Integrative Counsellor (BACP)
My name is Eva Serra, I am a BACP registered Integrative Counsellor who works with adults in a safe, warm, and non-judgemental space providing therapy sessions online, in-person and via phone from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, London E8.
I use visualisation and EFT “tapping” (emotional freedom technique), to help uncover blocks, and to work through painful memories.
The Integrative approach allows the sessions to be uniquely tailored to you, in a relational and interactive style. I draw from many types of therapy modalities, such as existential, psychodynamic and person-centred.
I work in a relational way, meaning the process between therapist and client as well as encouraging positive relationships within the individual.
This helps support clients to access their self-compassion and build acceptance with different parts of themselves, which then can mirror their external experience in the world.
I offer different objects and creative tools to help clients express that which has no words. This can help clients support clients to speak about traumatic and or very recent painful experiences, this gives some distance, perspective, and authority to the individual sharing.
I am devoted to the path of finding our inner freedom, which gives room in the therapy space for difficulties beyond that of the ego-personality.
I believe that understanding ourselves and all our subtleties, noticing with acceptance the ebb and flow of our own experience, sets us on the path of freedom and joy.
I have a deep meditation practice and use mindfulness and breathing exercises, especially when working with anxiety.
Working together to challenge (with love) our decisions and behaviours, can transform patterns we thought defined us.
I support to help transform these patterns, giving space to them and understanding that they had a function that helped at one point and to wonder together if the pattern of behaviour is still serving us as it once did.
