Natalija Stevens, Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
My initial training was in an integrative and relational way of counselling that was complemented by further specialisation in Focusing Psychotherapy. Over the years this approach to therapy has allowed me to integrate transpersonal, mindfulness and focusing psychotherapy alongside some more classical approaches such as psychodynamics. These different theoretical traditions allow for a tailored approach to suit the individual. My goal is to facilitate the process of self exploration and self understanding.
Counselling is offered in an outdoor setting for those who feel that the natural environment is more suitable to their needs. Clients do not need to be super fit as this can be anything from a gentle walk to focusing on a particular part of Nature. All usual consideration around boundaries, confidentiality and ethics still stand as for any indoor counselling.
