Confidential Therapy & Counselling in North West London
Hi! I'm Divina.
I am born and raised in London and have always had a passion for wanting to pursue a career in counselling. Helping to support others has always been a desire of mine, since a young age.
After having studied Health and Social Care - the extended diplomas, I went on to get my degree at the University of Nottingham, where I studied a BA in Humanistic Counselling. The course I studied is accredited by the National Counselling Society and I am a registered member of the BACP. I have worked in special need schools, as a personal assistant for a CEO and as a counsellor for different organisations which has allowed me to develop effective communication skills, work ethically as well as professionally and manage a heavy workload successfully. These are all skills that I am able to transfer when working with clients on a therapeutic bases.
I work in a creative way, and work as a person-centred therapist by also using Gestalt methods and the humanistic philosophy. I offer a space which is non-judgemental, free and comfortable to all clients. I believe counselling helps people with their own self-awareness and growth - which is why the importance around a trustworthy, client and counsellor therapeutic relationship is key to me.
Having worked with a variety of different clients who present in a range of issues, I consider myself to be a confident, yet authentic character who uses the person-centred approach when working with clients. I have worked with clients who have had a diverse range of presenting issues such as eating disorders, depression, anxiety, loneliness, trauma, grief and loss, bereavement, daily challenges and who have experienced a form of abuse such as sexual, financial, physical and emotional abuse.
I have worked with children, young people and adults within organisations within the last few years.
