Ocean stones | Monika Bassani Counselling, West Norwood SE27, London

Counselling in South East London


Counselling is a private outlet in which to talk of difficulties emerging from family dynamics, interpersonal trauma, loss. I can’t single-handedly change your thoughts and feelings, I can guide you towards how to do those things, but the actual doing — that’s all you. It is all about choice if the client decides to let go or modify part of themselves and they can oversee the pacing of their own growth. I as your therapist am to provide you with a safe space to explore those changes to achieve your aims. 


The focus of my work with couples is about the dynamics in your rapport, to explores attachment styles, how to accept differences and to improve the communication a predominant aspect to maintain quality in the relationship with your partner, free from gender based - role display.  


Pre marital counselling enables you to navigate your expectations, to negotiate a satisfactory plan for your future, to feel confident in taking your relationship one step further.

The Integrative approach to counselling and psychotherapy is a blend of theories and interventions an approach to suit the individual needs of the client. In my practice, I integrate Attachment Theories, which it leads to the exploration of how our development is profoundly affected by our earliest interactions with caregivers, early years experiences influenced by aspects of both Nature - Nurture.


This approach guides the client to the understanding of a person’s relational development, the building of those meaningful relationships and how those reflect the client inner narrative, and personal view of the surrounding social aspects.
