I studied Counselling & Psychotherapy in Chrysalis UK.
Recently I gained my diploma in CBT/REBT at The College of Cognitive Behavioural Therapies.
I have more than 12 years of professional work experience in my private practice as NCPS licensed Counsellor.

After I was trained in Chrysalis, I subsequently adopted their integrative approach in helping adults with various psycho-emotional and psychosomatic issues. I synergistically apply Client centered, Psychodynamic and CBT/REBT methods in order to better understand, support and help my clients.

Complimentary to my counselling practice, as qualified Shiatsu practitioner and Remedial massage therapist, I treat clients with:
-pronounced psychosomatic conditions (in which physical pain and physiological problems manifest as a result of underlying psycho-emotional issues),
-especially somatopsychic conditions (in which physiological problems lead to psycho-emotional stress and uneasiness or even anxiety),
-typical painful musculoskeletal, back, neck and joint conditions due to physical strains or injuries

My professional background is quite diverse. Starting with military service for 14 years in my country-of-origin Bulgaria, going through mechanical engineering (civil qualification gained from Military academy), electrical installations here in UK (qualified from my secondary school), providing high level of Safety critical work in LUL, Work team leading, Maintenance engineering work etc. These vastly enriched my personal life experience. Especially in meeting and dealing with people.

Being on this earth for quite some time, I dare to say I’ve reached a stage in my life when I can afford to liberally use my so called phronesis, or practical wisdom, in a quest for better help of my clients.

In my Counselling practice, I work with clients presenting with high levels of distress, worries, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, leading to family/marriage, work, or relationship issues.
