About Crea Counselling - Galway

Valerie Ballarotti MA, PG.Dip Couns. is an experienced Galway-based therapist and a fully Accredited Member of both Irish and British Associations of Counselling and Psychotherapy- IACP and BACP.  

She holds a Postgraduate Diploma from the University of East London School of Psychology and qualifications in Jungian Psychology and Art therapy. With further training in areas such as trauma treatment, STORM suicide risk management, Gestalt, CBT and Solution Focused therapy, her approach is eclectic and determined by the needs and sensibility of each client. 

While dialogue and deep listening are the cornerstones of Valerie's work, her sessions may also give clients the  opportunity to explore creative and experiential techniques, such as guided imagery and meditation, drawing, inner dialogue and body work. For others, therapy will be more geared towards learning practical tools to deal with particular situations more effectively.

Valerie offers brief therapy  when appropriate but tends to work longer term to facilitate deep and lasting change. Clients can choose to see her for psychotherapy and counselling on an open-ended basis or book a set number of sessions

She works primarily in English but also offer therapy sessions in ITALIAN and FRENCH

Bereavement Counselling (1 hour)
Valeria Ballarotti MA,PG.Dip Couns. works holistically, creating space to explore not only the emotional, physical and practical aspects of bereavement but also any existential and spiritual questions it may trigger.

Counselling (1 hour)
Counselling refers, like psychotherapy, to a type of inner exploration aimed at nurturing self- awareness, compassion and positive change. Held within the supportive boundaries of a professional therapeutic relationship, counselling can help address psychological distress, both longstanding an recent. In counselling the focus may be more on learning more creative and effective ways of coping and eventually outgrowing current difficulties. It entails a commitment to weekly sessions and it may be of brief duration, commonly between 6 and 12 sessions depending on the nature of the issue.

Psychotherapist Consultation (1 hour)
Like counselling,  psychotherapy describes a type of inner exploration aimed at nurturing self-compassion and positive change, and held within the supportive and confidential boundaries of a professional therapeutic relationship. Usually psychotherapy clients tend to want to engage at greater depths with their inner life. Often this entails the exploration of unconscious dynamics rooted in past conditioning.  The duration of the treatment depends on and is determined by the need of each person. Clients can choose to see me initially for 6 to 8 sessions and then review whether to continue on a more open-ended basis. 
from £53
Treatment for Depression (1 hour)
Each person is unique and so is their depression. In therapy, we work together to understand that uniqueness, and develop a broader sense of self that can contain depressive elements without being limited to or consumed by them.
