Reeta Kauppinen BA Hons: MA: Dip: Adv Dip: MBACP
I am a fully qualified and experienced BACP registered psychotherapy and counselling practitioner in individual therapy with extensive knowledge and experience working with adults experiencing depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and crises.
Counselling & Psychotherapy may be able to help if you are:
- Not feeling good about life at the moment and you don't understand why
- Suffering from stress, anxiety, panic attacks, depression or finding it hard to cope
- Having difficulties within personal or family relationships
- Having problems adjusting to change
- Facing a problem that is hard to talk about or resolve
- Experiencing any kind of loss, bereavement or trauma
I provide a calm space to explore what may be contributing to your current difficulties. I offer you an opportunity to gain another perspective and explore new options and ways of managing your issues.
The emphasis is on people developing the skills to be self-reflective, increase understanding of their personal beliefs and values, aid psychological and emotional maturity and learn how to cope with the challenges of life more effectively, by accepting what cannot be changed and addressing what can be. My philosophical approach has a focus on relationships people have with themselves, others and life in general.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over fifteen years of experience working with vulnerable adults with variety of mental health conditions and diagnosis. I managed a welfare project for the NHS and for the Mind in Hackney, providing service to psychiatric wards as well for clients using the community mental health teams.

I have been working in 'private practice' as a counsellor for five years and in that time have worked with a large variety of people with different issues such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, various personality disorders, hearing voices and attachment related issues.
