Dr Roz Doe
Dr Roz Doe offers an empathetic and safe therapeutic space, where clients can explore difficult experiences and feelings and find ways to process and cope with these. Roz has is practising an integrative approach because it enables her to draw on various theories and tools to meet the individual needs of each client at that particular moment in their lives. At times she may draw on a Psychodynamic approach in order to help a client explore past events and early childhood experiences that maybe unconsciously impacting on their present day lives in ways that are unhelpful. At other times an existential or humanistic approach may serve better, enabling a person to explore how they respond to life’s uncertainties and limitations and how they find meaning in their lives and develop their potential. Roz believes it is important to work collaboratively with clients in a calm, supportive and non-judgemental way.
For the last fifteen years, Roz has been doing academic research and working in the charity sector to offer group and one-to-one work supporting refugee communities in the UK and internationally. This has given her an insight into how traumatic events can impact on an individual’s wellbeing and mental health. It has helped her understand the value of listening to and supporting clients, who may be experiencing challenging life circumstances with no immediate solutions.
Roz is a student member of the BACP. She is currently working towards a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and works for The Awareness Centre’s NHS counselling service in Lambeth.
