About me

Hello, my name is Senia,

I know what it is like to be thinking about seeking professional help. It takes a lot of strength to admit that you need support. It needs immense bravery to open up and start working through your worries, difficult emotions and life complications. Getting help today is your first step towards a change that is meaningful to you, even though this may initially seem a very intimidating experience.

My aim as a counsellor is to build a trusting, safe relationship where thoughts and feelings can be shared without judgment. Honesty, trust and compassion are the three elements of a healing relationship. Being unconditionally accepted, understood and connected to others can have a profound effect on your health.

My approach is not medical or diagnostic-oriented. Rather it is kind, human, intuitive and respectful. I would like to make our online sessions a valuable experience for you where you can feel secure and grounded.

I am a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor and a Registered Member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy). This means that I am accountable, committed to the values of high-quality service and work ethically towards your best benefits. Additionally, I completed Association of Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO, UK) approved training, enabling me to provide effective therapy online and via telephone.

My practice is working as an integrative counsellor with a humanistic approach. One of my main methods is the IFS-informed therapy. I believe that each of us is an individual and unique in our own right. The therapy I offer reflects upon this and I will tailor our sessions to your needs. I will work in partnership with you at your own pace, allowing you the time to express yourself freely within the session.

I am a genuine, warm, empathetic and caring therapist. I look at a person as a whole, considering their emotional, physical, mental health and social environment. To ensure full understanding I will be seeking your feedback to validate that your expectations are met whilst we work together. I will be listening to you carefully without directing you and treating you with kindness and respect for your choices.

I have had the opportunity to live and study internationally within different cultures. As a result, I relate to people from varying backgrounds and values with sincere empathy and acceptance. I offer profound sensitivity to issues of diversity, race and cultural integration. I have a strong value within me to be truthful and approachable and I am also very open-minded.

I have worked with many clients over five years, offering help to those suffering from anxiety, depression, stress, emotional dysregulation, relationship problems, co-dependency, sexuality, divorce, self-esteem, loss and bereavement, problems raised by addiction and abuse and much more. My expertise includes working with trauma-orientated issues, where I utilise different modalities to treat the outcomes of developmental trauma, adverse childhood experiences, sexual abuse, life-threatening accidents and injuries or other traumatic events.

I aim to support you in becoming your true self and be able to develop your fullest potential without fear and anxiety. I am here to help empower you to make your own decisions, and to encourage finding a way to live a better, healthier, happier life.

I look forward to working with you!

Senia’s grace in being able to cut to the heart of the matter, so to speak, is unmatched. I always feel safe, seen and heard with her, yet also feel that she pushes me to confront parts of myself that might be hard for me to see on my own. I’ve had a wonderful experience with her and highly recommend her services to anyone.
