Stephanie Waters offers a warm, safe environment, encompassing the Person Centred conditions of empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard, allowing the client to bring themselves and their experiences without fear of judgement. Stephanie works together with her clients, through guidance and support in the process of self-discovery and healing.
Stephanie’s life experiences have allowed her to explore and understand the complex external and internal pressures we put on ourselves. This helps her to work with the concepts of guilt, shame, and self-confidence/self-esteem. With a background in Human Resources, she has wide experience in workplace issues and conflict resolution. Having lived in two different countries due to her multi-heritage background, she has worked with people from a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds. This had only further supported her belief that relating to another person, and valuing the diversity and uniqueness of each client and their experiences, facilitates profound and powerful understanding, growth, and positive change and movement. She specialises in depression, anxiety, domestic abuse and eating disorders.
Stephanie is a Trainee Psychotherapist, currently studying for an MSc in Contemporary Person-Centred Psychotherapy and Applications (BACP registered), and is a member of the BACP. She holds a BSc in Business and Psychology. She works within The Awareness Centre’s NHS counselling service, at a GP surgery in Wandsworth.
