Get to Know Alva

Why did you choose to become a therapist?

I also love talking and helping people from a young age.

Why do you think integrative therapy is the most effective form of therapy?

I believe in delivering and combine several different psychological methods to ensure that the service can work most effectively for my clientele. Many clients normally think, feel and behave in different ways, which does feel important to them, as unique individual. The service covers a wide range of therapeutic and holistic approaches, which covers many areas like relationship counselling, panic attacks, stress, addiction therapy, bereavement, anxiety, depression and abuse. Sometimes our clients are not sure of the area of therapy they need or want to work in and may just want to talk in a safe environment without any advice or judgement.

How would you describe your therapy session & approach?

I work in a non-judgmental way, which is respectful of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy ethical framework and policies. My service believes that a commitment to confidentiality, safety and have a respectful attitude is essential
