Belinda Williams employs an integrative, pluralistic perspective, based on the premise that each and every person is unique. Her collaborative, grounded approach draws on a variety of modalities, which are adapted according to a client’s needs. Belinda endeavours to build a strong therapeutic alliance with each client in order to enable them to identify and achieve their goals. Firmly rooted in Humanistic and Person-Centred values, she offers clients a safe, empowering and empathic space where they can voice their concerns, be truly listened to and understood. Belinda is passionate about facilitating clients in the discovery and development of their inner resources, strengths and potential. This, in turn, engenders greater self-knowledge, well-being and emotional resilience and equips them to navigate the inevitable ups and downs, challenges and transitions in life. Belinda has a particular interest in drug and alcohol misuse.
Belinda has always enjoyed working with people. She spent many years working in the media and as a teacher. This enabled her to develop strong interpersonal skills and gave her a wealth of experience working with people in all age groups, from a wide range of backgrounds and walks of life. Belinda appreciates how the challenges and pressures of life can take their toll on health, relationships and day-to-day mental and physical well-being. In her own life, she has worked toward developing a truly holistic approach to well-being, incorporating mind, body and spirit. Belinda feels that in today’s world, the vital arts of talking and listening often seem to be missing. Utilising these in therapy can help us understand the processes and patterns in our lives that can cause a sense of ‘stuckness’, and enable us to move toward changing what no longer works for us.
Belinda works in private practice at The Awareness Centre in Clapham. She is a qualified integrative counsellor who combines theoretical knowledge with compassion to find the best way to work with clients. Belinda is a member of the BACP and adheres to their ethical framework and principles of good practice.
