About me

“The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.”

Nathaniel Branden

My name is Ineta Kokorisa and I am a Gestalt Integrative Therapist. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their code of ethics. I specialise in trauma and psychological abuse. I work with people from all different backgrounds and with a diverse range of problems. In therapy, I support growth and a fuller self-expression through body-awareness, creative experimentation, and the use of mindfulness techniques.

As a Gestalt-trained counsellor, I can help you to fulfil your potential, to explore yourself and fully embrace life. I am interested in you, your difficulties, and your life transitions. Life is a big adventure and you do not have to be alone in the journey. I provide a safe, non-judgmental, confidential, and supportive space for thoughts and feelings to unfold and be explored.  I work collaboratively with whatever you bring to the sessions, as the therapy room is your space.

I will work with you towards greater self-understanding, self-acceptance, freedom to choose the way you want to live your life. You may come to feel some of your issues can be changed, some can be accepted, all can be understood. These are lifelong processes of discovery. The focus is on gaining awareness now, so that we can take responsibility for the choices that we make for ourselves. As a result, we can live more fully in the present and find meaning in our inner and outer worlds.
