Observing how unresolved transgenerational, developmental and racial trauma, and post traumatic stress disorder ( PTSD ) shape the development of personalities in children and in adults led me to speciality training and education in this field.
Is undealt anxiety spoiling your daily life? Going through problems alone can be challenging at times and therapy can offer a new perspective into opportunities for personal growth and in-depth self-discovery, handling difficult thoughts, feelings, and belief systems that we may find too complicated to discuss with loved ones? My role as a therapist is to help you understand yourself better. In the sessions, I create a safe, confidential and non-judgemental setting in which you may explore and freely express your current and past difficulties that may be causing feelings of ‘stuck-ness’ or difficulty to move forward in your life.

My experience includes working with low moods, anxiety, stress, bereavement, relationship & identity difficulties, diagnosed mental health conditions such as eating disorders, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders ( PTSD ), Dissociation, General Anxiety Disorders and depression.
I am an integrative psychotherapist. My approach is flexible so that it can be adapted to your needs. I work relationally, which means that, through the therapeutic relationship, you are encouraged to explore and understand how early experiences and past relationships impact on your present difficulties. In order to access emotional pain and past traumatic experiences trapped in the body I sometimes use a more mindful approach focused on the body in addition to traditional talking therapies. Of special interest to me is how unresolved and traumatic experiences can be healed and transformed by a greater integration of the mind and

I see adolescents, adults and older adults with anxiety disorders (phobias, social anxiety, health anxiety, OCD, PTSD , panic attacks, GAD), depression (acute, chronic, SAD), personality disorders, bereavement, loss, abuse, neglect, anger and relationship problems.
I know how difficult it is to find a therapist you can trust for help with your emotional and psychological difficulties. Sometimes our suffering is concealed from friends, family or colleagues because we are good at hiding it but deep inside, we are left feeling far from happy, fulfilled or content. At other times our difficulties are more noticeable. I am passionate about helping people live better lives. I help them discover what matters to them, what type of person they want to be and how they would like to behave. Once their values are clarified I help them make sustainable changes towards the things that are important to them.

I have also worked with a domestic violence charity, counselling women who have experienced childhood trauma, sexual abuse, anxiety/panic, low self-esteem and PTSD .
If you are suffering from acute anxiety or are finding your relationships or home life situation extremely stressful, it can be very helpful to talk about it in a safe, accepting place. As an experienced person-centred counsellor, I provide a confidential, non-judgemental environment where you can talk about what is troubling you. I can help you understand the turmoil you are experiencing and help you manage your anxieties. The therapy sessions I offer are online, on a weekly basis for individuals, and can be either short-term or long term, for as long as you need.

My name is Erika Mancini. I am a Relational Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist and a Certified Transactional Analyst. My practice is based in Ealing W5. I work with individuals and couples presenting with a wide range of psychological and emotional issues with a particular focus on trauma, anxiety and relationships. I believe we are all shaped by the relationships we experienced while growing up and that we develop from them the ways we relate to ourselves, to others and form relationships in adult life. Sometimes this can result in adaptations or coping mechanisms that may prevent us from becoming who we really are.

At the heart of my approach to therapy is a belief that the answer to life’s dilemmas is not ‘out there’ but within us. When we start to love and accept ourselves as we are, we can begin to feel more empathy for others, our relationships will improve, and we will find it easier to have the sort of life we want. It is my view that most people could benefit from therapy. It is a space where you can speak your mind without fear of upsetting friends or family. It is a chance to talk over problems with someone who is not going to be judgemental or tell you what to do. It is a place where you can consider your options and make choices.

Seeking therapy can be a scary decision. I do believe however that the issues prompting you to come to me have the potential to enable you to move into a new level of self-understanding. A key principle of my particular therapy - Psychosynthesis, suggests that the symptoms of our problems can indicate a deeper meaning or potential trying to emerge in our lives. Our work together will try to discover what that might be. To achieve this I offer a focused approach for a specific issue in short-term work or we can go into more depth for work in the longer term.

Because one size doesn’t fit all, one model or approach to counselling is not going to suit everyone. I provide an integrative approach that uses Person-centred and trauma-focused counselling on each individual for your unique goals and needs. It can be quite anxiety provoking coming to counselling, especially if this is your first time. I offer a free 30 minute telephone consultation to answer any questions you may have, giving you the opportunity to decide if counselling with me is for you, with no obligation to continue.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore how you can make the changes you need to live a more fulfilled and happier life. I place the therapeutic relationship at the very heart of what I do. Every individual is unique so my approach is tailored to the individual.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
