About Understanding Strategies


A warm welcome to Understanding Strategies!

My name is Rayna, founder/director of Understanding

Strategies (formerly Metamorphosis Therapy Centre), a private counselling, psychotherapy, coaching and training practice, which I founded in the year 2000. A highly experienced adult, child and adolescent psychotherapist and clinical supervisor, with a Masters Degree in Integrative Transpersonal Child Adolescent & Family Psychotherapy and registered with UKCP,  I currently work in two schools as lead school counsellor and clinical supervisor, while continuing to run Understanding Strategies, from Northwood, Middlesex.  US provides counselling / psychotherapy, coaching and strategies for children adolescents, adults & families of all ages and backgrounds. In addition, my 30+ years experience as a teacher with passion for pastoral work, as well as my training as a  psychotherapist, has made me highly sought after as a Wellbeing Consultant in schools. I provide advice to Headteachers and Senior Leadership Teams on pastoral issues and present talks and workshops for pupils, staff and parents.


A UKCP registered clinical supervisor and trainer with over 20 years experience,  I also supervise, tutor and run workshops for both qualified and trainee adult and child counsellors / psychotherapists, privately and in schools.

We hope to see you soon!
