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 work related stress and anxiety, and relationship issues.
Work Related Issues
In todays fast paced corporate world life is hectic and can, at times, seem overwhelming, making it difficult to find peace. Constantly high levels of work related stress and anxiety affect performance, confidence and relationships and, ultimately, our own physical and emotional health. I work with clients to manage their stress, empowering them to overcome their workplace issues and regain control of their professional and personal lives - and so achieve a rewarding work/life balance.
I provide a range of coaching services including Career, Business and Personal Development. Through exploration and motivation I guide clients to address their specific issues in line with their own interests and values, needs and circumstances, to achieve personal and professional change and evolution. You will be able to identify your strengths, overcome your challenges and clarify your goals in order to realise your full potential.
So, if you are feeling stuck, struggling with a specific issue, feeling unfulfilled or ready to do something else and know that you are capable of so much more, I can work with you in a safe, supportive way to help you discover new perspectives and clarity about your future direction.
I also offer individual and couples counselling to people who are experiencing relationship issues. Often life events or personal issues can make relationships difficult places to be and undermine happiness. Counselling provides the time and space for you to share and explore whatever you wish to, in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment and find a way forward. It may not be easy, but I will support you to explore whatever is troubling you at your own pace.
Addiction Recovery Support
Whilst working for the NHS, I was a Recovery Practitioner (Substance Misuse Practitioner - drugs and alcohol) working with adults of all ages, affected by a range of addiction issues. In this context I am able to support individuals, who have already addressed their addiction, to maintain their sobriety and recovery.
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.
