About me

Hello, I’m Gergana. I am licensed in the UK with 13 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with existential and relationship issues, career difficulties, depression. I have spent the most recent years focussing on researching creative arts interventions and working with clients from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, using creative psychotherapy and emotion focused talking therapy. It is my deeply held belief that when offered a warm, caring, and non-judgemental environment we all have the capacity for growth, healing, and emotional wellbeing. It is my vocation to be of help to those experiencing emotional distress, for whatever reason. Sometimes words are not enough, and sometimes you need to talk. I can support you in finding different ways to express, explore, and understand how you feel. I will be guided by what you need from a therapeutic relationship, and I will respond with care, kindness and creativity. I bring these same things to my work as a therapist, and as a supervisor. I offer a way of working that recognises how important it is to form a trusting and respectful relationship. I can offer different ways to help you explore what feels important or perhaps challenging for you. At its heart is the knowledge that healing and change comes from learning how to feel safe in expressing emotions. If this combination meets your needs then I look forward to hearing from you.

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Gergana Ganeva. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Very concise in helping me to both reflect on my life, and rediscover my internal core values and measure them up against a long-term relationship injury. Also provided a safe space to deeply consider new roads vs the ones I had established over 26 years with my current partner and supporting me through my redevelopment of love in ways that hope to prevent future crisis.

Over the past three sessions with Dr. Ganeva, I have experienced a profound sense of relief and progress in confronting my vulnerabilities. From the outset, Dr. Ganeva exudes a warmth and empathy that instantly puts me at ease, creating an environment where I feel safe to explore my emotions and challenges.

One of Dr. Ganeva's most remarkable qualities is her ability to actively listen without judgment. She doesn't just hear my words; she truly understands the underlying emotions and experiences behind them. This level of understanding has allowed me to open up in ways I never thought possible, breaking down barriers that I had previously struggled to overcome.

Moreover, Dr. Ganeva possesses a remarkable knack for asking insightful questions that prompt deep introspection. Through her guidance, I have been able to gain a better understanding of myself, my thought patterns, and the root causes of my vulnerabilities. Each session feels like a journey of self-discovery, with Dr. Ganeva as my trusted guide.

Gergana is a kind, caring and non-judgmental person. She asks great questions and I feel that she's helping me to understand myself more. She gave me some great insights that made me shift my perspectives and gain new awareness. I love talking to her.

Gergana is wonderful. She is incredibly kind, professional, and provides considerations in diverse ways, like questions, metaphors, spiritual references. Even after just one discussion, I felt a lightening of my anxieties. Cannot recommend her strongly enough.
