E. Jenny Miroshnikova - Fd Counselling, Reg BACP
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist offering therapy to individual clients age 18+ in private practise in Guildford and Farnham. I am experienced in working with loss (including invisible loss, such as miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy), still birth, infertility, bereavement, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression and low mood, family and relationship issues.
Life is full of challenges, uncertainty and losses. Sometimes we can cope with them, at other times these challenges can become overwhelming. We might feel sad and lonely, get caught up in our thoughts and feelings and might not want to talk to family and friends so we don't make them concerned. In times like this, counselling can be helpful.
I believe counselling can help you to understand yourself better, to broaden the perspective on your situation, to find inner resources to work through a particular issue and to move forward living happier and more meaningful life. I see my role as a facilitator of this process.
I am a humanistic counsellor and in my work I integrate various approaches and creative techniques . I will draw on the therapies that best suit your needs.
How counselling can help:
Counselling is a time out for you to reconnect with yourself. Taking time to pay attention and acknowledge your thoughts and feelings during therapy and making sense of them increases your self-awareness. This increased self-awareness can bring changes to many aspects of your life: the way you feel about yourself, to your work, relationships, parenting ext., as we connect with others better if we are well connected to ourselves.
Your raised self- awareness gives you the power to see choices in life, can give you strength and courage to work out where to go next on your life journey so that living and being was more meaningful to you.
What I offer:
I offer a warm, caring and supportive therapeutic relationship in a non-judgmental and confidential environment to explore your feelings, thoughts and situations that are troubling you. I believe that the relationship between a counsellor and client based on mutual trust and respect create conditions for change and growth and it is the key for the therapy to be successful.
I am a registered member of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work to their ethical guidelines.
Before I began to work as a counsellor, I had extensive experience of working in education with children and teenagers in different roles including working a sa dyslexia tutor and providing support to parents. I am aware of the emotional repercussions of learning difficulties such as dyslexia and autistic spectrum disorder and their life-long legacy for the person and their family.
The I have holistic approach to life and work with the whole person.
I am a native speaker of Russian and I can offer therapy in Russian language.
