Hello and a warm welcome. My name is Roxana and I am an empathic and friendly counsellor.
I run a private practice in SL1 and SL5 area. My special interest and experience includes working with displaced people and finding identity in a foreign country and females victims of domestic violence. I also have experience of working with bereavement and loss (terminal illness and careers), misscarriage, stillbirth and work place challenges (stress and relationships).
I have a Psychology degree from Romania and graduated in 2007 and since then I've gained experience of working as a therapist and psychologist with a range of mental health services including schools and psychiatric units in hospitals. My clients were children and adults of all ages, coming from different backgrounds.
I moved to the UK in 2009 and qualified as an integrative counsellor in 2015. I've continued my career within the private sector and for various organisations offering emotional support.
My belief is that working together, we can find unhelpful patterns of behaviour and explore how thoughts and feelings attached to them, influence actions. I further believe that setting healthy boundaries and goals is the key to good relationships and rebuilding self-esteem. I will support you on your journey to self-awareness and growth by offering you acceptance and honesty.
Please feel free to contact me and make enquiries.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
