Teresa Solano Bsc Psy, Dip Coun, Reg. BACP
I have worked with people from different walks of life with different presentations and these include: Anxiety, generalised anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, phobias, bereavement, chronic illnesses, relationship issues.
I enter into a therapeutic relationship which is non-judgemental and deeply empathetic and I believe that each client has the inner resources they need to move towards growth and make changes they desire.
Through my own experience I have found that self-discovery and acceptance are very important to get the best out of life and to deal with life stressors.
I offer an initial assessment with you and there after a session on a weekly basis with an option to work short or long term depending of your needs.I can provide therapy in English and Spanish.
I abide by the code of ethics and practice of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a degree in Psychology which gives me insight in people's behaviours, how stress is handled and why some situations affect some people more than others.
The combination of Psychology and Person Centred counselling enables me to understand behaviours and have insight into problematic conduct, aiming to help the client to move towards change and their desired goals with therapy.
