A therapist with a twist
Nice to meet you, I am...
Bobbi Borovanska "Banks"
A counsellor, coach, clinical supervisor and neuroscientist based in London, United Kingdom. I help people break negative patterns and beliefs, heal their inner selves, and build healthy relationships with themselves and others.
In my therapy and coaching room it’s us against the problem – you bring the expertise of your life and I bring my professional expertise. It’s a judgment-free zone, we’re all human!
I will walk the road with you and support you to the best of my ability. My aim is to create a safe and trusting relationship where you can begin to reveal and heal your true self.
1. Personal Belief
Keep an open mind towards yourself and others. Learning to accept yourself will allow you to accept the people around you.
2. Life lesson
Time is the most valuable resource we have – cherish it – because we don’t know how much of it we have left.
3. Most proud of
Learning to accept my past for what it is without letting it define who I am and what I become.
4. One advice
Learn something new every day and get to know yourself. Knowledge truly is power, so don’t stop investing in yourself.
My background and qualifications
I refer to myself as a therapist with a twist because I combine integrative therapy with neuroscience and, at times, coaching techniques. This is because I believe that no one theory or approach can suit everybody.
I started my journey with an MSc in Neuroscience at King’s College London. It inspired me to learn more about the mind, which led to pursuing a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Coaching at the University of East London. I then completed Gottman’s Clinical Training in Couples Therapy.
Along the way to becoming a therapist I also completed specialised Neuro-Linguistic Practitioner (NLP) Training, additional coaching training and advanced training in treating anxiety using neuroscience and integrative therapy.
Apart from this, I regularly contribute to articles in the press. Some of my work can be seen in Metro, The Independent, VeryWell Mind, Bustle, Dazed, and other media outlets. I also thoroughly enjoy writing for my blog in the hopes of demystify therapy and mental health.
Lastly, in between sessions with clients and writing I run a popular Instagram channel with over 250k followers where I share self-healing tips and tools, and hold the occasional Q&A.
