Accredited integrative individual and couple therapist Natasha Micharina
My main philosophy and approach centre around compassionate care and evidence-based practice. As no one person is the same, I use a variety of techniques and modalities in order to create a unique, bespoke therapy that resonates fully with your needs, goals, and what is meaningful to you.
I have experience in and can offer therapy for following mental health presentations - low mood, anxiety, PTSD, complex trauma, chronic pain management, emotion regulation, OCD, interpersonal difficulties, self-esteem, grief, stress, sexual dysfunction, relationships and couple dynamics to name a few.
I also offer therapy in Russian and Swedish.
Please note that I do not offer telephone sessions unless previously agreed.
