Counselling Sessions In London, Camden Following an initial meeting in London, Camden, Kings Cross, a regular weekly, open-ended therapy sessions will usually be agreed. Over time things can build up and for many areas in our life there is usually no quick fix, easily resolution and I don't pretend to offer these. Any pain that comes from deep inside may take time to be discovered and healed and lasting change takes time.
Counselling Training My counselling training has given me a broad counselling knowledge, including Humanistic, Psychospiritual, Transpersonal Psychosynthesis models and others. I also hold a psychodynamic context and am able to offer CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) counselling techniques if required. Yet besides all the training and theories, I learnt that the most profound connections and healing take place not through models, theories but through the value of experiences. My experience and training as a counsellor includes acknowledging multiple meanings, working creatively with a range of integrative counselling approaches and strategies. My psychotherapy training acknowledged and combined the physical, emotional, psychological, sexual, and spiritual aspects of each person helping me gain a broader understanding of myself and others.
My Continued Professional Development In Counselling I undertake continuing professional counselling development and training in order to enhance my counselling knowledge and experience, and be informed of advancement in the counselling field.
