Vjosa Rizaj, BSc, MA, MBACP
Hi, I am Vjosa, a qualified Counsellor, Psychotherapist, & a Consultant in Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
What I offer:
I offer a safe, empathetic, non-judgmental space where we will work together confidentially. I am committed to providing safe, professional practice to my clients and help them achieve their expected outcomes of therapy. I offer different counselling services to individuals and groups. Alongside my counselling and psychotherapy, I deliver workshops and training on domestic violence and sexual abuse to organisations and professionals.
I am an integrative practitioner, meaning I am experienced in working in various therapeutic ways. I particularly lean towards the Psychodynamic approach which focuses on the unconscious processes and believes that they are manifested in a person’s behaviour. Psychodynamic therapy looks at one's childhood and early relationships as it believes these influences one's present behaviour and current relationships. I also work with other approaches such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Humanistic Therapy and Person-centered therapy. I treat each client as a unique individual and therefore adapt the therapy to their needs in a way that is best suited to them.
I offer a free telephone consultation where we can find out more about each other. This will allow you to see if I am the right therapist for you and also allow me to learn a little about you and understand why you are seeking therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have experience working therapeutically with a variety of presenting issues in different clinical settings, such as specialist NHS services, community counselling services, educational settings and my private practice. Additionally, I also attend regular CPD (continual professional development) events to ensure my skills are current and up to date.
I hold two Masters, one in Counselling and the second in Understanding Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse. I also hold an Undergraduate BSc in Psychology and Counselling. Furthermore, I have completed various short courses in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Person-Centred Therapy and Humanistic Therapy.
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.
