Announcement icon I'm able to offer sessions via video calling on the video platform of your choice.
There's a first time for everything. Most newcomers to counselling & psychotherapy start out feeling a little intimidated by the idea of this rather mysterious process. I aim to demystify what I do - clients often comment on what they describe as a down-to-earth and accessible approach. My aim is ultimately to help you understand yourself and your behaviour. I feel that goal is best achieved by working in a non-threatening, straightforward and inclusive way.
Derived from an integrative approach to psychotherapy and counselling, my aim is to shape my practice to the unique needs of each client, rather than attempting to shoehorn people into a pre-determined way of working. The formulation of an individual package based on feedback from the most recent research starts from the very first moment you contact me.
I will normally ask you to commit to an initial 6 sessions - this often proves sufficient for relatively simple issues. For others, the six sessions offers an introduction to counselling/ therapy, where I'm am able to assess needs. At the end of the 6 weeks, we will review the work we've undertaken and decide whether or not more detailed work is required.

Erika Lawal's Groups

Brown Girls Working It Out - for BAME women

Devised as a therapy group following Schema Therapy principles, this is a shred space which BAME can use to examine themselves, grow and develop into their full potential. Using Schema Therapy principles to examine feelings, beliefs and behaviour patterns and coping strategies it’s a place to work towards finding a greater sense of personal freedom and autonomy in a world where we are frequently invisible or pigeonholed without individuality. We seek to avoid turning ourselves into victims or becoming paralyzed by anger. A source of support, learning, growth inspiration… and lots of laughs!
