"That which is damaged in relationship must also be healed within
relationship; character can only truly be transformed through relationship,
not through solitary practice" (Stephen Cope, 2000:144)
My name is Diego Avila and I am a Counselling Psychotherapist. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and fully uphold their Ethical Framework.
I work using a Relational Integrative Model, which puts the emphasis on the way that we, as humans, relate to each other, both inside and outside of the therapy room.
I am also a Clinical Supervisor as well as a Lecturer in Counselling, currently working in Adult Further Education.
I believe that we are a product of our past, however we are not "destined" to have a certain life simply because of our history. Sometimes, the way we "are" simply doesn't make sense anymore, causing us emotional pain.
There is nothing more healing than being able to tell your unique story and have it listened, witnessed even, by someone else.
I would like to offer you the space to tell yours...
