Hello, my name is Caz Binstead. I am a fully qualified, registered integrative counsellor offering counselling and therapy in the Clapham area.
WHAT IS COUNSELLING….
Counselling is a place for you to talk in confidence about issues or problems that might be affecting you. Coming to counselling is a courageous step, particularly if you are dealing with difficult or overwhelming feelings. I aim to create a safe and trusting space, and value the relationship between client and therapist as the most crucial element.
People come to counselling for lots of different reasons. Sometimes we feel down or stuck, or that anxiety is taking over our lives.
I believe loss and change is also a fundamental, yet often difficult, part of life. It is not exclusive to bereavement, and many people who seek counselling do so because there is a change or a loss in their life that they are struggling to cope with. Life is an ever-changing process and this can be a struggle for all humans – something that connects us wherever we are in the world.
HOW CAN I HELP…
I can provide an environment for growth and understanding, where we can work together to express and explore feelings. As we will hold weekly sessions together, a regular and constant base is provided for you to bring whatever you feel is important each week. Most importantly, you will feel listened to and supported in our work together.
is based on the belief that if we can be in acceptance of ourselves in the here and now; particularly who we are, then we can live more fulfilling lives. Some years ago I had a traumatic experience, which left me confused as to who I was and what role I played in this world. I entered into therapy to deal with the massive changes that had occurred in my life. In this process, I also realised that in the aftermath I had been left unhappy because there were different parts of me battling with each other, and yet I was only accepting of some of them. As I learnt to embrace myself more holistically, and understand myself better, I became passionate about therapy and it was then that I decided to train to become a counsellor/therapist.
