- struggle to feel confident and relaxed when talking to people, and want to become aware of the dynamics at play in your social interactions?
- feel anxious, and have negative narratives in your head that make your mind work overtime, leaving you exhausted?
- find it hard to trust and to connect with others, but want to have meaningful relationships?
- feel that you are different, a misfit, weird, and want to feel like you belong?
- find it hard to say no to others and to set healthy boundaries?
- feel stuck, that something is missing in your life, and want to find more meaning and purpose?
Being human is not easy; we are, after all, quite complex beings, and this can make us feel lost at times in a labyrinth of unwanted thoughts and feelings. Our minds have evolved, and we are more conscious than our natural siblings, but we are not fully aware of the power that our unconscious mind has on us. Behind the conditioning, past challenges, and generational traumas that you might not even be aware you are carrying, hides the real you.
Hi, I’m Andreea, a counsellor and Reiki practitioner based in West London. I can guide you to see your struggles from a different perspective, and to explore the narratives that are hiding beind your anxiety, identity, low self-confidence, anger and sadness.
Accepting and loving yourself can help you gain the courage to Be Your True Self. Therapy can help you to discover, accept and love the whole of you, even the parts that might feel ugly, weird or unlovable. And as Lucille Ball said: “Love yourself first, and everything else falls into place.”
About me & how I work
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and, I adhere to their Framework. I have regular Supervision, I am fully insured and, I am committed to ongoing personal and professional development.
I use the Psychosynthesis model, which has a unique blend of psychology and undogmatic spirituality. It’s a transpersonal model, and it consists of talking therapy and creative techniques that can help you explore your challenges and your inner world. I see your challenges and struggles as something that is trying to emerge in your life and not as diseases that need curing. I work intuitively; so, depending on the situation, apart from talking therapy and creative techniques I might also use meditation and Reiki.
Like everyone else, I’m human. I’ve been through both wonderful and difficult experiences that have shaped who I am and how I see the world. I worked in Finance for ten years, until I decided to follow my passion for self-development and mental health, which is fuelled by my own experiences growing up, as I struggled with mental health issues myself. Personal therapy helped me to explore and fall in love with various parts of myself that felt awkward and unlovable; to become aware of the narratives in my life and how they affect my interactions with other people; to become more present and connected to my body, feelings, and mind; to learn how to deal with and tolerate the lows of life, not just to enjoy the ups. I would like to guide other humans who want to embark on their therapy journey.

Next step & fees
Our first session
Once you contact me, we will schedule an initial session. Finding the right therapist for you is important, and the first session gives us both the opportunity to find out if we are a good match. You can share a bit more about your struggles, your background, and your expectations of therapy. You can also ask any questions that you might have about me and how I work. By the end of the session, we can determine if I am the right therapist for you.
When we decide to start working together, we will have a written agreement in which you can find out more about the confidentiality and cancellation terms. I suggest a number of 6 weekly sessions; this will give you more time to see how you feel about our therapeutic relationship. After that, if you decide to continue therapy, we will do that in an open-ended contract.
£55 (50 min session)
£35 (50 min session)- students (online therapy only)
