Natalia Maciel MBPsS

Hello! I am a psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society.I enjoy helping people in their desire to close the gap between where they are right now and where they want to be in the future.

I am passionate about counselling,I have experienced and witnessed the many benefits that talking to an experienced counsellor can bring.I have a foundation in different therapies but I work from a PERSON CENTERED approach.

I will help you to realise what resources and support are available to you that you can use to work through your own issues, build your self-confidence and appreciate that you always have options.I will treat you as the expert on yourself, as no-one else knows exactly what it’s like to be you.

I will not judge you, no matter what you bring to the session. This helps build a trustworthy relationship in which you can feel free and supported to disclose whatever is troubling you. Eventually it will lead you to discover your own abilities and autonomy, so that you can cope with current and future problems.

Wenna Chen

When it comes to relationships, do you • Find it hard to say no to people?  • Find yourself doing all the heavy lifting, but feel people often take you for granted? • Feel left out, lonely and resentful?

NOW IMAGE YOURSELF

• Saying no to people without feeling guilty

• Genuinely looking forward to spending quality time with others

• Being clear and firm with other people about how you feel

• Being open and honest about how you feel, without worrying about the other person’s response.

I am Wenna, and I help people to build healthier relationships

We are often told ‘you need to be nice to be liked’

So, you put yourself last

You accommodate other peoples’ needs before your own; you are always the one who listens and supports others,

But who is there for you?

While it’s okay to be someone’s rock, it’s not okay, if doing so leaves you feeling resentful and dissatisfied

There is a ‘ win-win’ solution. This is to apply the same love that you give others to yourself

It sounds really easy, but this is difficult if you don’t know what your needs and wants are

There are ways of listening to yourself that help you clarify what is acceptable and what isn’t

LET ME SHOW YOU HOW

I am Wenna, and I help people to build healthier relationships

I remember how I used to feel deeply unhappy in my relationships.

I came to realise, a main contributing factor was that fundamentally, I didn’t approve of, or accept myself. I didn’t feel I was worthy of love.

I am happy with my relationships now, because, through therapy, I learnt how to listen to myself and accept me for who I am. I now help people with similar issues.

You can change and grow through this, you deserve peace and happiness just like anyone else

It’s my aim to work collaboratively with you, so that together we can explore how to move your life forward in a positive way.

I also work with couples to help improve communication and bring changes to their relationships.

I look forward to hearing from you

With love x

Wenna

Gordon Wax

You haven’t come this far, to come this far.

I run quite a bespoke service, because everyone has vastly different requirements that constantly change regardless of the current climate. However there must be some sort of therapeutic framework so that change, growth and all-round wellbeing has a place to emerge from. The therapeutic relationship will be one built on trust, this often taken time to be felt. But also required a commitment to each other, just like any other normal relationship. Therefor I try to explain the importance of “showing up” to therapy, both physically and metaphorically, so that your investment in self actually works.

A therapeutic environment can be quite a peculiar place to seek out and then find yourself in, however our world and all of our experiences we touch or run away from can be just that, weird! I invite you to pause and reflect upon the route of where the weirdness come from. Perhaps just picking up the phone, pressing send, or even uttering the words “I need help” feels impossible.

In therapy, bring all of your baggage, losses, failures, good bits and the unattractive parts including four letter words. This being said, if you are feeling reserved, unable to find words that hide behind feelings or actions, then we work slowly, unpacking one bag at a time, at a speed and style that is correct for you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Gordon.

Hal M.

Hello there dear reader, my name is Hal, short for Haldun Hüseyin Musazlioglu (just call me Hal, everyone does).

When people ask me how I got into psychotherapy, I usually say it got to me first:
I was 12 years old when I first had to see a therapist. People near me (ironically not my parents) noted already back then my permanent gloomy and melancholic outlook on life – even this in Germany where I was born, by all means not a country known for its ‘cheerio!’ attitude. Years later, I was diagnosed with dysthymic depression and finally had to be put on anti-depressants aged 30 after a preceding psychotic episode (my way of a mid-life crisis: not blowing a lot of money, but instead losing gradually touch with reality). It was also around this time when my aunt in Turkey shared that the entire matrilineal side of our family had prolonged battles with depression. Thanks, mum.

On top of this, our Muslim upbringing didn’t aid much to my family’s mental health. It also doesn’t do much for you if you realise you’re gay, and you eventually need to come out. As I had to. And did. My mum cried for three months, realised eventually her son will never be the imagined prim solicitor/doctor with wife and kids, so reverted instead to hate my tattoos.

