Salvo La Rosa:
Integrative Transpersonal Trainee Psychotherapist
My name is Salvo La Rosa and I am a UKCP reg. trainee psychotherapist in the final few months of a five-year diploma training in integrative transpersonal psychotherapy at CCPE (Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education), in Little Venice.
Whatever your wound or life struggle, I will offer a calm and professional space to help you navigate through your current circumstances and towards a direction that is true and right for you.
The professional training I am on is a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. Integrative means that I am training in a broad variety of approaches and can adapt your therapy to what works best for you.
Some of these approaches are Psychodynamic, Person-centred, Gestalt, Body work, Existential, Creative Imagination, CBT and Transpersonal. I also work in a relational and trauma-informed way and have attended specialist workshops and supervision on complex trauma and dissociation.
The Transpersonal approach recognises the spiritual dimension of the individual and uses creative tools such as breathing, body-work, sound, dreams, mindfulness, meditation, guided visualisations and active imagination in order to help you develop your inner qualities and achieve your full potential.
I currently also work in a rehab clinic for addictions together with working in private practice with clients in HQ Therapy Rooms in Dalston, Hackney, E8 and Little Venice. Some of my special areas of interest include working in a heart-centred compassionate way with the legacy of past traumas, neglect and addictions, working with LGBT+ clients. I also have a special interest in working creatively with the feeling of longing or that something is always missing in one’s life.
I came to therapy as a second profession after working in the advertising industry for some years. Originally from Sicily, in the south of Italy, I have called London my home for the past 11 years and now live in the borough of Hackney.
My sessions are offered on a weekly basis and last 50 minutes. I also offer sessions in English and Italian.
