Rizwana Virdee-BACP Reg
Specialising in Addiction, Trauma, Anxiety, Relationships, attachment and intimacy. I bring together a powerful Integrated EMDR approach using Hypno-therapeutic guided imagery to help uncover and explore repeated patterns, mental traffic and charged memories which clears your path to move forward in life and make change more manageable.
I offer a safe and confidential space in a non-judgmental environment. I offer counselling on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period for singles, individuals in a relationship, couples and groups.
Working collaboratively, counselling can offer an increase in the ability to be more present in the moment, resulting in more clarity and greater discernment. It also increases self-awareness, resulting in the ability to be more deliberate which can help develop skills and the ability to manage the mind and emotions. Overall, counselling supports you to become more fully self-expressed, resulting in more authentic and empowering relationships.
Having had a successful 17 years of working with people and their relational problems across a wide range of difficulties, I feel confident in addressing any issues my clients bring.
My primary role is to help you improve your responses to life without violating your core values or deeply held principles.
The quality of the relationship between us is central to a successful outcome. You need to feel trust in order to be able to work in a genuine, collaborative way. To contact me, either call me on 07956 466 393 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
My practice is within easy reach of Hampton, Richmond, Twickenham, Hounslow, Feltham,Teddington, Kingston, Kew and surrounding areas of Surrey, Middlesex and West London.