By age 19, I had properly felt sick and tired of that kind of constrained upbringing, also of the Germans, so moved to London (though frankly, now I feel like that with the English, but this is for a different forum…)

After several more years bumbling through various underpaid customer service jobs,  I studied Art & Design/more or less useful degrees (Furniture Design. Yes, seriously.) and tried myself out among other things as a film extra and a Stand-up comedian (memorably, I died in a North-London pub in front of an audience that consisted of my ex-boyfriend and Russell Brand), I looked finally into how I could use my own experiences with depression, inter-cultural clashes, emerging kink-sexualities, an HIV+ status and a fanatical liking for Heavy Metal, so I eventually studied counselling.

By 2012 I started my counselling studies and after around 5 years, including one failed year of CBT (blowing finally a lot of money after all), I decided to stick with the humanistic school of therapy of Person-Centred counselling, developed by Carl Rogers. From the 1940ies on, already being a bit of a hippie and believing that everyone is innately ‘good’, he decided to emphasise the non-hierarchical alliance between client and therapist, while maintaining an “unconditional positive regard”.

And I soon found it worked for me – and for my other job, which is in mental health rehabilitation.

Then in August 2019, I also started my MSc degree in Psychology with Arden University. My plan after I finish in around three years’ time, is to fall into a very relaxing coma.

Until then, I genuinely find a lot of fulfilment through my work, so please don’t hesitate to ask me questions about whatever life has thrown at you.

Das alles übrigens gerne auch auf deutsch!  ; )

Ashley Horsley BA MA Post MA Dip

I have been in mental health for over twenty years and my work as a psychotherapist is where I belong: it is a vocation.  I bring to the work not only the solid base of knowledge gained in trainings; but also the insights and inspiration drawn from the privilege of working with others’ stories; the wisdom that comes from living through my own real challenges in life and in ageing; and the warmth, empathy and perspective with which I build good strong therapeutic relationships.  Trust is, ultimately, what we need to be able to be who we really are; I offer the safest possible space to allow you to trust me.

I offer reduced fees for people in financial difficulties. A reduced price between £35-55 will be discussed during our trial session.

Sharan Thiara

I am a qualified Psychotherapist counsellor who practices with a Humanistic & Integrative approach. This means I will focus on the needs of you, using techniques from different approaches.

Each and everyone of us are unique and therefore I do not feel I am the expert of you and can tell you what to do, my belief is to support and guide you, with my experience to help you work through your concerns. So that you can start to feel more complete within yourself.

The first step in starting counselling can feel overwhelming, bringing past thoughts to the surface and stirring up feelings of being judged, neglect, not trusting the other. My attitude is to value you for doing the best you can. It can be tough for us at times. Let us accept us for who and how we are right now at this moment.

I have personal experiences around being judged, mental health as well as trauma, so please do not feel you are alone. Once we allow ourselves to sit with the uncomfortable feelings, we will begin to flourish.

Simon Jacobs

QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE
During my professional training, over a 6 year period, I obtained a Post Graduate Diploma and Masters Degree at The Gestalt Centre London, accredited by the London Metropolitan University. I am now an accredited psychotherapist by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and adhere to their code of ethics. I also have a Diploma in Supervision, completed in 2015.

Since training, I have worked within the NHS as a counsellor in GP surgeries and in a psychiatric hospital. I have worked as a psychotherapist at the Priory Hospital with individual clients and running therapy and psycho-educational groups for adults and adolescents on issues such as self-esteem, assertiveness and depression.

believe psychotherapy is essentially a creative process between therapist and client as I help you to find a new perspective on your life. Prior to my professional training, I worked as a designer and creative director within the advertising industry and have found this creative and artistic background an important resource as a psychotherapist.

My experience of working under the pressures of the commercial and corporate sectors in a number of different roles and of having traveled widely, have proved invaluable in my work with individuals and groups. This depth of life experience and cultural understanding is an important aspect of psychotherapy which demands an open and tolerant attitude towards a diversity of cultures, views and beliefs.

My interest in understanding how people think and behave has led to a number of written contributions to publications such as Psychologies magazine and the website, Big White Wall. I have also contributed to a number of articles featured in national newspapers which can be seen on the ‘Media/other projects’ page of this site. In January 2016 my work was featured in a TV programme about Facebook addiction called ‘On Friendship’.

HOW I WORK
I incorporate different techniques and theories tailored to suit the unique situation of each client or couple. These approaches include gestalt therapy, with its focus on the present; CBT (Cognitive behavioural therapy) to identify and challenge distorted thoughts and perspectives and psychodynamic therapy which examines the past and how it has shaped us. Mindfulness, visualisations, role plays and creative experiments are offered to enliven the process with experiential learning providing tools to use outside the sessions. This integrative approach enables the flexibility to work with many different issues and concerns.

Allison Banister

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile.

Many of us struggle to find balance in life sometimes, for a number of reasons and this can sometimes cause us pain, frustration and unhealthy patterns.
Does change feel hard? Connect with new possibilities; sometimes it can be easier with support

When I am not working, I am likely to be practising my own self-care. I began Pilates and mindfulness due to my own long term health condition and have reaped the benefits. I love nothing more, than to enjoy the peace that living by the sea or driving to the nearby countryside brings, enjoying whatever is around me. My family and friends are a hugely important part of my life and I spend as much time as possible with them.

