Hello and welcome to my page.
Research shows that "the relationship" is the therapy, in which we and our clients live, breathe and find meaning.
Have you experienced domestic violence, suffer from depression, wants to know how to repair your relationship and live a fulfilling life, going through some work-related stress, experienced and dabbled with drug & alcohol addictions, suffer from anxiety, had a bereavement or loss, suffering in silence about self-harming or at a crossroad and don't know which way to turn, do you need a safe environment to explore all these overwhelming issues, please feel free to contact Capes Haven Ltd Counselling Services.
My services include: One to One counselling and
I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Practitioner, trauma informed Brainspotting and Supervisor based in North London. My work also involves being a counselling lecturer and mentoring freelance trainer.
I hold a BSc (Honours) Degree in Integrative Counselling awarded by Roehampton University and approved by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I am also a fully registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). This is very important to you, as it means that I am bound and adhere to their ethical framework and code of conduct.
Being an integrative therapist means that I work using integration of the following modalities: Psychoanalysis, Humanistic ( person-centred and personal growth), Psychodynamic (predominantly early life development and experiences), Existentialism and Phenomenology (the what if? and why? questions we ask ourselves).
