Mrs. N. Roždestvenskaja,
Psychotherapist and Counselor
Gsm:  0485 394 688
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and Counselling Psychologist (in Doctoral training). I offer individual short or long-term therapy for English, Russian and Estonian-speaking adults and young people above the age of 16 with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, communication issues, lack of direction, problems in relationships, self-identity and cultural adjustments, expat problems etc.
The purpose of counselling and psychotherapy is to assist clients in reassessing how they experience their past and present, so that they can resolve internal conflicts, let go of destructive patterns and allow themselves to engage with others in more productive ways (Lapworth and Sills, 2010).
Through making sense of our past and present experience and developing awareness of our personal motivations, relationships, learned patterns, defences, and so on, and integrating different aspects of our personality, we achieve more balanced way of being and learn to experience life in a novel way. This is done working collaboratively in the context of a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship.
In my clinical work as integrative psychotherapist I draw on different theoretical frameworks, depending on the particular needs of a client, e.g. relational psychoanalysis, transactional analysis, humanistic and existential views of the person, and cognitive-behavioural approaches.
I consider relational focus, a holistic view of the person and an individualised approach to be essential for an effective therapy. In addition to focusing on a particular presenting problem, the attention is also on development and change across the lifespan.
I abide by the HPC (UK Health Professions Council), BPS (British Psychological Society), UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and Metanoia Institute Codes of Ethics. These codes can be consulted on request.
All sessions are confidential.
The duration of a therapy session is 50 minutes.
I also offer some pro bono counselling and psychotherapy for reduced fee. Please contact me for further details.
