Joelle Harari

I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist who works one to one with adults and young people. Starting to talk about your life with someone can be challenging; my aim is to provide a safe and supportive place for you to explore what is troubling you, so that we can work together to inspire change and improve mental and physical well-being.

In addition to working in private practice, I work as a student counsellor at both The Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Central School of Speech and Drama. I have experience working with a wide range of emotional and behavioural issues; including stress, anxiety, depression, family relationship issues, eating disorders, self-harm, addictions, trauma and bereavements.

Sebastian Bosca

I am a trained and registered BACP counsellor with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy. I’ve worked in the NHS and the Employability sector for the last couple of years and was able to achieve great results and positive outcomes with my clients, as well as in my private practice.

I have been working with a wide range of clients, from children and teenagers to adults and families, each one of them struggling in different areas such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, relational issues, personality disorders etc.

I believe in creating a safe and confidential environment for people to discover what is troubling them and find the most suitable way to deal with their issues, by helping them focus on what they can do rather than what they can’t do.

Life can change in an instance and it did for me. I discovered therapy later in life, after a professional disaster. I was a 45 year old father and husband, I owned a restaurant in West London and I was making a good living. Then, I lost it all, everything, the restaurant, my house and then because of the stress my marriage.

Overwhelmed, I went to see a therapist and I was relieved that he too had lived and experienced life’s struggles and could understand how difficult it can be when life runs aground- suddenly . He like me was a self-made man and he inspired me to become a therapist. I hope that I can offer this bigger perspective as a therapist now.

I am a fully qualified, Therapist (BA Hons) . Alongside my Private Practice, I am employed by the charity Relate as a relationship counsellor.

Emma Shapero

I am a BACP member and a qualified Child and Adolescent psychodynamic counsellor from Birkbeck, University of London, and have worked in schools in many areas of London with young people of diverse backgrounds. Trust and confidentiality are central to my practice- to create a space where the client can explore and reflect on their overwhelming emotions. I use art materials and play with younger clients to express their feelings. A young client recently said, “It is like you have given me a piggy bank where I can put my thoughts.”

I am experienced in dealing with struggles around bullying, abuse, eating disorders, low self-esteem, social isolation, identity issues, anxiety and depression.

Currently I am working with a specialist child grief charity and in a Camden youth counselling service. I have taught parenting extensively in primary schools and I recognise the need to think around the stresses of family life, for both parent and child, and can provide evidence based suggestions to help manage these difficulties.

Kemi Omijeh

I am a BACP registered Child and Adolescent Therapist with 10+ years experience to date. I work exclusively with children, young people and their families. I have experience working with a diverse range of difficulties, particularly school based difficulties and adjusting to significant changes in the family.

My approach is creative; child focused and at the child’s pace. Therapy can be a daunting prospect, particularly for children and young people; rest assured that I am able to work in a gentle and encouraging way that soon puts the young person at ease. I am versatile in my therapeutic work and have a range of ways of working as I adapt my work to suit the child’s personality and needs. Mindfulness, CBT, art therapy and talking therapy are some of the many techniques I use.

I believe in the importance of nurturing good mental health in children and helping them to overcome any barriers to their emotional well-being in order for them live a happy confident childhood and to become secure, successful and emotionally balanced adults. I work closely with the families of the children I see in a non judgmental way, helping them gain a deeper understanding of their child’s needs.

Estelle Longcroft

I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor and have been practising since 2006, providing short and long term counselling to adults, adolescents and children. I have an advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Communicating with Children.

I have worked in nine different schools across London and an international school in Belgium. These schools have been a mixture of Primary, Secondary, College, and a Special Needs School as well as private counselling work with children and young people of all ages. I have also worked for the NHS and in children’s care homes.
Children come to me with problems such as anxiety (including exam or performance anxiety), depression, low self-esteem, coping with disabilities or illnesses, bereavement, trauma, bullying and challenging behavioural issues.
I have an integrative approach to my work that is underpinned with Attachment Theory. Building a secure attachment with a client enables them to feel safe enough to freely express their thoughts and feelings. Depending on my clients’ needs I incorporate other theories such as Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as well as taking a psycho-educational approach.

I am a trained, qualified and an experienced psychotherapist working in the public sector and for charitable organisations. I have experience of working with people from a very diverse background with a wide range of age including the elderly as well as with children and young persons. I value and understand diversity as my clients come from all walks of life or cultural backgrounds. I have also worked with couples. Thus I have worked with a range of issues: eating disorders, psychosomatic conditions, depression, anxiety, and dissatisfaction in work or inability to form satisfactory relationships as well as gender issues.

I work from a psychodynamic model which means helping you to understand and resolve difficulties by increasing awareness of your inner world and exploring how this influence relationships both past and present.

Associate Therapists. Noemi Lercara

Noemi Lercara

I am a BACP registered therapist, my aim as a therapist is to offer a warm, deeply understanding and welcoming place where my clients can explore their own experiences and make sense of themselves in the way that feels right to them. I believe that in offering a supportive and non-judgmental environment allows people to feel free to move in whatever directions they wish, feel accepted for who they are, gain a greater understanding of their internal processes, and live happier and more fulfilling lives.

The counselling relationship I create with my clients is based on trust, confidentiality and acceptance. I strongly welcome creativity and expressivity during the therapy sessions as at times some of our feelings are not easily accessible, or simply we are not aware of them.
What brought me to become a counsellor is my deep trust in human nature, a sense of trust towards our strength to adapt, survive and reach the best we can. I firmly believe in the potential that each one of us holds within himself, with a purpose as a therapist to support people in finding it and live a truly satisfying life accordingly to their real selves.

I hold a Bachelor in Person-Centred counselling, a specialist training in bereavement loss and trauma and a I am currently working at post-graduate diploma level in Adolescent and School counselling.

I have experience in working with difficulties such as: bereavement, trauma, loss, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, addictions, eating disorders, illnesses and end of life, divorce, post natal depression, abortion, identity issues, sexual and cultural identity, sexual abuse and violence, childhood trauma and suicide ideations.

I am completely bilingual and I work in both ENGLISH and ITALIAN.
