Mihaela Tabaran

I am a Transpersonal Integrative Therapist trained to help you explore your feelings around your issues and discover how they might sabotage or stop you from achieving your goals or having healthy relationships. Psychotherapy is a process of understanding and becoming more fully aware of who you really are – getting to know your True Self, which can be an ambiguous concept to grasp.

I believe that everything that happens to us, even the most terrible things, happens for a reason. They are Divine messages that tell us what to do or stop doing in order to achieve a much more fulfilled life. If we are able to understand these messages and learn the lesson, then our life transforms. 

More often we become defined by the relationships we form in our early years with our parents, siblings, family, peers and wider world. Therefore, these relationships shape the way we see and relate to ourselves and others. These lenses filter our reality and influence our feelings and behaviours. 

“We see the world, not as it is, but as we are – or, as we were conditioned to see it.” (Stephen Covey)

By getting to know how the past might influence our present and future, and taking responsibility for our lives, we allow our true selves to unfold.

Transpersonal Therapy views people as more than worldly beings, also including access to a Higher Divine Self. It seeks to include all aspects of an individual, from the body, mind to spirit or soul.

As a Transpersonal Therapist I believe that each person needs to be recognised for the individual that they are, and therefore my approach is tailored to the specific individual’s needs. I work with dreams and creative imagination such as drawing, guided meditation, body work etc.

It is the relationship between therapist and client that is key to facilitating change and healing. It is therefore important to establish a good trusting relationship first and foremost, out of which the necessary transformation will follow. Psychotherapy requires a commitment from you, initially to the therapy but ultimately to yourself.

PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND:

I am a UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor.

 I have a Degree in Psychology and a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology and I am also registered with the BPS (British Psychology Society). As a Psychologist I am skilled in distinguishing between a clinical disorder and life issues. Please be assured, if things escalate you will have all the support you need. 

 I am also trained in Trans-cultural Psychology which will help me understand your presented issues in the context of your cultural background.

Sessions are 50 minutes long, and typically we will meet on a weekly basis, at the same time and day.

The first session is an assessment where we aim to reach an understanding of what your particular difficulties are. It is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions about therapy and form your own opinion of whether you would like to work with me.

It is hard to give an exact estimate of how many sessions will be required, and we can either agree to work for a fixed number and then review, or work from the beginning on an open-ended basis. In both cases there will be regular reviews of how you feel you are progressing.

My session fee is £65.  Concessions are sometimes available.
