My name is Lena, I am a qualified person-centred counsellor/psychotherapist, professional supervisor, mindfulness/meditation teacher and practitioner.
I was born in a country that literally disappeared from the map when I was twenty-one and was training to become a secondary school teacher. This was a real-life crisis, forcing me to learn to live and survive through extreme challenges. I have since moved to two countries to live and work, both with very different language and cultural challenges. These experiences helped me to adapt to change, to be resilient in adversity and to be ‘curious about culture’.
I have met some amazing people who also supported me on this journey and who continue to influence who I am now - an experienced Counsellor, a wife, a proud mother of a young adult daughter, a ‘spiritual seeker’ and trying to practice mindful awareness in all I do.
I have seen the importance of trying to transform every obstacle in life’s journey into an opportunity to become the more the real and content ME. You see, I just know that without finding our true self, we simply cannot find real joy in life. I have healed my traumas of loss and other life crises by ‘accepting’, being honest with myself and courageous in making some difficult decisions.
I would be delighted to share all I have learned through my journey and professional training to support you in your challenges, perhaps to re-discover yourself & maybe find YOUR fulfilment in your life and your relationships with people and the world.
