Sergio Alexander Gouveia Macia

Personal Trainer

I’m currently a Personal Trainer for The Gym Group and my passion for overall health and wellness give me a great privilege working and helping people. I would love to work with you and help you to
reach your goals, but more important change your lifestyle and provide the right tools. 
The role of physical activity and sport can help prevent and manage mental health problems, I’ll help you to increase your self-esteem and reduce problems as depression and anxiety.
There needs to be clear pathways safeguarding vulnerable adults and children suffering from mental health issues when participating in physical activity and safeguarding generally for all those participating in organised sport. Organisations that promote physical activity in patients with mental health problems should have designated safeguarding staff and referral pathways to more specialist
services. This includes the management of acute mental health conditions.
I will coach and inspire as many people as possible to strengthen and transform your body and reach all your health and fitness goals, the natural way. I will take you through all the training principles you need to know to get the results you want. I love to challenge my groups and push them over their mental barriers making a positive difference in every one of my client’s no matter where they are at their fitness and health journey.
I look to each client individually to help them meet their personal goals while having fun.

Ekta

Qualified Counsellor

I am BACP qualified Counsellor and certified from Online Therapy Institute for online counselling. As an Integrative Counsellor, I believe that there is no single approach that can suit everyone in every situation. Each person is unique, so counselling should also be unique to that person. I aim to cater to the therapeutic experience of each individual,  tailored to  each person’s personal limits, external constraints and goals.  I have worked with adolescents and young adults since 2016 and also  have experience of working with the elderly. Having worked in stressful corporate environment for over 20 years, I understand the stress and pressures of modern life and its impact on our mental wellbeing and of our loved ones.

Rachel Flood

Trainee counsellor

I use a Person-Centred approach which means I focus on working in partnership with my client, allowing them to express themselves without being judged. I am mindful everyone expresses and processes things in different ways and at different speeds so I work with clients individually to make sure I am giving them the best support possible. I create a safe and secure environment to allow them to fully explore their feelings without the fear of judgement. I can use a range of approaches so we work together to tailor the sessions to best suit the client.

Jean Virgo

Trainee Counsellor

I use a Humanistic / Person-Centred approach to work collaboratively with clients, creating a supportive therapeutic alliance to help you explore and make sense of whatever is happening in your life. I will work at your pace to help you achieve your goals and providing a step towards healing and change.

As a counsellor and member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I offer long and short term therapy and support for individuals.

Iona Burnell

Trainee Counsellor

I am currently pursuing a Diploma in Counselling at the Gestalt Centre in London. This is a two-year course and includes supervision and training. My professional background is as a teacher, and I have worked in education for 20 years.

I chose to train in Gestalt Therapy after I experienced the benefits of the therapeutic journey in my own life. Gestalt focuses on raising awareness – to be aware of how we feel, think and behave. This approach leads to improved relationships and wellbeing.

Currently, I am meeting with clients on zoom and on the phone.

Genevieve Quarcoopome

Sarah Avenell

Qualified Counsellor

As an Integrative Counsellor and member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I strive to work with all clients ethically and without prejudice.

Whether you find yourself in counselling for a specific issue or feel ready to explore areas of your past to grow and heal, counselling can help. Our work will be led by you, and I will create a safe and confidential space for you to do this.

Passionate about helping people to learn about their true selves and empowering them to take control of their own lives, I have worked with a diverse client base in both longterm and short-term work to support them on this journey.

I believe that counselling can help free us from the rules we have unconsciously created for ourselves and remind us of the strength we all have within. Sometimes, we just need a little help to find it.
