Counsellors

Maura O'Sullivan
Founder of the Twickenham Counselling and Therapy Centre

Maura integrates a number of therapies in her practice, including Existential, Energy Psychology and Person Centred approaches. In addition to these, she occasionally uses CBT as a practical toolkit for everyday living. Maura is passionate about body work and believes that emotions get lodged in the body and 'the body speaks it's mind'. For Maura, thinking is secondary to what philosopher and psychotherapist Eugene Gendlin calls the 'Emotional flow'. This reflects her philosophy that counselling is about relieving stress and finding new ways of living: 'It all begins and ends with the authentic self'. She offers supervision and therapy on a sliding scale. Fees are negotiable with both clients and supervisees. Contact her at TCTC - 0208 892 7610.
