sexual abuse, trauma, PTSD, relationship issues, stress, loss and bereavement.
Often people seek counselling to address specific problems, but at times clients desire to understand themselves better, both in terms of internal processes and in relation to others. You may lead a good enough life, but still feel the desire to change certain aspects which are causing you some distress. It could be that you are experiencing general feelings of emptiness and a lack of purpose and/or meaning. Perhaps you cannot think clearly and compassionately about yourself, or struggle to find your voice. In a warm and non-judgemental space I will listen to you very carefully and help you uncover meanings, whilst reflecting on your patterns and choices.
My special interests include Attachment, Trauma, Intergenerational Therapy, Jungian Dream Analysis, Animal Symbolism, as well as working therapeutically with photographs (my Doctoral Research ) and other artistic mediums clients may bring to therapy.
I am a member of the Metanoia Institute, the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a trainee member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). I honour their Codes of Ethics and follow their professional guidelines.
I am fully insured.
