About Cheryl Fulop
Psychotherapy is a second career for me. Prior to embarking on this rewarding professional path, I worked, for many years, in the hospitality industry. This experience has informed my diverse therapy practice, in many profound ways. I trained at The Centre for Psychotherapy for eight years, which stretched my academic and emotional capacity. My approach is client-centered, relational and attachment focused, while empathy, compassion, creativity and humor play important roles within it. I also bring valuable life experience and a long personal therapeutic history, to my work, which has allowed me to possess a deep understanding of what it is like to sit in the client chair.
Language I work in: English

What happens in a therapy session
I believe that nothing is trivial within the therapy setting. My ears are always perked up to these nuances that can lead to a greater understanding of your lived experience. It is my responsibility, as your therapist, to be available to you, to support and challenge you as a catalyst for your development. I will provide the scaffold for you to feel that you are not defined by your emotion al struggles, what you look like, your perceived weaknesses or your past. All of what you possess and have experienced are unique to you and are weaved together in creating your unique story.
A good therapy is fundamentally built on the feeling that your therapist can relate to you. Therefore, I offer a free 30-minute consultation for you to get a sense of this and it is my preference to meet in person. I will also welcome any questions that you may have around your therapy and me.
