Hi, I’m Barbara Ortega Desouza, as a qualified counsellor and registered Bacp member I offer counselling to individuals who wish to explore the difficulties they are facing in their lives and how these affect your emotional, psychological and physical wellbeing. I offer an integrative approach in my practice drawing upon various counselling approaches Person centered, Psychodynamic and CBT counselling techniques to suit the individual. Working relationally supports your present issues and concerns and those which may stem from the past and may be affecting your ability to live your life in a fuller way. Most importantly I offer a safe secure and confidential environment, providing a warm, empathic and confidential service to all of my clients to guide you through these difficult times. Through my continuing work at an NHS (Umbrella) funded LGBT/sexual health counselling service I have experience of working with a range of issues including relationship and family issues, anxiety, depression, stress, anger, abuse, trauma, bereavement and loss, sexuality and gender issues.
Fees: My fees are £40 per session (concessionary appointments sometimes available at £35)
