Nujoji Calvocoressi MA, PG.Dip, UKCP (Reg), MBACP
I am passionate about my work and firmly believe that counselling and psychotherapy can bring about positive change to people’s lives. It is not uncommon to feel lost or confused from time to time, or to experience symptoms, unhelpful behaviours or a lack of confidence. These are things that we can all experience.
It is my experience and belief that not only can therapy help us make sense of and heal the debris of the past, but also bring about the clarity and freedom to experience life differently and the opportunity to reach our full potential.
It is not uncommon to feel hesitant or unsure about seeking help. In our initial session there is an opportunity for us to meet each other and explore whether therapy might be helpful to you. There is no commitment to ongoing work.
If you decide you would like to continue, we will agree regular days and times to meet on an ongoing basis. The establishment of regular sessions is important in order to facilitate, and give momentum to the therapeutic process. Many people find that regular meetings provide a sense of safety and continuity whilst they are working on their emotional difficulties.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have trained for four years at The Minster Centre in London, I obtained a Graduate Diploma in Counselling, Advanced Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
I have been trained in integrative therapy, this is a progressive form of therapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client. By combining elements drawn from different schools of psychological theory and research, integrative therapy becomes a flexible and inclusive approach to understanding.
I have experience working one to one with individual clients in private practice as well as in a higher education setting. I also have experience working with offenders in the secure estate who engage in violent, sexually harmful and criminal behaviour.
I am a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and adhere to their Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct.

Regular weekly sessions are of fifty minutes duration, and are charged at £60.00 per session.
All therapy sessions are chargeable including the initial consultation. Some therapists offer a reduced fee or initial consultation at no charge. I feel the first session is an important part of the work and I provide the same level of service during that session as all others so my charges reflect this.
It is important to choose a therapist you can work with and trust. The better the relationship between you and your therapist, the more you are likely to benefit from therapy.
What you say will be treated with respect and compassion. Therapy takes place in a private and confidential setting where we can explore thoughts and feelings in a context different to most every-day settings. It is a dedicated time set aside by you and me. The setting and regularity of our meetings as well as our therapeutic relationship will be the vessel within which you will be free to express whatever is on your mind.
