We have all been there – needing support and not always knowing where to go or whom to turn to. It can be difficult in taking this first step to seek help, to find someone to set up an appointment, wait for that appointment, and confide in them.
Confide In will help you in taking this first step, providing secure counselling and emotional support.
Confide In is confidential, delivering quality care, convenient, cost-effective, and there for you, whenever you need someone to talk to.
Emotional support is at your fingertips.
I provide in-person (in Cyprus) and online counselling and emotional support services with messaging, voice and video calls.
An initial discovery session is offered at no cost, to explore what your needs are, what you would like to work towards, and whether we are a good fit to be on the counselling journey together.
My approach is person-centred – to work where you are, using cognitive, behavioural, and mindfulness strategies. I am interested in the link between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviour, and how they may inhibit us in where we want to be.
The service is secure and confidential.
Confide In is reliability at its best, ensuring that you receive a response from your counsellor in a timely manner.
Send a message or talk from anywhere. Busy lives are led, and it is understandable that seeking support may not always be easy. Confide In provides convenience in reaching out to your Counsellor.
Confide In is all about professionalism, with training and experience.
Confide In is affordable, with flexibility in pricing.
My name is Valencia and I have been working as a Counsellor since 2014. I deliver quality care for a range of clients across different cultures, including refugees and asylum seekers. Having grown up in Hong Kong, I understand the city and what people might face. My sensitivity to cultures and the sub-cultures therein aid me in my counselling and in understanding the individuals that I work with.
I was drawn to counselling having neglected my own emotional wellbeing. As a result, I wish to make counselling as aware and accessible as possible, recognising the need for it in today’s young adult population.
I work to understand my clients, to give them the space and support they need, and work collaboratively on an approach to explore different perspectives and options. I believe everyone has the capacity for growth and change, that this needs to be harnessed with the right support.

We tend to think about the mind and body as separate entities, seeking help if our physical body is not feeling quite right.
Yes, it’s a question that is asked a lot, and we don’t often stop to really think about the answer. But there is significant meaning behind the question itself.
The true meaning of compassion is to recognize the suffering of others and then take action to help. Compassion embodies a tangible expression of love for those who are suffering.
Procrastination is the practice of deferring or postponing duties until the last possible moment or after the deadline has passed. It may be such an ingrained pattern that it seems impossible to change it.
People who are angry most often believe that their anger is legitimate. Others, on the other hand, are not always in agreement.
People express emotional support for others through encouraging, reassuring, and showing compassion to those in need. There are several ways to show empathy, such as verbal remarks or physical gestures.
According to reports, spending too much time on virtual platforms may influence people's self-image and cause them to rush for cosmetic treatments they may not have contemplated months before viewing a video screen, a new phenomenon known as "Zoom Dysmorphia.
Let’s talk about the R-Word. What’s the R-Word, you’d ask? Well, in the most non-offensive way possible, R-Word (or R-Slur), stands for terms like “retard”, “retarded”, and any other word ending in “-tard”.
Sometimes, the fear of being labeled and discriminated against leads to people hesitating in seeking help for their mental health issues.
