Gianina Ardeleanu- online counselling for anxiety, depression and COVID19 impact

About me

We all experience suffering to a greater or lesser extent throughout our lives.

I can imagine that life is hard for you right now and that you tried different things to manage on your own before deciding to find a therapist. Maybe you tried to speak about what’s going on with friends and family, but with little success. You might feel all alone, so alone and like no one can understand or help with what’s hard to manage. If you feel overwhelmed with powerful thoughts and feelings, lost your joy in things that were pleasurable, lost your sleep at night being lost in thoughts, or if relationships with loved ones are affected, know that therapy can help you. I want to help you to live the life you want, to be the person you want to be.

In my practice I see many clients that struggle with anxiety, panic attacks and/or depression. I worked successfully with people that were hurting emotionally, had difficulties in believing in their abilities and skills, or people who were exhausted from trying to please others or to meet unrealistic expectations.

A trained and experienced therapist can help with anxiety, depression, relationships and/or everyday life stress.

Take a minute and think what hurts, what are your struggles, what keeps you stuck. Whatever you might be going through, no matter how scared and lost you might feel, I want to be part of your journey. I want you to allow me to be your companion while searching the path you want to be on. I want us to find together what you lost, or what you never had.

You are not alone!

Counselling or psychotherapy can shed light on our difficulties and offer a space to share things that have been too hard to bear.

I can help you to identify and highlight areas which are causing you difficulties and help you to develop new ways of thinking, coping and behaving in order to deal with problems and issues, pursue goals and manage the process of change. It is possible for things to shift and for a sense of well-being to re-emerge.

My Approach

I am trained in a variety of counselling modalities, and alongside talking therapies I can facilitate expression through different art mediums for when there are no words to express what’s going on.

Together we can create an organic therapeutic process that will be unique to you and your needs. You are important and you deserve the best possible care there is. Get the help you need. Reach out!

I have seen in my practice clients greatly improve their emotional well-being by developing insight, new behaviours, self-acceptance and compassion.

Everyone’s counselling needs are different. Some people will only need a few sessions, while others might be needing more long term counselling support. Contact me and let's explore together how counselling can help you.

Through the therapy process you can diminish suffering, overcome adversity and reframe, reduce or eliminate distressing thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Ultimately, this can enhance your emotional well-being and interpersonal relationships.

Your first session

Often clients first come to counselling because they feel like life is getting on top of them and that their usual ways of coping are not working. Most clients that reach out experience symptoms of anxiety and/or depression and they can identify the crippling effect it has on everyday life, work and relationships.

Counselling can help you to manage anxiety and/or depression.

Your first session is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for you to get a sense of how it feels to be in therapy with me.

When we first meet we will explore what brings you to therapy and what are your expectations.

By the end of your first session you will have a clear understanding if therapy is what you need right now and you will be able to decide if I am the right therapist for you. Finding the right therapist is a subjective choice based on whether you feel a sense of rapport and trust with the therapist.

Contact me to discuss my availability for therapy sessions. Start your journey now!

To arrange a first session please contact me by phone or email. If I am not fully booked I will offer you an appointment within 48 hours or less. If I have no availability I might offer you a space on my waiting list or I might suggest you to contact some of my trusted and experienced colleagues. When you first make contact we will figure out together what will work best for both of us.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I hope to get the chance to get to know you, too.

Hopefully, the information I have provided has been helpful in informing your decision to pursue therapy and selecting a therapist.

If you have any questions or if there are other things you want to find out more about, feel free to contact me.

I offer on line sessions.

I work with children, teenagers and adults of all ages. I have got specific training to work with children and teenagers from the prestigious Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
