About me

Veronica Rumens

BACP Reg., BSc Hons Psychology, Adv Dip Integrative Counselling

Approaches: Attachment-based Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (ICEEFT member), Psychodynamic, Trauma Work


I am a professionally trained and fully qualified integrative counsellor, offering counselling and psychotherapy service for couples and individuals in Greenwich, South East London. I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. I also have a degree in Psychology. 


In addition to my private practice, I have worked in other generic counselling settings which gave me experience of working with many different types of people from varying walks of life.


I have developed my experience through different aspects of work. I have a background in business psychology, and had a successful career as a consultant prior to my clinical career. Working as a management consultant enhanced my analytical skills, and now, in my current work as a counsellor, I am able to think with a very open mind, enabling me to look beyond that which is obvious.                               


Counselling at SPACE FOR SELF


"The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy"


At Space For Self I offer my clients a safe place for exploration and transformation. I see counselling as a process of discovery of our real authentic Self. A journey towards living to our full potential. 


I work in an integrative model, which means using different elements of therapeutic theory to create an exploratory way of working with clients. I work with clients’ present day experience, using a wide range of creative methods to allow deeper discovery and understanding of self.


I tend to combine more common therapy approaches with recent and innovative approaches and techniques, depending on my clients needs.
