Hello, my name is Natasha, I’m British and I’m a practicing counsellor based in Tokyo. I hold a Master’s Degree in Counselling from Monash University in Australia and I have further training in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), Solution Focused therapy (SFT), Life Coaching (CTI), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and a Diploma in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming). I am a member of the Australian Counsellors Association (ACA) and uphold their Code of Ethics while practicing in Japan. Prior to completing the Masters Course, I trained and worked as a Life Coach for 10 years building upon my previous career in Human Resources and careers advising. I have moved countries often and have faced a lot of change and diversity. From this, I have gained a lot of insight and perspective which I like to bring to my work in order to help clients who may be struggling themselves with change and upheaval. Here in Tokyo, I am involved in counselling private clients (adults and adolescents from 11 years old) and working part-time as an International School Counsellor. I also have prior experience working on a counselling Lifeline. I am thoroughly invested in all my clients and care deeply about the outcome of each of my sessions. I want to help people make a positive change to their lives. As Carl Jung said, “there is no recipe for living that suits all cases,” and I uphold this principle by tailoring my work to best suit the individual. I use theoretical concepts and knowledge, combined with an open, friendly and holistic approach to maximize my connection with those that I help.
