Hello my name is Rada and I’m an integrative Counsellor / Psychotherapist. We all experience times in our life when we could benefit from some space to talk and find a way through a crossroads. I can offer a safe, warm and non-judgmental relationship whereby we can explore a way forward.
I am an experienced, fully qualified BACP registered and accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I work as part of a practice with a Couple Therapists (Relate). Additionally we will be launching a Family Therapy service within the near future.
I offer integrative therapy to adults with the aim of ensuring that I adapt to your unique and specific needs. Building a therapeutic relationship is the most important foundation to creating change and to achieve this I aim to demonstrate high levels of warmth, empathy and acceptance.
Your concerns are paramount and I focus on where your needs are, whether this is related to the present, past or future. I draw on a range of models such as: person centred, cognitive-behavioural & transpersonal therapies. I am also an Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) trained therapist; research suggests that this modality can be beneficial for trauma related events.
I am able to offer both short and long term work. It’s usually helpful to review our work after 6-sessions to ensure that we are meeting your needs appropriately.
I adhere to confidentiality and safeguarding policies. I also hold an up-to-date DBS/CRB check.
