Dafiny Alves in her Chiswick counselling room


Hello, my name is Dafiny Alves I am an integrative counsellor | Clinical Supervisor and Life coach I am also a certified anxiety and trauma-informed practitioner; member of the BACP and NCPS


I have been working with a diverse range of people from different cultural backgrounds including neurodivergent people like me, since 2018 when I first started counselling, I have over two thousand hours of client work experience under my belt. My experience has been in school settings, private practice, and independent mental health charities, I have experience working with Global majority communities providing culturally sensitive therapy. In the past I offered short-term therapy to Portuguese and Italian speakers’ clients via the IAPT service in South London, work that resonated with me as I am Brazilian and I lived in Italy for a few years, I believe that it is empowering for people to be able to express themselves in their mother tongue and offering this to our clients is what makes the difference in the therapeutic relationship.


I also have experience in managing counsellors as a coordinator of a counselling service in a women’s only charity in Harrow where I recruited and trained counsellor volunteers and assessed client’s suitability for counselling.

Now I am a Clinical 1 -to-1 and group Supervisor at Need to Talk, I’m running my private practice, and school counsellor at Child in Time also I write and deliver workshops on Anxiety, bereavement and well-being to any public not only but I also deliver workshops for Counsellors short -term therapy and currently I am working on a new workshop in self-care for helping professionals. In addition, I am having a go as a blog writer.
