My name is Carena Rogers and I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I specialize in working with women for both short-term and open-ended therapy, using therapeutic approaches that support self-acceptance, personal development, and finding power in saying what they want.
Do you ever get the feeling that there must be more to life than this, feeling deep down that you want something different? For many women this can be especially hard. We can be so used to putting others first that it is difficult to hold on to our own self-worth and the value that we bring. When you add in experiences of everyday sexism, micro-aggressions and ageism, this can really knock our confidence and lower our self-esteem. Doubt creeps in and we lose our sense of purpose.
When we feel unsure of ourselves or which direction to take next, it’s hard to remember our own strengths, to reassure ourselves, or to work out what we want from life. We can feel anxious, depressed, angry, and our wellbeing can suffer.
If you find it hard to put yourself first, or who have found yourself overlooked time and time again, I can help you discover who or what you would like to say ‘yes’ to and to feel more comfortable saying ‘no’ when you need to.
I offer a warm, safe, non-judgemental space in which to explore what you want from relationships, work, or in life in general. This can help a deeper personal understanding to emerge that can support you to make changes in your life.
Alongside my private practice I am a Counsellor at the Maya Centre, specialising in working with women who have experienced abusive relationships, adverse childhood experiences, and abuse-based trauma.
Therapy is personal and can be experienced differently by each of us. If you feel unsure whether it will be right for you, I offer an initial session for us to both see if we might work well together. Please get in touch to find out more.
I work online by video call or in person in my therapy room in Brick Lane.
My fees start at £65 for a 50 minute session.
I offer some concessionary rates, please ask if you think that you might need this.
