Hello, I'm Frederica, I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, which means that I draw on a number of counselling approaches, within the humanistic field, depending on what is appropriate for you. I offer a safe, welcoming and non-judgemental environment in which you can explore difficult emotions and experiences at your own pace, in confidence.
Sharing and talking about our problems with another person is the oldest form of medicine; it can help us feel acknowledged and heard. I believe that we are the experts of our own life as we are the only ones that have lived it. Feeling genuinely heard, and being treated as an equal and unique individual throughout the psychotherapy process, creates an environment where acceptance and positive change can grow.
I offer short-term and long-term psycho-therapeutic counselling depending upon what you would like to achieve.
It is important to find the right therapist for you, so I am happy to offer a free consultation with no obligation to continue. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and abide by their ethical framework.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
