Ruslana Verkhola

I hold a Higher Diploma and Master’s Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Dublin Business School,  Practitioner Certificate in CBT from IICP and Practitioners Certificate in Emotion-Focussed couples therapy (IEFT).  I work within an integrative framework, drawing from trainings in several different theoretical approaches, all integrated through.  These approaches take into account many views of human existence: Existential, Psychodynamic, Client centred, Family therapy, Gestalt therapy, Object relations theories, Psychoanalytic, and Transactional Analysis.  I also encourage creativity and self-expression.

I actively listen to client’s experiences and help them to identify their patterns. I also encourage them to express their feelings and create a safe place for change to happen. I facilitate clients in the developing of new strategies for coping.  I understand why people resist change and work with them to help them recognize and overcome their resistance. Lasting change can only happen from the inside out.

I am fully accredited with the Irish Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (I.A.C.P.).
