Nora Klagka adopts a Person-Centred approach, which means that she strongly believes that clients can come to terms with their inner struggles and with the difficult situations they face, when they are heard in a non-judgemental way within a safe environment. Having embraced the humanistic side of her approach she is convinced that through the experience of a non-directive but trustworthy therapeutic relationship, clients can explore their feelings and realise their personal worth, inner strength and potential. She offers a safe and calm environment where clients are given a chance to focus on themselves, hear their own voice and work towards achieving their inner balance.
Nora has a background in Classical Studies and she is very well versed in Greek philosophy, whose main principals she integrates into her therapeutic method. She has left an Academic career in Art History to become a counsellor and she has ample experience with the effects that competition, isolation and emotional bullying can have on an individual’s self-esteem and emotional wellbeing. Nora has also worked with young people with learning difficulties, physical disabilities, anger issues and depression within the environment of secondary and adult education and she understands the difficulties that can arise in relation to cultural and social differences within diverse working environments.
Nora is a Person-Centred and Integrative trainee counsellor, and a member of BACP. She works for The Awareness Centre’s NHS Counselling Service in Lambeth. She also works helping young people with learning and emotional difficulties in a college of further education and she volunteers for an organisation which supports individuals with mental health issues. Nora is currently working towards a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling.