Stuart Alderton

We live in unprecedented times. The restrictions imposed on us all to manage the spread of Covid19 have had a huge impact on society and ourselves as indivIduals. Many of us are anxious about job security and the wider impact of lockdown on the economy. There is also a collective uncertainty about the future which is affecting our relationships and our emotional well being. Many of us are isolated and finding it hard to manage our mental health and can’t access face to face therapy.

Sessions with mee will allow you to talk about your concerns about the impact of the crisis on your life and to help find a way forward as well as ease the effect of isolation.

I am experienced in both face-to-face work and online counselling and therapy.

What I offer as individual therapy has evolved into an approach which quickly gets to the heart of your issues; it offers a range of ways of working to try to accurately match your need and in the most effective and time efficient way. My approach is both friendly and warm. Therapy can often be refreshingly brief and, as far as possible, an enjoyable/rewarding experience, particularly when long standing issues have been completely resolved.

Faye Brennan

I have a BA (Hons) in Counselling & Psychotherapy. I have been practicing Person-Centred Experiential Therapy for over 3 years and I have most recently become qualified to practice clinical EFT tapping. I am currently working towards certification with ACEP (Association of Comprehensive Energy Psychology). As well as being a member with ACEP, I am also a member with the BACP so I adhere to both parties ethical framework.

As mentioned above, in my therapeutic practice I use both EFT and PCE psychotherapy. I find PCE very useful for empathic understanding as this then translates into effective EFT. By understanding the client just as if I had experienced their distress myself, I can help to formulate efficient specificity in set-up language and reminder phrases. This helps to quicken the process as the SUDS (subjective units of distress) go down much quicker, allowing for a cognitive shift meaning we can move on to the next part of my clients’ story.

I have used EFT for a number of different presenting issues such as; limiting beliefs, anxiety, depression, peak performance, childhood trauma, bereavement, PTSD, shame, guilt, addiction. The efficacy of EFT combined with PCE therapy astonishes me every time! The two therapeutic techniques work in harmony with one another and I have found that I am now able to use both with great success.

My style in session is not dissimilar to how I am in my every day life. You will be met with a warm energy every time we work together. I am caring, compassionate, a great listener and I also have a professional but fun side. More than this, I hope to be part of your journey to becoming your authentic self by being the light that guides you in your struggle.

Mariella

I am a fully qualified and experienced Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP) who works in accordance with the BACP’s Ethical framework.

I began my academic training in the field of Psychology at London Guildhall University and after extensive research on Community Mental Health Care I progressed onto a 3yr BACP accredited Postgraduate Advanced Diploma in Humanistic Integrative Counselling. I qualified in 2008 and set up in private practice.

I have worked extensively with the following:

    Children & Adolescents
    Childhood Trauma
    Depression & Anxiety
    Relationship struggles
    Family Difficulties
    Loss & Bereavement
    Anger & aggression
    Survivors of Abuse
    Sexuality & sexual differences
    Attachment Disorder
    Cultural Identity
    Suicidal Thoughts
    Cultural Identity
    Meaninglessness & futility of life
    Work/life balance
    Job loss
    Illness
    Dependency
    Self Esteem

In 2013, I undertook a Diploma in Counselling Children & Adolescents Using The Arts which allowed to me to then go on and set up and run a Counselling Service at Lea Valley Primary School and The Complete Works Alternative Provision, working with vulnerable children and adolescents.

Therefore, in addition to my private practice I have also worked as a psychotherapist in community counselling agencies such as MIND, Barnet Community Counselling and Counselling Initiatives in Islington as well as with young people at Hornsey YMCA and Whitefields Secondary School. Hence, this has therefore provided me with experience in working with children and young people of all ages.

In addition to one to one counselling I can also offer bespoke well-being and pastoral programmes which can be developed for a variety of settings from primary and secondary schools to pupil referral units.

Using some of the key elements of counselling, I am able to work with individuals, groups and whole settings whereby I seek to develop working programmes that look at areas such as conflict resolution, working with others, listening and self esteem as well as addressing specific issues identified as being significant to that particular setting.
This may include areas such as friendship, eating disorders, bullying, collaboration, peer and family pressure, puberty and addiction.

I understand my work as a counsellor to be about providing you with a non-judgemental, safe, relational space, where my role is to facilitate you in addressing past experiences and how they impact on the present, the person you are today and support you in developing a deeper awareness of how you experience yourself privately, in relationships, in the world and in the present moment in the counselling relationship.

The counselling process can enable the possibility for exploring choices and change and can also lead to greater self-understanding, heightened self-acceptance, improved relationships with others and greater control over your life.
