Simone Kaptur BA(Hons) Dip.Couns MBACP (Accred)
Please note: During our extraordinary and unprecedented time I am holding sessions online and by phone.
I am an accredited therapist with 25 + years experience of working in the field of counselling and 13 years in private practice.
I work with individuals and couples experiencing a wide range of issues such as:
Relationship and family difficulties, anxiety, stress, grief, depression, self esteem, identities, a sense of not belonging and with people who are dealing with the effects of abuse including emotional and psychological neglect.
I also work with people who want to explore and make sense of a general feeling/sense that something is just not quite right in their life.
If you think that counselling would be of benefit contact me to make an enquiry or to book an initial consultation where we can explore, in complete confidence, any problems that are troubling you. It is the opportunity for you to see if counselling is something that you want, either as a couple or for you as an individual.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a BA(Hons), a clinical Diploma and am currently awaiting my award of a Masters in psychotherapy.

My background is in the NHS where I worked for many years with a diverse range of people, family systems and cultures alongside family therapists, psychologists, physicians and social workers at The Royal Free NHS Trust Hospital, London.
