ELENA MIARI

Psychotherapist / Counsellor

Working with

Adolescents & Adults

Qualifications:

MA in Psychosocial Studies

Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling

Foundation in Existential Counselling & Psychotherapy

Elena is a qualified psychotherapist and a member of the British Association of Counselling 

and Psychotherapy (BACP). She has a BSc in Psychology, a Foundation Diploma in 

Counselling and Psychotherapy, a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and an MA in 

Psychosocial Studies. Elena qualified as a counsellor in 2008.  

 

Elena has over 15 years experience of working with adolescents and young adults.  Her 

psychotherapeutic approach is Existential and Phenomenological. Existential analysis is 

concerned with the human condition and how we choose to approach the problems, 

dilemmas and experiences that we encounter and how to become aware and change the 

patterns in our living and thinking that may have become obstructive. Existential 

psychotherapy is a relational approach which means that it examines thoroughly our 

relationship patterns with ourselves (our bodies, lived experiences), others and the world 

around us. 

 

Elena has found this approach to be very effective in working with young people as it 

deals directly with issues and questions that are often posed during these years and helps 

young people make sense of their changing experience and their place in the world 

around them.  

 

Elena believes that the therapeutic relationship is an alliance between the therapist and 

the client and it is based on mutual trust, curiosity and the belief that each young person’s 

experience is unique. Her approach is creative and flexible and young people are 

encouraged to be actively involved into shaping how the therapeutic approach evolves. 

 

Elena believes that this approach gives young people a sense of autonomy, trust and 

empowerment in making sense of their own experiences and making informed choices.
