Counselling Covent Garden - London
Do you sometimes feel that nobody understands you? Do you find it difficult to let others know how you feel? Are you suffering in silence, too embarrassed or afraid to let anyone know what is really going on in your life?
My name is Sylvia, I am an experienced counsellor and therapist. I offer a counselling service where you will be able to express how you feel in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment.
If you are struggling with a specific issue or just need to be heard and understood then I can help. I am experienced in working with a range of different clients from diverse cultures or backgrounds.
I can help you understand your feelings, thoughts and physical symptoms and we will work together to help you feel better. I will always respect your objectives and goals and choose an approach that is most appropriate.
Types of counselling and therapy
I offer different types of counselling and therapy, depending on the issue that you would like to work on and what you would like to achieve.
- Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a short-term therapy effective in treating a range of problems, such as feelings of anxiety and depression, self-esteem issues, panic attacks, OCD.
- Psychodynamic counselling is helpful in dealing with a range of issues that you may be facing, including: abuse, anger management, coping with divorce, facing redundancy, pre-marriage problems, relationship issues, sexual difficulties.
Your first session will be an opportunity for you to let me know what you want to achieve from counselling. We will also get to know each other so that you can feel confident that we can work together.
I am trained in both Psychodynamic Counselling and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy at Birkbeck College - University of London, and I also have a degree in Psychology.
I have had a diverse career helping others, working in Social Services, Education, Criminal Justice and Housing. I am also an experienced Trainer.
