Gabriella Andronico Italian/English Counsellor&Trainee Supervisor Reg.MBACP FDAP

About me

One size doesn't fit all. I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and Group Facilitator and have experience in working with NHS, NGOs, schools and private practice. I specialize in addictions and women in addiction, low, self esteem, eating disorders, depressions, bereavement and loss, abuse and co-dependency.

There are times in life when we feel the need of something more; an extra hand or help, someone who will not judge us. Somewhere where we can just feel free to be.

I believe in the power of discovery the self through talking and reflecting in a non judgmental environment and Counselling can help to understand better who we are and where we want to go.

As an Integrative counsellor I draw from different theoretical approaches depending on the needs of each individual client.

I offer short and long term therapy on an individual one-to-one basis.

I work in both English and Italian languages.

I am a Registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and of the Federation of Drug & Alcohol Professionals (FDAP) and I follow their Ethical Framework.

My practice is based in Herne Hill, Brixton area of South London


L'approccio "taglia unica" no va bene per tutti. Sono una Counsellor e un facilitatore di gruppi di terapia con un vasta esperienza sia nel campo pubblico che privato (NHS, scuole e no-profit), sono specializzata nel campo delle dipendenze di droghe e alcol, donne e abusi di sostanze, bassa stima di se, depressione, disturbi alimentari, lutti e perdite, abusi e codipendenze.

Ci sono momenti nella vita in cui si sente il bisogno di un aiuto in piú, qualcuno o qualcosa che non ci giudichi, dov'é possibile sentirsi liberi di essere.

Credo nella forza della scoperta di se stessi attraverso il mondo della parola e della riflessione, se avviene in un ambiente libero da restrizioni mentali, sicuro. Per questo credo che il Counselling puó aiutare a ritrovarsi e a capire meglio se stessi, la direzione che si vuole prendere e ció che ci circonda.

Il mio é un approccio integrato che mi permettere di usare diversi metodi teorici a seconda dei bisogni del paziente.

Faccio parte della British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) e della Federation of Drug & Alcohol Professionals (FDAP) e condivido i loro principi etici e professionali.
