Rony Abou Daher - MBACP Psychotherapist in South Croydon
Need to talk? I’m a good listener…
At times, you may feel sad, low, anxious and overwhelmed. You may feel you are battling alone – but you don’t have to anymore. Therapy can help.
A safe, respectful and non-judgmental space is ready for you. I will listen attentively while you freely express your emotions and thoughts. As a result, you can gain a deeper understanding of your problems and their cause, find new ways and strategies in coping or facing life’s challenges and find and use the strength that exists within you.
A little about me:
My practice stems out of a deep desire and genuine interest to help people feel happier, fulfilled, self-confident, empowered and more and more successful.
I have 12 years of experience in working with adults, adolescents, couples and families (family issues) from a range of backgrounds and cultures.
With over 16 years of study and research, I will provide you with a personalized approach that helps you discover your deeper needs and reach your personal goals. I have extensive experience in working with people to help them gain success and realize their full talent and potential.
As a BACP registered member, I work under very high ethical standards, follow CPD programs, and my work is supervised by the vice president of the World Council for Psychotherapy (WCP).
I am able to provide psychotherapy sessions in English, French and Arabic.
You are welcome to contact me for a FREE initial consultation, where you will have the opportunity to express yourself freely in a warm, safe and confidential environment. Together we will explore any current issues that need attention and we will determine accordingly which therapeutic plan best suits you. I will be more the happy to answer any questions in relation to your tailor-made therapy plan, in order for you to have a clear idea of what to expect from our work together.
