WELCOME

Whether through an impulse search or a well thought out plan, I am really happy you have made it to my site - because Simona Therapy could be the first step towards finding and embracing your best self.

I am a Qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Trainee Psychotherapist working with adults (18+). I specialise in relational therapy within the Humanistic framework.

 

What this really means is that I use my innate ability and learnt skills to create a contained safe space for us to work together on building a trusting therapeutic relationship. This facilitates your growth, ultimately reaching the necessary level of clarity to best engage with your life and live it authentically.

- Simona

 

Starting your therapeutic journey can be a very daunting experience.

Doubts may creep in about:

- what therapy might involve;

- pouring your heart out to a stranger;

- finding the time or energy for sessions;

- what others might say if they found out you are seeing a therapist; or

- why you need to talk to someone when others seem fine on their own.

I am here to applaud you for coming this far. This might be one of the most courageous things you have done in your life. Fear and Ego may wish to keep you in the safety of their known territory. It takes guts to lay all your cards on the table, take an honest look at yourself and your life, your thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and explore how you might change your situation.

 

WHAT YOU MIGHT BE LOOKING FOR

It may be that you do not know where to begin. Or you do, and there is something, someone, or a situation that is blocking you.

 

Maybe you find yourself asking:

 

“Why me?”

“Who am I?”

“How did I get here?”

“Is this the rest of my life?”,

"Is this really happening to me", or

“How do I get where I want to be?”

 

Perhaps you or others have labelled you as down or depressed. You might be unsure about feeling a certain way, or not living the life you were meant to.

Whatever your needs are, therapy with me will be a process of self-discovery and growth aimed to rewrite potentially toxic or misconstrued life scripts (beliefs you have inherited from your family or society). I can support you to develop new skills to move towards becoming your best self.
