Monica Balggan MBACP Reg.
My aim is to offer you emotional support in a safe and confidential environment, where you can share your worries and concerns about situations or issues that you may be currently facing. I am primarily an integrative counsellor which means that I use a range of therapeutic approaches to meet your individual needs, but I also like to work creatively using art, sand tray, paint, writing and drawing along with mindful exercises and relaxation techniques as I believe that creativity provides a language to the emotions that may otherwise be difficult to find.
My practice is based in Hounslow and Twickenham in Southwest London. I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics.
I offer face to face counselling in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment and can offer help and support for depression, anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, feeling sad, PTSD, panic, stress, health anxiety, social anxiety, anger, family issues, bereavement, loss, grief, betrayal, relationship difficulties, work issues, low confidence, self esteem and various other issues.
The First Step
It can sometimes be difficult to understand and talk about how we are feeling about something. On top of that, to contact a counsellor about any issues that may feel private, sensitive or disturbing can feel very daunting.
Taking the first step to make contact requires courage at a time when you may feel anything but courageous. When you feel at your weakest moment and perhaps feel like doing nothing, that's when you most need to do something.
Whether the issues feel small or big, if they are current or from the past, counselling can help you gain insights into the problems and find new ways to move on.
What happens at the Initial meeting?
When you make contact we can have an initial conversation about what has brought you to counselling and outline any issues that you may be facing at the moment. I can also answer any questions you may have about counselling or how I work.
If you decide you would like to book up sessions, we can discuss booking an initial six sessions. It may be that at the end of six weeks (or less), you feel you no longer require support or perhaps further open ended work is needed. I respect your autonomy at all times.
Please contact me on 07505098188 via text or call. If I am unable to answer your call then please leave a brief message with your name and number on voicemail and I will get back to you within 24 hours.
