Chloe CosicIntegrative counsellor
Counselling or therapy can help us to discover not only the causes of our pain or what is no longer working for us, but also our resources, desires and goals. Sometimes it’s hard to manage difficult or traumatic events, contexts or relationships, both past and present. We might get stuck in habitual ways of thinking, feeling and acting. Whilst these were likely once important strategies for survival and coping, they may no longer best serve us. Emotional distress is common; whether it manifests as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, intense emotional reactions or feelings of disconnect.
Whatever brings you to therapy, my role as your therapist is to offer you a safe relationship and space to talk about anything you want, without judgement. I will give you my complete and respectful attention and will help you to explore and make meaning of your thoughts, feelings and experiences, both past and present.
Whilst it may feel counter-intuitive, our emotions, even if very difficult, can help us to reach a place of acceptance, self-understanding and growth. Together, we can get to a place where you are more in touch with yourself and are able to make more conscious decisions and changes. No matter what comes up, my intention is to stand alongside you through all of it.
Issues often worked with
Types of therapy
I charge £35 for the initial session and after that my fee is £70 per session. Each session is 50 minutes long. Having regular sessions is an important aspect of therapy and will help you to get the most out of it. If we decide to work together and depending on availability, we will pick a time that works and I will hold this slot for you with a view to us seeing each other once-weekly.
Training and qualifications
As an integrative therapist, I can draw on a range of psychotherapeutic approaches (including psychodynamic, humanistic or relational) which allows me to work flexibly with you. I am a BACP registered therapist with 5+ years of intensive training in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy at The Minster Centre. As well as private practice, I have been seeing clients for several years in various charities and counselling organisations.
