Hi, I'm Monica
Monica Sala (MSc.)
I'm an Integrative Psychotherapist (MSc.) trained at the Metanoia Institute, London and accredited member of UKCP since 2001. I have worked in a number of face-to-face settings encompassing private practice, NHS Primary and Secondary care, voluntary and private organisations, as well as working solely online since 2010.
My specialised training was with Online Counselling and Supervision Training UK and the Online Therapy Institute, and I'm a member of the Association for Counselling & Therapy Online (ACTO). I continue to expand my knowledge and practice of psychotherapy through regular courses and bi-monthly supervision for my clinical work.
After living as an Expat for a number of years, I'm now closer to family in the UK, where I continue to offer support to Expat clients including those for whom travel is an integral part of their working life (be it creative or corporate) or working for NGOs across the globe. My own multicultural background, growing up in different countries and interest in current affairs, further enriches my understanding and passion for this work and way of living. Professionally, it also led me to run prejudice awareness workshops and focus groups for local authorities, and co-facilitating on a community project with the Roma in Slovakia. Moving around seems to be in my blood and working with people from different cultures, regions and walks of life, is an aspect of my online work I particularly enjoy.
I feel lucky to consider psychotherapy a vocation. Having known from a very young age that I wanted to work in this field, my career path and training have been towards achieving this end. In the last 10 years I have also discovered a passion for photography, which together with swimming, hiking and yoga also nourishes my soul. While I don't follow any particular religion, I find meaning in spirituality through our inter-connectedness as humans and the complex beauty of the natural world.
