About Dania

I am a qualified Croydon psychotherapist and counsellor, who adheres to the BACP ethical framework. I have a particular interest in issues of racism and relational patterns in adults who have experienced trauma.

Together, we will explore past life events to gain a better understanding of what might have gone wrong. I can help you implement strategies and techniques in your day- to-day life in order to:

  • enhance your quality of life;
  • rid yourself of maladaptive behaviours and/or negative thinking patterns;
  • ameliorate your communication skills;
  • ensure that you value your needs and/or meet your partner’s;
  • mend your relationship after an affair;
  • navigate conflict in a relationship.

In a safe and non-judgemental environment we can discuss and explore issues which may be hindering your happiness.

I recognise the difficulty of identifying and expressing difficult emotions in a foreign language, hence my willingness to provide therapy in Italian or French if necessary.

Further Information

I also run an online therapy group for people of colour who have experienced abandonment, neglect, emotional abuse, racial abuse, bullying and rejection during childhood. In the group, we will aim to heal your inner child and help you find inner peace. This will be a safe space conducive to your personal development, growth and self-awareness.

As it’s a group setting, you will have the opportunity to understand how you relate to others and work on your communication style. 
This group will run over 24 weeks, (with the possibility of extending), with a group size of 10-12 participants. Please get in touch for more information or if you would like to join the waiting list.
