Ronaldo Stroppa - BSc (Hons), Registered MBACP Psychotherapeutic Counsellor
After completing a BSc in Psychology at University of London, I furthered my post graduate training and qualified as a psychotherapeutic counsellor.
I offer counselling to clients from different backgrounds and cultures; working with individuals, couples and groups. I offer short or long term counselling.
I provide a confidential space where you can talk about things you feel are not going well. Together, we can explore what the challenges are and start to understand how they impact your life and your relationships, be they personal, professional or romantic relationships.
I am available on weekday evenings and practice in Ealing - my practice is located within walking distance of Ealing Broadway. There is free street parking nearby after 5pm.
What to expect in our first session?
The first session is an opportunity to meet up and start exploring the reasons that brought you to counselling.
In this session we can discuss how I work and what your expectations are.
I believe there is no such thing as a pre-determined number of sessions - I respect that each client is unique. Together we can work to establish how counselling can help you.
How does counselling work?
Counselling can help if you are feeling depressed or bereft, suffering from trauma, anxiety or stress, going through emotional or relational difficulties or maybe just looking at ways to move forward and live life to the full.
Talking about personal difficulties can be painful - in my practice I respect that and am guided by your pace.
My approach is based on Relational Transactional Analysis which builds a therapeutic relationship between client and therapist.
I offer support in understanding yourself and your behavior in relation to others.
Confidentiality, mutual respect and freedom from judgement are some of the values I believe to be important to counselling - I take these responsibilities seriously in my practice.
I am looking to start a small therapeutic group in Ealing in the second semester of this year. This would be a space to explore your thoughts, behaviours and feelings in a small group setting. Please contact me if you are interested in joining the group. The proposal is for the group to meet weekly for 90 minutes.
I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics and I am DBS checked.
I can offer counselling both in English and Portuguese.
