About me

Following the most recent government guidelines about coronavirus advising social distancing, I now offer phone or online sessions.

I work with people who, at some point in their life, find it difficult to cope on their own with problems they encounter in living. I offer both time-limited and open-ended therapy, depending on the concerns that bring you to counselling. These may vary in nature and intensity and can be experienced as anxiety, relationship or family issues, panic, feeling sad, confused or depressed. My primary concern in therapy is to create a warm and respectful relationship that would help you to feel safe to express your concerns as openly as you can. I do not diagnose, appraise or judge. Rather, I try to understand the story you tell about your problems so that we can find new ways of understanding and coping with difficulties and distress. My approach is informed by various bodies of therapeutic knowledge, all of which emphasise the importance of collaborative work towards achieving greater clarity about your experiences, values and what you are prepared to do to live a more meaningful and satisfying life.

With my former academic interest in social anthropology/cultural studies and my personal experience of living in different cultures, I developed a keen interest in how people negotiate their complex feeling of belonging and reshape their sense of identity. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural background, and I offer therapy in English as well as in Serbian, Bosnian or Croatian.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of having therapy with me, get in touch by email (nevena.curcic.18@gmail.com) or phone (07910 56 96 06) so that we can arrange our initial session.

Member organisations

BACP

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

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Emotional abuse
Cultural identity issues
Relationship problems

I need to add that I do not believe that diagnostic categories are always helpful. I am interested in working with people experiencing difficulties regardless of whether they are able or not to put a name to the type of difficulty they feel.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
