Hello! I am Diana.
I am a qualified Psychosynthesis Counsellor and a certified Transformational Coach. I am trained to work with clients psychotherapeutically and supporting them in overcoming emotional challenges within their lives. I have been in private practice for almost 10 years.
I offer a safe and confidential space for you to tell your story, your fears and anxieties and explore your thoughts, feelings and needs.
I originally trained as a 'State Approved Educator' and worked extensively with children and parents in a private setting.
In this role I was able to gather great knowledge and experience about child development and the importance of 'good enough' parenting and the impact it has on the quality of our later life. It supports me in being with you if you have developmental traumatic experiences.
Since my qualification as a Counsellor at the Institute of Psychosynthesis in 2011 I have continued my education and completed various courses in Trauma Healing and Somatic Experiencing with Babette Rothschild and Attachment Training with Dr. Diane Poole Heller and Peter Levine.
In addition, I studied 'Archetypal Psychology, Stories and Myths' with Clarissa Pinkola Estes in Colorado since 2015.
I am a Member of the BACP and follow the ICF guidelines for Coaching.
As your therapist I listen to you deeply and offer you a safe space to tell your story to explore and deepen your understanding of your thoughts, feelings, needs and finding a context for any difficulties you may be experience.
I will support you with compassionate attention and explore what is troubling you with understanding, accepting and overcoming emotional issues, relationship problems or concerns which can include unprocessed trauma from childhood at this moment in time.
Together, we build a trusting relationship to help you identify and make sense of important personal issues. We then look for ways to resolve and transform self-destructive patterns to help you live a more fulfilling life in the present and future.
I look forward to our journey together where I walk alongside you and support you in connecting to your whole Self living a wholehearted life.
