Hi, I'm Candy, a qualified integrative counsellor based in London.
I am very interested in difference and diversity; the needs and goals of each of my clients are important to me, and therefore, I offer a unique and tailored counselling service.
I integrate diversity, equality, and inclusion in my clinical work by creating a calm and non-judgmental environment where you are guided to explore freely. I will listen to you and help you have insight into your thoughts and feelings. I will support you with your needs, enabling you to make positive decisions about your life.
Before embarking on a career in counselling, I worked in the fashion industry in Milan as both a designer and lecturer/tutor and later ran my own retail business. I understand what it feels like to be under pressure in an intensively demanding and challenging environment and how that can affect your self-esteem and self-confidence; it can create anxiety and depression, the experience of isolation, loneliness, and stress.
As well as working with private adult clients, I also work with adolescents aged 13 - 17. I collaborate with ADIRA (a survivor-led mental health & well-being organisation - supporting black people with mental health issues). I have experience working with patients at a General Practice surgery for the NHS counselling service and with students and staff at ALRA's (Academy of Live & Recorded Arts).
I love to help people in my life to feel good, confident about themselves and voice themselves. In the same way, I am driven to help my clients find their lost passion and motivation by supporting them in exploring themselves.
The integrative approach (a combination of Person-Centred and Psychodynamic theories) I employ puts the client at the centre of the therapy. The client is encouraged and gently guided to express their experiences in their own time and in their own way, leading to inner discovery.
Emphasis is placed on giving time to reflect upon different aspects of the issues raised and identified through the exploration of the past and, importantly, the connection between the past and the present.
I believe that changing your perspective often enables a passion for life to return and, with it, goals accomplished and aspirations realised.
