Specialities

Integrative Counsellor specialising in areas of addiction and existential life questions (the deeper meaning of life) for adults. Personal Development Coach. I speak English, Russian & Serbo-Croatian.

A few words about myself

I am a fully qualified Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), working within their ethical standards. 

I believe that everyone, with the right kind of support, has the potential to master their life struggles or mental health problems, despite what a person is facing or how they may be feeling. 

I fully understand that different people have different needs so therefore I work in a way that best suits my clients and offer an integrative approach to counselling. Integrative counselling means that I am able to use a range of techniques from different modalities or theories in my work with clients. My approach has evolved to focus on Psychodynamic, Person-centred and Existential-Transpersonal theories as I believe these are best suited to my specialisms in the areas of addiction and existential life questions (the deeper meaning of life). I also believe that transference and counter-transference is very important, that is, how a client brings the past into a session and re-experiences it in the present.

Apart from my private practice, I work as a Recovery Practitioner (Substance Misuse Practitioner - drugs and alcohol) for the NHS working with adults of all ages, affected by a range of issues.

Counselling provides the time and space for you to share and explore whatever you wish to, in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. It may not be easy, but I will support you to explore whatever is troubling you at your own pace. I provide both short-term focused counselling as well as longer term therapy; and I offer counselling in three different languages: English, Russian and Serbo-Croatian.
