Ciala MyersIntegrative counsellor
When things become difficult or overwhelming it can be useful to get emotional support and talk to someone. We might need another person to help us make sense of our experiences so we can move through or change them. We might be feeling anxious, depressed, lost or stuck. We might realise our past is catching up with us. We might not know what the problem is, but our usual ways of coping don't seem to be up to the task and we can no longer ignore that something feels wrong. Whatever you are going through right now, you don't have to deal with it alone.
It's not always an option to sort things out with family or friends. Maybe it feels too personal, or you want someone impartial to help you with perspective . Maybe you have noticed unhelpful patterns, beliefs or narratives about yourself or your relationships. This is where therapy can help.
I am a qualified counsellor and therapist based in Central London and North London. I also offer online sessions.
As an integrative therapist, I draw from a range of approaches, including person-centred, humanistic, psychodynamic and relational psychotherapy. The way I work depends on you and your needs, as each person is different. I offer a safe space where you can feel seen and heard as we explore together whatever is troubling you. My style is warm, empathic, authentic and non-judgmental. I aim to help you heal, grow and make the changes you want to see in your life.
A little about me... I am passionate about helping people. Before becoming a therapist, I worked for many years as a solicitor in Australia and in the City of London at law firms and in finance and media. I have been a client too so understand what it's like from both sides. I also know from personal experience how rewarding and transformative therapy can be.
I know it can be hard to ask for help and reaching out can be daunting. But by looking for a therapist you've already taken the first step by being willing to consider help and honouring the part of you that is ready for change. Even if you have mixed feelings about it, I encourage you to get in touch by phone or email. You are welcome to leave me a voicemail message and I will come back to you as soon as I can. I offer a free 20 minute initial consultation online where we can meet and see if we might work well together.
