About me

Hi, I am Vjosa,  Qualified Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Consultant in Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse. Face to face, online and telephone counselling.

As an integrative practitioner, I am experienced in working in various therapeutic ways. I lean towards the Psychodynamic approach, focusing on the unconscious processes and belief 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.

Getting started.

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.

I provide 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 welcome any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). 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.

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.

Additionally, I also attend regular CPD (continual professional development) events to ensure my skills are current and up to date.

Member organisations


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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

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.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
