Ally Morawetz endeavours to be a warm, empathic and open counsellor. Her two main approaches, are person centred and psychodynamic. The Person-centred approach means that she offers a safe and supportive and trusting space in which to explore problems, thoughts and feelings together, without the fear of being judged. If the client wishes, through her psychodynamic training, Ally can offer links or interpretations of how past events relationships and trauma are affecting the present. This helps give a greater clarity on why we feel and behave in the way we do, and this understanding can give a more positive self-view and more choice. Through offering a supportive and collaborative relationship, she helps her clients to face problems and make positive changes in their lives.
Ally’s main background is in telecoms as a researcher, but she has had a number of jobs. These include working in care homes, book keeping and sales. She understands the pressures and difficulties of family life and managing relationships both at home and at work. She has a special interest in communication, especially where self-esteem or bullying has been a problem.
Ally is currently working towards a Diploma in integrative counselling. Being an integrative counsellor means that she can use more than one approach in therapy and can use what best suits the client. She is a member of BACP. She works works within the NHS Wandsworth counselling service.
