Edina Peto believes that creating a strong therapeutic alliance based on trust is the essence of good therapy. She provides a non-judgemental, supportive and safe space for her clients to explore their feelings on a deeper level. Edina has an integrative approach, using various modalities based on each client’s needs. She draws from person-centred and psychodynamic theories, with an interest in attachment theory. Working psychodynamically, clients will have the opportunity to understand how their past experiences continue to affect their present consciously and unconsciously. Understanding patterns in life can help to process feelings and stop repetitive cycles. By supporting them in having abetter awareness of themselves, therapy can help clients to build stronger relationships and a happier life.
Edina has a background in event and training management. She has worked with multicultural groups, which enabled her to develop an understanding of cultural diversity and intercultural communication. Originally from Hungary, Edina understands the challenges around adapting to a new culture and starting a new life in a different country. Life changes like this can be particularly difficult to cope with and counselling provides a supportive environment for us to learn how to overcome our fears. Edina believes that embracing our unique self plays an important role in fulfilling our potential. She has a special interest in working with relationship difficulties and early trauma.
Edina works within The Awareness Centre’s NHS service in Lambeth. She is a member of the BACP and is currently working towards a Diploma in Therapeutic counselling. She offers therapy in English and Hungarian.
