I had a wonderful experience and felt like I was surrounded by a warm glow. Ana is a great professional who made me feel at peace and I would recommend her to anybody.
I am an experienced humanistic integrative psychotherapist. I believe the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is the most important element of counselling. My main focus is to create a safe and confidential space based on trust and empathic understanding. I have been trained in a number of different approaches and I can adapt my style to my client’s individual personality and needs. The initial consultation is where you can decide if you feel comfortable working with me. I work with adults, young people, and couples.
I also provide a clinical supervision for qualified counsellors and students.
Reiki is a lying on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies in our bodies (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual). Some people compare Reiki to a river for its calming influence... For me Reiki is simply "love" which can be transmitted with healing energy by a Reiki Practitioner.
Do you suffer from anxiety, anger, stress or panic attacks? Maybe you need some help in giving up smoking or losing weight? Are you addicted to drugs or struggling with recovery process? I am here to help.
I am registered and accredited by British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their ethical framework of good practice.
Humanistic Integrative Counselling is an approach that systematically considers the whole person - mind, body and spirit. It recognises that the quality of the therapeutic relationship, rather than any one particular theoretical orientation, is the most important aspect of successful therapeutic work.
An integrative counsellor can work with each client to produce a unique therapy adapted to suit what that client wants and needs.
Integrative Counselling draws on mainstream theoretical perspectives, integrating knowledge and skills from different therapies.
The approaches I am able to incorporate into your therapy include; Person-Centred, Transactional Analysis (TA), Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Gestalt. The key component in counselling is the therapeutic relationship between client and counsellor.
I work in areas of addictions, anxiety, stress, loss and grief, depression, relationships, anger, bereavement, trauma, weight problems, low self-esteem, and abuse.
I started practising Reiki in August 2012. Even before always felt a lot of strong energy around me I did not understand and going into the Reiki training helped me to connect to that energy and use it to help others and myself. Reiki changed the way I look at the world today and seeing the positive effect it has on my clients it is nothing then a huge reward. I have been working at Drug & Alcohol Rehab providing Reiki for the clients with a very positive outcome and also it put a smile on faces of my friends and family. Reiki balances the energy in the body, gives inner peace, releases the tension, helps treating the illnesses and improves the life in general. "It's all love" as I first heard from my Master Reiki during my training and I totally agree with that.
I also offer 1:1 and small groups training into Reiki 1&2 level.
We are alive because life force is flowing through us. Life force flows within the physical body though pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura. Life force nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions. When this flow of life force is disrupted, it causes diminished function in one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.
The life force is responsive to thoughts and feelings. It becomes disrupted when we accept, either consciously or unconsciously, negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves. These negative thoughts and feelings attach themselves to the energy field and cause a disruption in the flow of life force. This diminishes the vital function of the organs and cells of the physical body.
Reiki heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached. This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away. In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy and natural way.
