Jacqui Avanzato MBACP
My training and experience draws from a number of different theories and techniques that allow me to tailor our work to your unique needs.
In practise, we work together to develop a safe, open and positive relationship within which we can explore who you really are and how this affects what you feel and do.
For most, this increase in awareness and expression is enough to provide some relief or clarity. For many others, this new perspective also provides the means and opportunity to make new choices that work towards real and positive changes in how they can respond to life’s challenges.
I take seriously my commitment to provide you with the very best therapeutic experience and as a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) I practise within a strict code of ethics and maintain a highly professional standard of work.
After an brief telephone call we will need to meet for an initial assessment. This is a chance for me to gauge if I am the best person to help you and also for you to see if I am someone you would like to work with.
We will develop a clear goal, and build in regular reviews to ensure we remain focused on getting what you want out of your sessions.
Counselling can seem mysterious, perhaps daunting, especially if this is your first time. Please do not hesitate to call me, without obligation, if you have any questions about what I do or how I work, before you make up your mind to meet me.

My standard fee is £55.00 for 50 minutes. There are reductions for online therapy where this would be appropriate.
I also believe in making therapy accessible for as many people as possible and therefore offer some reduced cost sessions for students and those on low incomes.

I offer short or long term therapy. We will usually meet at my clinic in NW4. Disabled access is available, please call me to confirm your requirements.
