Happy Sisyphus Counselling - Growing through adversity
My name is Andreea Achim and I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I have created Happy Sisyphus Counselling because I believe people affected by trauma and adverse experiences have the potential not only to survive, but to truly thrive.
I offer a caring, confidential and safe space in which I invite and support you to examine the pressures and adversities in your life and discover ways in which you may consolidate your resilience and inner strength.
I offer face to face and phone/online counselling sessions. I am based in Gravesend.
Please note I am also an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist providing therapeutic support to the charity’s members and partner beneficiaries. I am subject to Anxiety UK’s regular monitoring of my professional qualifications, supervision, continual professional development, insurance and professional body membership in addition to complying with the ethical framework and professional standards set down by my registered governing body.
Why Happy Sisyphus?
For millennia, people have been handing down wisdom through stories. In Greek mythology, Sisyphus was the king of Corinth who defied the gods and was punished to forever roll a boulder up a hill, only for it to roll back down again.
I believe we can all relate to the struggle of different challenges in life and while we are vulnerable to crumble under the weight of the pressure, we are also capable of incredible resilience and defiance in the face of adversity.
In my counselling practice, my aim is to help you access your resilience and inner-strength. I invite and support you to examine the boulder of adversity which may be keeping you stuck, and discover ways in which you may transform it from burden to strength and become a Happy Sisyphus.
