Integrative Counsellor: Irina Florea

About me and my therapy practice

Therapy for adults of all ages with a focus on strengthening self-confidence and self-esteem, developing healthy and positive habits and behaviours, while addressing struggles such as anxiety, depression, burnout, ADHD, surviving abuse, self-harm, relationship and family issues, loss and grief.Irina-Flovea-24-October-2023-Profile-Pic-scaled

I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).

I offer online therapy (via video calls) and in-person sessions in Bristol and in Frome. Every Tuesday, I have availability for in-person sessions in Bristol (Redcliffe area). Depending on circumstances, I also offer telephone sessions.

I offer a safe therapeutic space for LGBTQ+ people and aim to support inclusion and diversity around gender, biological sex diversity and sexuality.

Furthermore, I have experience in supporting clients as they learn how to manage ADHD (pre or post diagnosis) and the feelings that result from it.

I am trained in an integrative way, applying theory and practice from the Client-Centred Model and integrating other humanistic therapies (Existential, Gestalt, Psychosynthesis) and Psychodynamic therapy. Furthermore, I have comprehensive knowledge and experience with Bereavement, Loss and Grief through the work I have done with the UK largest bereavement charity – Cruse Bereavement Support.

Working with a variety of struggles that follow loss and grief, I turned my attention to other therapeutic models and specialisms – Attachment Theory, Trauma-Informed Care, Transactional Analysis, Internal Family Systems. To support long-lasting results in therapy for my clients, I use elements of Mindfulness and Meditation, with attention to integrating breathing and body-based techniques in the therapeutic process.

I offer counselling in three languages: English, Spanish and Romanian.
