Step A Day Counselling Services - Ieva Raguckiene
Initial counselling session free of charge either via phone, online or face to face.
Hello and welcome to Step A Day Counselling Services. Take ‘little steps’ to become more confident, resilient and a stronger individual. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, therefore counselling could be a first step towards your better overall well-being.
If you are feeling low, lonely, anxious, having negative or depressive thoughts, going through bereavement/loss/domestic abuse you are not alone and you don’t have to remain silent anymore. I am here to listen and to help you cope with whatever difficulties you are facing.
It could be bullying in workplace or education settings, maybe you are going through relationship difficulties, stress, low self-esteem, racism, discrimination, identity searching or that life does not feel worth living anymore - you don’t need to go through this alone.
I am an Integrative counsellor, which includes Psychodynamic, CBT and central model Person-Centred Approach. This means that I tailor each counselling session with you to help you to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
My career in mental health started 8 years ago, working on wards and in the community with people facing various challenges such as learning difficulties, dementia, OCD, PTSD and other issues. I have an extensive amount of experience working in bereavement and domestic abuse services too.
I have learned that life can become a struggle, not only for people who are going through such difficulties, but for their loved ones too. Therefore counselling can be beneficial for anyone who is ready to talk to someone in a confidential and non-judgemental environment.
If you feel you are ready or you have heard others talking about counselling, but are not quite convinced it could benefit your mental health, take a first step and see where it leads you. I am an open minded person and I understand that counselling might not be for everyone, but I am positive that everyone can benefit from it.
If you would like to contact me, you can do so either by email, message or phone.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
