Psychotherapy and Counselling in Richmond (English/Czech) MBACP, UKCP registered
Whatever your reasons to seek therapy, be it coming to terms with pain, loss, illness, loneliness or relationship problems, or if you simply feel stuck, anxious or frustrated in your life and perhaps are not sure why, it is my aim to help you make sense of things.
My name is Verka (also known as V) and I have been a practising counsellor/psychotherapist in Richmond/ Twickenham/ Kew/ South West London for the past 4 years. I am a qualified humanistic psychotherapist offering a confidential space to safely explore your thoughts and feelings. I combine different schools of psychotherapy and varied therapeutic tools to create a personalised approach for each client that is based on what we agree together as the most beneficial for your unique situation and specific requirements.
I can still remember how daunting it is to enter counselling and make the first contact, but I can assure you the benefits of psychotherapy truly can be life-changing. Your investment and dedication to your well-being as well as accessing help in resolving the challenges in your life that are making you feel unhappy or stuck will bring many positive outcomes. Be brave and give psychotherapeutic counselling a try.
My aim for you is to live your life more fully, in an authentic and congruent way, which allows you to feel more joy, less fear and where you start to believe in your ability to achieve, accept and change. I am convinced that this shift is possible at any age and stage in life, provided that we are open to the idea and are courageous enough to examine what's not working and how we might wish to do things differently.
In addition it is my belief that the therapeutic relationship with your psychotherapist can offer a unique experience in which you can become more self-aware, look at your relational patterns as they occur and have a safe place where it is okay to be fully yourself and feel heard, seen and accepted. These are the conditions in which counselling/psychotherapy can be the vehicle of change and offers support for clients in making the right choices.
I offer individual therapy on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
I can provide online therapy to suit your daily schedule and I also have some availability for in-person, face to face work in my therapy room in the heart of Richmond upon Thames. It is located opposite Richmond train station and conveniently also close to Twickenham, Kew, Mortlake, Petersham and Isleworth.
