About me

Hello! My name is Carmen and I am working as a private practitioner.

About me: I am an extremely, competent, positive and enthusiastic person. I’m the type of person that works well in hardworking environment. I have excellent interpersonal skills and communication; enjoy interacting with people that have different cultures and backgrounds. I like to help other people and feel that one of my strong points is my uplifting personality. The reason I become psychologist is to give people hope. I have 13 years experience working with children, adults, families and couples.

My practice:
I can offer Person Centered Therapy, Integrative Therapies, Systemic Therapy and  Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT).

I am an experienced therapist working in a private practice, with a wide range of clients, issues, situations and circumstances. I worked before in schools, drug and alcohol rehab and occupational health (EAP and assessments).

It never ceases to amaze me, the strength and courage my clients have in taking that first step into counseling.

I absolutely love what I do. I consider it a tremendous privilege to have helped and worked alongside so many people who have undergone personal growth and development, making sustainable changes to their lives for the better.

How counselling works: While providing a safe and supportive environment that honours your life experiences, difficulties and future plans, I am determined to facilitate awareness, power and will to develop your understanding of yourself and help you cultivate self-love, healthy relationships and ultimately to build a happier life.

First session: In the first session you will meet me in my private practice (via online or telephone) for the first time. Sessions last for 50 minutes, and take place in a quiet room with just two of you present. A number of things will be covered such as confidentiality, data protection and session timings.
I will ask you questions that will help me to understand your surface problem(s) before we can explore any deeper issues.
Some questions asked may include:

- Why you want a specific therapy
– Why you sought therapy
– Your personal history and current situation
– Your family history

On-going Sessions
You may find these weekly sessions fly past once you start to open up. The type of counselling I offer is one where the relationship between you and me is central to the counselling sessions and where a greater understanding of your concerns can be achieved.

Online counselling / Telephone counselling: For some conditions, online / telephone therapy can be just as effective as in-person treatment.Why is it useful? Well, if you live miles away from any counsellors, struggle going outside, or like the idea of getting help in your own home, then it’s a flexible alternative. Some people find it’s a good first step towards face-to-face counselling too.

Exceptions: For Trauma and abuse treatment face to face is recommended.

        Further information

        Counseling and psychotherapy can help with specific areas of your life such as depression, stress, anxiety, loss, grief & bereavement, low self esteem, confidence, anger management, relationship issues and family difficulties, bullying, learning difficulties, addictions, feeling down and suicidal thoughts, to name a few.

        It could be that you don't know exactly what's troubling you, you just know that you feel stuck and unable to move forward. With the right counselor, therapy allows you the safety and luxury to self-indulge and explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions; it can help you to put things into perspective and make positive changes to your life.
