Digna Patel

Hi and thank you for visiting my page.

I know from personal experience that counselling can be quite daunting especially if it’s your first time. If you are reading this then then I am glad you have got this far 🙂

In order to work as safely as possible during the current COVID-19 outbreak, I am available for sessions using online video calling, telephone and instant messaging services. This will allow me to be more flexible in booking sessions to support your needs in this uncertain time and also means that I can offer counselling sessions if you are based anywhere in the UK. I have limited evening and daytime sessions available please get in touch for more information.

There can be a lot of uncertainty going on for us in life as it is, but due to all the other events going around us at the moment this can be increased making it harder to cope with big and small things.

I love being able to support other people! We all struggle with things, we all face difficulties and challenges and no matter how big or small counselling can be a safe space to talk more about anything that is troubling you.

Please reach out if any one of the below statements reasonates for you:

    you struggle with not feeling good enough
    you compare yourself to other people, could be on social media or people you know and it leaves you feeling unhappy or less than
    you doubt yourself a lot
    you are constantly overthinking situations or things you said
    you find it difficult to say to others
    you feel like you don’t really know who you are

Even if the above statements don’t relate to how you feel that’s okay please feel free to contact me and we can talk a bit further about how I can support you.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor this means that I use a range of varying therapeutic approaches and tools to support you and your needs. As well as my counselling training and experience I also draw on my own personal experiences and lessons that I’ve learnt along the way where relevant for you.

​​I will provide you with emotional support by offering you a warm, empathic, confidential and non-judgemental space. By offering you a different perspective it can allow you to see problems and issues in a way that you may not have noticed before. In this space you can start to gain awareness and acceptance from which healing and change can begin.

Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to book a session.

Take care and all the best on your counselling journey 🙂

Hear4U Counselling Oliver Pool

Welcome to my profile. My number one aim, passion and priority is to make a positive difference to your life. For me, counselling is a process that supports, empowers and facilitates well-being. A space that you can trust with no judgement or criticism for you to feel free to express and explore what’s important to you. I offer an empathic nurturing relationship so that you are supported to achieve your goals, whether it would be personal development and self-actualisation or to overcome distressing/traumatic events, thoughts or feelings. Attentively, I actively listen to you so I understand deeply, you and your lived experiences. I highly value your internal natural tendency for growth and development which is important to help resolve many issues such as depression and anxiety. Ultimately, I work in a way that is tailored and bespoke to you. Therefore my practice highly respects and welcomes your autonomy.

I suffer from a neuromuscular condition called SMA type II. I believe that my disability has allowed me to connect deeply with clients who have experienced injustice, judgment, and oppression in their lives. Also, to empathise with clients who have experience of being subjected to negative attitudes or stereotyping from others or society.

The most important thing to me is that you are comfortable when you are talking about personal and sensitive topics so that you are able to share without any felt consequences or regrets. If you feel that you would like to contact me to arrange a session then please do not hesitate to get in touch and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I have full indemnity insurance and have a current valid DBS enhanced certificate. (Used to be known as CRB check)

I offer online counselling to children, young adults, adults and older adults.

I offer telephone counselling to children, young adults, adults and older adults.

I do not currently offer face to face counselling.

Counselling is a unique experience in which an individual can explore, understand and accept themselves and their relationships with others. I know how having someone to turn to, to talk about how you feel can be so helpful. It can be life changing. 
We have all struggled with difficult times in our lives and had difficult emotions to try and make sense of. You are not alone.
​In my practice I will support you to know yourself better, by helping you reflect, think and feel about your experiences. I will help you grow your own self-acceptance and awareness.

Counselling London Psychotherapy

Hello, my name is Glen and I aim to bring clarity, sensitivity, and creativity to my work, with warmth, maturity and humour, offering fresh insight in supportive, affirming ways. I have an impartial perspective, working both intuitively and with knowledge. Holding a perspective of self-determination, I view therapy as joint exploration, which may include exploring our resources, strengths, qualities alongside our limitations, frailties, vulnerabilities. Recognising we are all unique, I don’t hold a “one size fits all”, tick-box approach, acknowledging that no one counselling approach explains the complexities or holds the truth for everyone.

I value each person’s uniqueness and respond in an individual way to your circumstances and at the same time appreciate the interconnectedness of what we human beings hold in common – that beneath our differences are fundamental shared experiences & central concepts, that creativity, the human heart & suffering are universal. I welcome, value and respect people’s diversity, uniqueness, autonomy.

I offer counselling and psychotherapy both online and in-person at my Camden, Kings Cross, London NW1, UK location.

Dr Simon Cassar

I am a UKCP-registered integrative existential psychotherapist with extensive experience in delivering long and short term psychotherapy to individuals and couples. I have 14 years’ experience of working therapeutically in higher education, the NHS and in private practice.

As an integrative existential psychotherapist, I am particularly interested in how we make meaning of the world and of our lives, and how this affects our day to day functioning. Experiencing a crisis of meaning can be a major source of stress and anxiety. If your life starts to feel meaningless, you may end up in a hopeless and depressed state. The therapist’s role is to support you to navigate the difficult feelings that can arise in the process and help you find renewed purpose in your life.

I combine elements from different schools in my approach to psychotherapy, including psychodynamic, humanistic, existential, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and mindfulness. I have worked with clients experiencing many different issues, including (but not limited to) anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, relationship issues and religious and spiritual matters. I am experienced in supporting team members and managers with work-based conflicts. Additionally, I have considerable experience in supporting clients with diagnosed mental health conditions, including bipolar disorder, personality disorders and clinical depression.

mysearchforself Counselling & Psychotherapy

I am passionate in helping people find a happier way of being with greater fulfillment in their life. Whatever is causing you difficulty, I believe that things can be different for you. You may feel any mix of feelings that impact your life and relationships negatively. Any are valid and, I feel, are a communication to what may be going on within. I offer compassion and understanding without any judgement in a space in which we can truly get to know what is difficult. In this space we can gently explore anything that troubles you so that we may work through any issues together, no matter how big or small you feel it is.

I work from a psychodynamic approach which explores how the person you have become today is a result of all of your past experiences and may impact how you relate to others and yourself today. Prior to private practice, I have worked within the N.H.S as an honorary psychotherapist, in Secure units and have also taught Counselling Courses.
I understand that starting this journey may feel daunting. Our work together will move at your pace and will be confidential. If you would like to start or fear starting, please call for an informal chat so that we might get a feel for each other. This way you can get a sense if I am the right therapist for you.

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!  ; )
