Gloria is an approachable, warm and non-judgmental person who will listen with careful attention and respect to the concerns of her clients. Gloria helps her clients gain a deeper understanding of whatever is troubling them and helps them find positive outcomes. Her approach is integrative and draws on the person centered approach, focusing on the client as a whole rather than a combination of symptoms. She provides a comfortable, supportive and safe space where she can work collaboratively with her clients and where their thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and explored. Gloria helps her clients by working together at a pace and a level that feels right for the client. In this way she can understand the purpose behind the problem and explore the options that begin to present themselves.
Prior to her counselling training, Gloria worked for the NHS and for the past six years has worked in the Charity sector in Finance. She has developed an understanding of the challenges and pressures of the work environment and the difficulties in maintaining a healthy work/life balance. Previously being a Wellbeing Champion, she is now a Mental Health Ambassador within her organisation. Gloria is experienced with working with issues surrounding work place issues, depression and stress.
By learning and understanding how therapy can bring about helpful and positive changes within a person’s life, Gloria developed a passion for counselling especially around the area of relationships and the sexual wellbeing of couples. She believes her life experiences and that her professional training qualifies her to support clients who may be going through significant life changes, with particular insight into how financial challenges might impact upon relationships.
Gloria is an integrative counsellor and is registered with the COSRT. Her ambition is to qualify as a Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist and she is currently completing the London Foundation Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy and will be working towards completing the Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy. She works with The Awareness Centre’s low cost counselling service in Tooting.
