Dania AkondoIntegrative psychotherapist
My vision is to empower clients and help them achieve inner peace.
I am a qualified Croydon psychotherapist and counsellor, who adheres to the BACP ethical framework. I have a particular interest in issues of racism and relational patterns in adults who have experienced trauma.
Together, we can explore past life events to gain a better understanding of what might have gone wrong. I can help you implement strategies and techniques in your day- to-day life in order to:
- enhance your quality of life;
- rid yourself of maladaptive behaviours and/or negative thinking patterns;
- ameliorate your communication skills;
- ensure that you value your needs and/or meet your partner's;
- mend your relationship after an affair;
- navigate conflict in a relationship.
In a safe and non-judgmental environment, we can discuss and explore issues which may be hindering your happiness.
I provide both short and long term psychotherapy/counselling, via telephone, Skype, IM or face-to-face. My approach is integrative, an amalgamation of different techniques such as CBT, Person-Centred and Psychodynamic. Together we can determine which approach/approaches best suit your needs.
I recognise the difficulty of identifying and expressing difficult emotions in a foreign language, hence my willingness to provide therapy in Italian or French if necessary.
I also run an online group for people of colour who have experienced abandonment, neglect, emotional abuse, racial abuse, bullying and rejection during childhood. In the group, we will aim to heal your inner child and help you find inner peace. This will be a safe space, conducive to your personal development, growth and self-awareness.
As it's a group setting, you will have the opportunity to understand how you relate to others and work on your communication style.
This group will run over 24 weeks, (with the possibility of extending), with a group size of 10-12 participants.
