I am a BACP Accredited counsellor and Certified Cyber Therapist offering counselling to adults, children and young people.
I’ve been a therapist for 13 years and have worked in a variety of settings and services for adults, children and young people. I’ve worked with adults for a mental health charity, Employee Assistance Programmes, Private Health Insurance Providers and schools. I am a registered provider for Bupa, Aviva, AXA and Vitality Health.
I’ve worked in primary and secondary schools and often see children and young people who are on CAMHS waiting lists. I’m a preferred provider with the Local Authority providing counselling to Looked After Children in foster care and semi-independent living.
I have a particular interest in trauma and am trained in EMDR with adults, young people and children. I am also trained in the Flash Technique. Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a powerful therapy designed to help people recover from traumatic events in their lives. EMDR is recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
Life can have times of challenge. I am here to provide a supportive place for you to build your resilience and discover the resources that may feel hidden within yourself.
To feel comfortable to be creative and to be able to explore, I know that you need to feel secure and safe with me. Building trust can take time, but it is the foundation of a ‘good enough’ relationship in therapy. I work to ensure your security online as I am a trained online therapist, and I also train other psychotherapists and counsellors to work securely online.
I specialise in the following areas:
- Grief and loss
- Children and Young People
- Anxiety and Depression
- Neurological Diversity, including Autism Spectrum Conditions such as Asperger’s
- Developing resources for resilience, including Trauma-sensitive mindfulness practices
I also train therapists to work online with The Academy and am the Vice-Principal of the Academy for Online Counselling and Therapy, AOCT. I really enjoy training other therapists to work securely online and for them to discover their creativity in the online setting.
I am also a Director with responsibility for Children and Young People for the Board of Directors of the Professional body, The Association for Counsellors and Therapists Online, ACTO.
My professional body is the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP membership number 00682449)
Counsellor/Psychotherapist based in Singapore (S.E Asia). Cross-cultural, young people, family specialist. Time-limited counselling or long-term therapy. Online and in-person service. Holistic mental wellness support.
I am a qualified psychologist and BACP Accredited Counsellor trained in France and United Kingdom. My approach is integrative and combines humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural elements depending on your needs and circumstances.
I have been working in both private practice and institutional setting as a psychologist and counsellor since 2008. Having lived, studied and worked in Paris and London for 10 years, I am very familiar with a variety of different cultures and backgrounds. I am used to working in multicultural settings and I am aware of the importance of empathy and sensitivity for cultures, customs and religions other than my own. I returned to Belgrade because I wanted to share my skills and experience in my home country.
The clients I have worked with suffered from a variety of issues including self-esteem issues,
depression, bereavement and loss, phobias, abuse, panic attacks, anxiety etc.
My aim is to provide you with a safe, confidential and judgment-free space to explore your issues and make your daily life and functioning easier. I want to build a trusting relationship with you where we can reflect on your self-awareness and ways of relating to yourself and others. I work in the English and Serbian languages, either in person, in my Belgrade office, or online, wherever you are.

I focus on the healing of inner systems through Self-leadership. The defences you have built around your vulnerability have served you to survive. Connecting to your inner parts and processes in a creative and caring dialogue brings awareness of who you really are and—finally—also healing. This is the essence of what is called Internal Family Systems Therapy; but it is also the core of Gabor Maté’s Compassionate Inquiry. I would like to facilitate this inner process. In the first video session we would try to find out if we can work with each other, if online counselling is the right way for you and how we can proceed. And we take it from there…

In an ideal world, we would have someone to talk to within our family or support network, but sometimes we don't feel that we can because we don't want to hurt their feelings or face their reactions. Counselling fills this gap and is a way to express how you really think and feel in a respectful, warm, safe and non-judgemental environment, with someone who is impartial and not emotionally involved.
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor which means that I use different models (including CBT), inter-twining them and tailoring them to fit your needs. This gives us the opportunity to explore how life is for you, how you feel about it and how you react during certain situations, all with the aim of finding solutions that work for you.
If you are 18 or over, I can help with a variety of issues, including:- Anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, low self esteem and confidence, anger management, trauma (including PTSD), relationship issues, health related issues and work related issues (including bullying in the workplace).
To ensure that I work within your best interests at all times and working to code of ethics and good practice, I am a member of the governing body, BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists). I also attend regular training days keeping my skills and knowledge up-to-date so that I can help you in the best way.
I offer a free half hour initial consultation, without obligation, giving us the opportunity discuss how counselling may help you.

I am an HCPC registered Art Therapist also trained to work online and face to face with adults and children as well as a member of BACP and a Fellow of the RSA. I have experience working with adults in the community for the NHS as well as voluntary work with charities and with children in primary schools.
Sessions and treatment are planned to meet your individual emotional, therapeutic and basic ‘being’ needs before working on any life experiences or difficulties.
What does meeting being needs look like?
Ways to regulate emotions – to relax, feel calm and self sooth
Ways to keep and feel safe
The experience of being with another, being heard.
Once safety, trust are established we can look to process experiences and difficulties you may be facing.
I offer talking therapy and welcome adults facing a wide variety of difficulties in their life.
I an Integrative which means that I am trained to use different psychological approached dependent on the needs of individuals or couples. I often use a combination of psychodynamic, systemic therapy and incorporate mindfulness and positive psychology.
People can benefit from counselling for many reasons; to deal with thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be causing distress; for support in times of difficulty; or to seek greater self-awareness and fulfilment in life, enabling growth and deeper understanding.
It is not always easy to speak to friends or family about difficult or personal issues and it can help to speak to a counsellor who will not judge you or tell you what to do. Counselling can give you the opportunity to be heard, to enable you to make your own decisions, in a supportive and confidential environment.
If you think counselling could help you, please do get in touch and we can arrange an initial appointment to see how we can work together.
I practice from a humanistic integrative approach which means that I use theories and techniques from various psychotherapeutic perspectives. I also use a relational analytic approach which uses the relationship between therapist and client to explore and deepen the work. We will initially discuss the reasons for you seeking therapy and if we are happy to proceed, we will arrange an initial session in which you will have the opportunity to find out if you think counselling could help you and if so, we will work towards an agreed plan for our therapy.
It is usual to plan for six or twelve sessions, with regular reviews to assess how the therapy is going and we can add or reduce the number at any time. There is no obligation to continue and you may finish therapy at any stage, although it is beneficial to work towards a planned ending. Sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually held at the same time each week, although fortnightly sessions are also available.
I have a Masters degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Advance Clinical Practice), [...]
‘In the waves of change we find our true direction’.
At the points in our lives when we feel like we are surrounded by change, we have an opportunity to remake ourselves. We can choose which parts we wish to take with us to build our future and which we no longer need. Whether change is imposed on us from the outside or it bubbles up from within us, it can leave us feeling out of control and stuck, unsure of what to do next. Whatever the feelings are that you are experiencing having a safe space to explore them and begin to make sense of what happens next can help you to take back control and choose your direction of travel.
I can offer you a place to be curious about what changes are possible for you, to explore your past and present so you can make choices about your future. As an integrative counsellor I am able to draw on a number of therapeutic approaches and we will work collaboratively to find out how I can best support you.
Because I know that counselling works best when you find the right person, I offer a free 20 minute telephone consultation, so you can check if I’m the right person for you. Please contact me by email or phone with your availability and I will get back to you in 48 hours. More information about me is available on my website www.curiosityspot.co.uk
