Hello! My name is Madalina. I'm trained in Psychodynamic Therapy and CBT with Psychology as my first language. In 2019, the Timeline Exercise was published - an article of simplified practice of great help to clients. This is about vision: https://newbeginningspage.com
My practice includes variety of psychotherapeutic modalities such as Psychodynamic, Person Centred and CBT, but the core of my work is based on three main considerations: clients' views and choices, my expertise and evidence-based practice research.
I can help with both individual clients and client couple therapy.
Your first session will be a session of assessment, where your reasons for seeking therapy at that specific moment in time are described. I would encourage you to think and feel confident that there is help available and ways forward.
Online and remote sessions are at a discounted fee depending on my client's accessibility and duration of treatment. I have successfully delivered online/ remote psychotherapy and such experiences stand as good practice evidence.
Can counselling/psychotherapy help?
Psychotherapy is a process, a rapport, an interaction and an examination of difficulties; it is not an advisory service and as such questions of how it can help are more appropriate than whether or not it can. It certainly can.
Psychotherapy is about potentiality and change, psychotherapy is about learning and self-development and your collaboration or rapport formed with your psychotherapist are of essence to any psychotherapeutic encounter. You will know soon enough how psychotherapy can help because it is going to be your journey.
If you have any questions, please do get in touch by phone or email.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
If you are ready to get started, I would welcome an email to request that I make contact with you, at a time that is simple and convenient on both sides. We can look to schedule a time for a brief call to discuss availability, costs and an initial consultation session.
The initial session and sessions thereafter last 50 minutes, and cost £75.
The initial session is an assessment only, and the modality of practice must also be assessed during this session. The number of sessions/course of treatments I offer come in packages of 1, 6, 12, or 24 sessions. For long term therapy, this is ongoing depending from case to case.
