Raquel Perez Counsellor headshot

I am a warm, open and empathic Qualified Person-Centred Counsellor & Psychotherapist who offers you a safe and honest space. In my own experience, feeling heard and seen -perhaps for the very first time in your life – has a powerful effect. As a Person-Centred counsellor I strongly believe that the relationship ‘is the therapy’ or, in other words, the quality of the relationship is essential for effective results and this is the belief that underpins my practice.

I am led by your unique needs as I trust that, given the right environment, you hold the answers to your own growth. Our work together may facilitate the development of your self-awareness and sense of self; thus, changes may occur leaving you with an improved feeling of well-being and a more confident and empowered you.

I have experience working with clients who are in a period of personal development, or going through a crisis, vulnerability or distress. Particularly, I assist clients suffering from depression, anxiety, PTSD, stress, relationships, shame & guilt, childhood traumas, issues with low self-esteem and self-acceptance who are disconnected from their true self or have suffered from different forms of abuse.

I am also a Spanish Human Rights Lawyer and through that work I gained valuable experience in supporting people who are in high-pressure working environments, those at a turning point in their career and life or those who live under constant psychological/ physical threats, as is the case of human rights defenders. It will be my utter privilege to accompany you on this journey towards change and growth to live the life you really want to live and fulfil your unique potential in life.

I see clients in the Circle Psychology Partners consulting rooms in East Dulwich. Please contact me via my website for bookings.
