"Begin to think of yourself becoming the person you want to be." Jim Rhon
Over the years we all go through overwhelming life experiences. Usually we seek therapy because we feel challenged by these experiences. Even with the most supportive family and friends we can feel isolated and find it hard to share what is going on for us.
At these times, we might want to see a qualified professional, who is able to listen to us non-judgmentally, provide a safe, confidential place, where we can
Who am I and how can I help?
My name is Dr Szerenke Kovacs, most people call me Szeri. I am an HCPC registered and BPS Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Supervisor (Register of the Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors), working in Weston-Super-Mare.
I work with adults and young people aged 16+. In some circumstances I can see young people who are under 16 years of age. Feel free to contact me regarding this.
I am an integrative practitioner, shaping my practice to clients’ needs, bringing together understandings derived from various therapeutic approaches, such as relational psychotherapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based approaches, cognitive- behavioural therapy and humanistic therapy. I aim to meet clients with respect, authenticity and supportive engagement.
I have worked with a wide range of people in a variety of circumstances seeking help with low self-esteem, anxiety and panic, stress, depression, abuse, trauma, bereavement, neglect and work-related issues, to name a few.
Whatever you are experiencing, we will explore it together, at your own pace, you deciding what and how much to share.
Am I the right therapist for you?
Research shows that the quality of the relationship between you and your therapist is one of the most important factors in successful therapy. I would recommend that you meet a number of therapists and see how you feel with them before making a final decision. That said, a good place to start is with an experienced therapist with a good track record.
I have been in the field of Psychology since 2005, working with clients therapeutically from 2012. In the past I have offered psychological therapy in a variety of settings, such as charities, schools, University student counselling, IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies), and in the NHS.
