Many people struggle with an internal war. No matter how perfect life is on the surface, the world can still be a frightening place.

In the hectic modern world, there are high demands and pressures forced upon us. From birth we are raised in a way that is useful to society, we are required to fit in the system at the expense of our own feelings. As a result, this conditioning weighs us down and prevents us from living a life filled with joy and excitement. Shining light to such experiences and exploring them can help gain insights into the root of personal distress. This can be reached through counselling or psychotherapy.

Shining light to such experiences and exploring them can help gain insights into the root of personal distress. This can be reached through counselling or psychotherapy.

My expertise lies in working with clients using a psychodynamic approach, which I find more effective once supplemented by other psychotherapeutic approaches such as TA, Gestalt, psychosexual and existential psychotherapy. I also use CBT techniques, according to the client’s needs, for more short-term counselling.

Chair

Counselling

Counselling, in the short-term work, aims to solve a specific issue you are experiencing. Agreeing to see each other once a week for a limited amount of sessions, we will explore the situation you feel troubled by from different perspectives. I am not in a position to give you advice as no one knows how to live your life best other than yourself. You will be provided with a warm and non-judgemental environment allowing you to express your thoughts aloud and find the right answers. I will also help you learn new skills to be more equipped in dealing with your issues.

Couch

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is conducted one to four times per week for a non-predetermined period. It will be a deeper and more thorough work in understanding your inner world and the way you relate to the outside world. By speaking your mind with as few restrictions as possible, you will become engaged with parts of yourself that are worrisome, and you tried to ignore. We will work together through this challenging experience, gradually releasing yourself from the grip of old affirmations and repetitive patterns to find your path towards personal transformation.

How to start?

First, you will have an initial appointment with me before you commit yourself to a counselling journey. If you are unsure whether counselling is right for you or not, the initial appointment will help you find the answer. If you have an idea that you would like to explore, have some expectations from counselling, or have had counselling before and would like to work on a particular problem, the initial appointment is a great opportunity to talk it over.

Please note you will NOT be diagnosed during the initial assessment.

The fee for an initial appointment is £65 as each further session. Please note, the initial appointment is required to be paid in advance.

The first, as well as every other session, are 50 minutes long. You don’t have to keep an eye on the time, I will let you know when we approach the end of the session.

Due to the Covid-19 situation all sessions are currently carried online until further notice.

Payment

The fee for an ongoing online or face-to-face counselling session in Mill Road is £65. You will be issued an invoice at the end of each month, which can be paid via bank transfer.

Cancellation policy

A consultation can be cancelled free of charge with at least 4 days notice, otherwise, the full cost of the consultation will be charged.

Duration

The duration of your counselling will be discussed in your initial assessment. I offer short-term counselling and open-ended psychotherapy, which can be up to four times per week.

Each session is 50 minutes long.

Confidentiality

Everything discussed during the session is confidential. However, there might be circumstances when I will be obliged to breach confidentiality:

  • If I believe there’s a danger that you may cause serious harm to yourself or another person.
  • If you disclose information relating to acts of terrorism or money laundering, I am legally bound to report it to the relevant authorities without consultation.

Integrative individual and group supervision

My supervision practice is aligned with BACP principles and involves coherence, responsibility and integrity. I lean on the Seven Eyed Supervision model to provide a complex and diverse experience for practising therapists to foster their professional development in a warm and supportive environment. The psychodynamic approach stays at the core of my work; however, I am also eagerly supplementing it with techniques from other approaches, such as CBT, TA and existential psychotherapy. I am also sharing my own clinical cases, which are relevant to the presented material.

Individual

I provide a warm and supportive environment for you to feel comfortable to explore your clinical practice and its influence on you. I will help you to see links and make connections in order to shed light on your clients' internal processes as well as to unblock your inner conflicts. I will help you to recognise and explore different forms of counter-transference, triggered experiences from the past and possible parallel processes. These explorations would be supplemented by relevant theories and techniques from other modalities.

The fee for an individual supervision session of 60 minutes is £60, for 90 minutes - £90.

Group

This group will be a safe space for you to reflect on your practice and get a diverse perspectives on your clinical cases. You will be able to learn about different modalities, psychotherapeutic styles and techniques not only from me but also from your peers. Supervision group consists of three therapists and myself. Each group supervision session is 90 minutes long that means each therapist has at least 25 minutes of presenting and discussing time for their clinical cases.

The fee for a group supervision session is £30 per person.

Individual supervision sessions are currently carried through Skype or Zoom, group supervision sessions - only through Zoom.

If you are interested in a supervision session, please send me an email (hello@duraj.space).
