My name is Alba Piedra, I am a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist. I have supported children, adolescents, and adults since 2014. I have gained significant experience working therapeutically with people of different ages, cultures, or genders.
I have worked in the education, private and public sectors and at charities and public entities. This has also included supporting clients in Spanish.
My work ethic is to make sure that I provide a supportive space where clients can find relief, become themselves, and feel empowered.
I have a BSc in Psychology from City University and an MA in Integrative Child and Adolescent Counselling and Psychotherapy (Middlesex University). Also, I am fully qualified and member of UKCP.
Having had therapy myself, I understand how important it is to have support to help us get through challenging circumstances. I can say that having therapy can provide you with a space to be listened to, to be you and express any difficult feelings you might have.
Whether from feeling down, having strains within the family, parenthood, struggling with changes or new stages in your life, even a life-threatening illness or coping with an illness.
Having a space to talk is the most self-loving action one can do for ourselves.
How I work
As an integrative psychotherapist, I use the arts and any approach that suits your needs and preferred form of expression. I am also inclined to psychodynamic, person-centred, humanistic, attachment, mindfulness, arts, and body-mind approaches.
I can provide confidential, non-judgmental, open-minded sessions. It could be short-term, long-term, face-to-face, or online sessions.
During the first session, you can share specific issues you might want to work on, as well as your hopes and goals for therapy.
We can discuss your commitment to a limited number of sessions, or you may want a more open-ended approach. In the sessions with me, I won’t suggest what you should do, but help you to explore your options and increase your resources to progress and cope with your problems.
Experience and education
My experience includes supporting adults at MIND, Teléfono de la Esperanza (UK) and my own projects: Family Emotional Wellbeing project C.I.C. and “The Space”.
In addition, I have supported therapeutically parents, adolescents, and children at secondary and primary schools. In the past, I did my clinical practice at Kids Company and Ealing Schools Counselling Partnership Ltd.
I have worked for the Royal Borough of Greenwich as a Psychotherapist and currently I am a MATT clinician at Capstone Foster care Agency.
