Mona Vaeremans, BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling, BSc (Hons) Psychology, UCKP
Life can feel overwhelming at times. As you have found this page, you have perhaps thought about therapy for a little while. I offer a friendly and relaxed environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings in confidence and without being judged. It is important to find a therapist that will work well with you so please get in touch.
Our first session will give us an opportunity to meet and talk about what is bothering you without any commitment. I offer short and long term counselling. I will initiate reviews on a regular basis so that we can discuss how things are going.
I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor with experience of dealing with many different psychological issues such as anxiety, depression and trauma. I have a special interest in trauma as I truly believe that any form of trauma (big or small) can have a significant impact on our behaviour and way of life.
In addition to my private practise, I am providing counselling at CARA (Centre of Action on Rape and Abuse) to support survivors of sexual abuse.
