Imma Sorrentino Ricciardi Dip Couns, Bsc (Hons)
Hello and welcome to my profile!
Are you struggling with anxiety? depression? addictions? difficult relationship? or feeling stuck? I can help you!
My name is Imma and I am a Person-Centred Counsellor and a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I offer short or/and long term therapy in English and also in Italian.
I offer one to one counselling in a safe, warm, confidential space.
I have worked with clients of different kinds of cultures, races, backgrounds with a range of issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, anger, relationship issues, low self-esteem, etc.
You can contact me by email, text or telephone (whatever feels more comfortable to you) and, please, feel free to ask any questions.
In the first session you will be able to talk about what concerns you, what brought you to counselling and what you would like to achieve. You can also experience how I work and decide if I am the right counsellor for you. It is important that we are able to build a good relationship, so that you can feel comfortable to discuss whatever troubles you, knowing that you will be heard with respect and without judgement. There is no obligation to carry on after this first meeting.
Subsequent sessions usually take place once a week. During our these sessions, you can talk about what bothers you, your feelings, your worries etc. (you decide what you want to share). By exploring your feelings and emotions, you might gain some insights, start to see things differently and understand how to move forward and making changes in your life.
