Argurjana Grezda-Smith is working towards an MA in Integrative counselling and is registered with the BACP. As an integrative therapist, and recognising the uniqueness of each person, she draws on a range of psychological approaches tailored to the client’s needs. Argurjana endeavours to provide an empathic, non-judgemental and supportive environment where the client will be encouraged to explore their difficulties and gain a new perspective. She is particularly interested in facilitating the therapeutic process where the client is able to identify and draw on their inner resourcefulness and gain insight that leads them to have a more satisfying and happier lives.
Working in an integrative way means that Argurjana might use different skills and techniques depending on the experiences that the clients bring and what they are hoping to gain from therapy. She might use CBT to help clients identify and understand their behavioural and thought-pattern or mindfulness techniques when the clients experience anxiety, stress etc.
With experience in working with refugees, asylum seekers, single parent families, and the homeless she understands the difficulties that they face and the pressures they often feel living in an environment that at times can be judgmental and unsupportive. Whilst her style of therapy is warm, compassionate and non-judgement, her work with clients also involves identifying the negative thought-pattern and learning new helpful coping strategies whilst managing emotions and anxieties that the clients feel. Argurjana works within The Awareness Centre’s low cost counselling service based in Tooting.
