Welcome to

You Matter Counselling

The place where your feelings and unique experiences matter

Due to current COVID-19 situation, only remote sessions are available

It is natural that we all at some point will find ourselves in difficult situations and will experience difficult feelings. However, sometimes, feelings may become overwhelming and it can become difficult to manage them on our own. We may experience such overwhelming feelings following a traumatic event, or we may notice that some feelings become stronger in certain situations or with certain people. We may also notice that we encounter similar difficulties across relationships or that there are patterns in our behaviour that we feel are unhelpful. Sometimes, we may feel there are inner blocks that get in a way of us achieving what we want.

 

Counselling can help to explore these struggles in a safe space. With a help of a professional, you can be guided through understanding yourself better, through making sense of your experiences, to therapeutic gains and positive changes that are long-lasting.

 

As commented by a client, counsellor is like a lighthouse that guides a ship to calm waters, to the coast.

              I wish you to find your safe coast!

About Me

Ieva Jansaviciute MBPsS MBACP

Psychodynamic Counsellor

 

I am an experienced and BACP registered psychodynamic counsellor. My background is in psychology and mental health. For over 9 years, I have worked with clients with a diverse range of difficulties (such as anxiety, panic attacks, low mood, grief, depression, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, addictions, psychotic experiences) in different NHS mental health settings, including an inpatient psychiatric unit, crisis service, and a recovery-focused community project.

I have worked with very diverse populations: with individuals of different ages (18+), genders and sexual orientations, with individuals from different walks of life and from different ethnic, racial, cultural, and religious backgrounds. 

In addition to private practice, I currently also work as a counsellor at a charity counselling centre in Highgate and hold an honorary counsellor's post at an NHS Talking Therapies service, where I work with people with anxiety and depression related difficulties.
