Melita Rova Psychotherapy Clapham Junction & West Norwood

Practicalities. orangeflowers-fw


I offer open-ended individual weekly and twice weekly sessions. If after reading this information you have further questions you can arrange a 15 minute free-consultation with me, during which I will try to answer your questions if I can.

I charge £60 pounds for each session. Some concessionary fees are available for people with specific circumstances. If you feel that your current circumstances may hinder you to access this service because of the fee, speak to me about it. Fees are agreed at the beginning of the therapeutic work and they are reviewed in agreement with the client.

During the first session you will receive a document that is called 'Practice Framework' within which you will find adequate information and more details that may assist you to make a more informed decision about starting a contract with this service.

Keeping Quiet

Now we will count to twelve
and we will all keep still.

For once on the face of the earth,
let’s not speak in any language;
let’s stop for one second,
and not move our arms so much.

It would be an exotic moment
without rush, without engines;
we would all be together
in a sudden strangeness.

Fisherman in the cold sea
would not harm whales
and the man gathering salt
would look at his hurt hands.

Those who prepare green wars,
wars with gas, wars with fire,
victories with no survivors,
would put on clean clothes
and walk about with their brothers
in the shade, doing nothing.

What I want should not be confused
with total inactivity.
Life is what it is about;
I want no truck with death.

If we were not so single-minded
about keeping our lives moving,
and for once could do nothing,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves
and of threatening ourselves with death.
Perhaps the earth can teach us
as when everything seems dead
and later proves to be alive.

Now I’ll count up to twelve
and you keep quiet and I will go.

Pablo Neruda
