MA, HCPC registered, EMDR Accredited
it can be helpful to speak with someone when life feels hard, overwhelming or disappointing. Natalia offers both short and long term support for anyone encountering difficulties or who wishes to work through any challenges they may be experiencing. Therapy can enhance a deeper understanding of self, relationships with others and our varying life situations. Her approach is to offer a safe and contained space for you to process your thoughts and feelings in a way that is manageable for you and to develop your inner resources by thinking together about what unfolds as sessions progress.
There is often not a typical session procedure as sessions are essentially client led. Together you will consider your specific hopes and goals that you wish to fulfil from the therapy. Many people find a mixture of therapeutic interventions helpful such as EMDR, art therapy, mindfulness and directive tools used for resource building. Art materials are available to use in the space, as sometimes it can be difficult to talk directly about things so communicating through art materials may be easier or more appropriate.
