Background & Training
Ines is currently completing her BSc in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the Institute of Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (IICP) which consists of four years of intensive training. She is registered with the IACP (Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and abides by their Code of Ethics. Ines is committed to ongoing training and professional development and attends regular clinical supervision.
Ines’ clinical approach is primarily grounded on Person-Centered Therapy, Choice Theory, Mindfulness, and Family Systems. Ines allows clients to explore their issues and decide for themselves how to move forward. She works collaboratively with the client to investigate the therapeutic approach that will be most effective for them, acutely aware that counseling is not a “one size fits all” process. Her priority is to support clients in a deeply empathetic and nonjudgmental way.
Ines has a background in medicine, having qualified as a doctor in Serbia. Here she learned about the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of mental illness, including various issues related to mood, behavior, cognition, and perceptions.
Ines has an interest and experience in family systemic therapy which has helped her discover ingrained behavioral patterns in a living system, which is a group of people like a family.
