Veronica Toescu (UKCP registered, Registered Member BACP)
Hi. Welcome to my profile. I have been working in this field of talking therapy (Counselling & Psychotherapy) for the last 11 years and hold a Masters in Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapy from Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute, Nottingham endorsed by the University of Birmingham, Birmingham.
I have a Certificate in Focusing-Oriented Therapy from The London Focusing Institute, endorsed by The International Focusing Association, New York.
I am a UKCP registered and Registered Member BACP.
My work, at present, is mainly with adults (Age 18 onwards). It could be helpful to have initially an informal chat so feel free to call me.
In our work together we will create an environment of respect where you will find non-critical acceptance and the intention to facilitate your personal development and personal growth.
In the dialogue established during your therapy, the different psychological components (thoughts, emotion, behaviour, physical and spiritual presence) that determine a person to seek therapy are equally attended to. Establishing realistic goals are an on-going component of my work.
