Hi, my name is Ivana and I work from specialist therapy rooms in Kingswood. Currently, I provide counselling for Newport Mind. Offering specialist support and care for people experiencing a range of difficulties, from anxiety, bereavement and domestic violence, to early trauma and learning difficulties. While there are times we all experience some form of grief or difficulty, I can offer a private and welcoming space to explore your concerns.
Whether you are having trouble maintaining deep and nourishing connections in your closest relationships, or have been touched by some form of trauma. Experiencing a sense of safeness with a counsellor, can pave the way for new beginnings. Finding effective ways that essentially work for you, means attending to your concerns while developing a reliable working relationship that offers a pliable space, for movement and potential creativity.
Taking the first step is a significant beginning, to find someone who will work for you, and with you. If you would like to get in touch please call or email, to arrange an initial meeting. All communications are treated as confidential.
