Candy Newman Humanistic Psychotherapist.Candy Newman

Humanistic Psychotherapist (MBACP)

Hello, my name is Candy Newman and I’m an experienced, professionally trained Humanistic Psychotherapist providing weekly therapy sessions to individuals face-to-face, online and via phone from HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, London E8.

When we have the support we need, we heal, resolve many of our problems, and grow. We treat ourselves and others with greater compassion and our lives become more satisfying and fulfilling. A therapeutic relationship provides an important part of that support.

Here you will have the opportunity to be heard in a safe, confidential environment and to come to understand and appreciate yourself and your situation fully. You can share deep concerns and receive support in meeting the challenges you face. Clients describe me as a warm, empathic practitioner and I use humour and compassion in my work.

You might want to make changes, deal with painful emotions, or manage times of transitions or loss. Perhaps you would like greater self-understanding and awareness. By being receptive, open, and non-judgmental, my aim is to provide a supportive environment in which you are able to share your experience. 


This allows you to clarify your feelings, deepen your self-understanding and explore different responses to yourself and others.

In counselling you can learn to :

  • Manage stressful situations more effectively and gain a deeper sense of personal power.
  • Increase your sense of self-esteem, confidence and assertiveness.
  • Deal with challenging emotions and manage depression.
  • Develop a better understanding of yourself and communicate with others more effectively.
  • Improve your relationships with your partner, family, friends and colleagues.
  • Work with your partner in couples therapy to identify what works and what doesn’t, communicate effectively and resolve outstanding issues.
  • Grow to understand the effects of your past history and decrease any negative impact they may have in the present.
  • Acknowledge unhelpful habits and patterns in your life and create more helpful and supportive ways to live.

We will have an ongoing dialogue about the work, so you are in control of the pace and methods which you find most effective. I work with a range of therapeutic models which shed light on how we experience ourselves as individuals in my Hackney, London practice.

I am currently seeing clients face to face, online (zoom, Skype, etc) and phone.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should I Seek Therapy?

Many people, new to this type of help, believe that they need to be suffering from “mental illness” or serious “psychological problems”, or be in crisis in order for therapy and counselling to be appropriate for them. This is a common misconception; anyone can benefit from therapy when it comes to helping you deal with your personal feelings and problems, make positive changes in your life, and understand yourself better.

So what is therapy and counselling? If you’re new to this world then the first steps can sometimes be the most difficult. Therapy can be a very effective treatment for a whole range of personal problems covering areas from physical and emotional problems, different types of behavioural disorders, through to human sexuality issues and a host of wellbeing and complementary therapy techniques.

Any problem you have that is causing you concern, anxiety or distress is a valid and appropriate reason to reach out and find a therapist and talk to them about it. Far from something to be ashamed of, acknowledging your vulnerability and asking for help is a sign of maturity and strength.

If you feel that you have a desire and are committed to making changes in your life in order to overcome your current problems and achieve more long-term satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and personal fulfilment, then you are ready to seek therapy. We are here to help you work through a wide range of therapy issues that might be troubling you.

Will Information About Me Be Safe & Secure?

It is quite normal to be hesitant when it comes to sharing private and intimate information about yourself with a stranger. You may fear that you will receive judgment from your therapist, or that your therapist will share your details with others.

HQ Therapy Rooms takes your privacy and confidentiality very seriously. Our therapists are required to keep everything said in therapy sessions between you, just like your doctor is required to keep your records private.

For therapy to be effective, there must be unconditional trust built between you and your therapist, and this relies on a shared understanding of confidentiality. It applies to the outside world as well: it is standard practice for therapists not to acknowledge their clients if they run into them outside of the therapy rooms in order to help protect their client’s confidentiality. Read our full privacy policy for more information.

Can I Contact You For Advice About Getting Therapy?

Talking about your thoughts and feelings with a supportive therapist can often make you feel better and help you face your problems. It feels good to be listened to and to know that someone cares about you and wants to help. It is important that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and can build a trusting relationship to help you make positive changes in your life.

But how do you know what type of therapy is right for you? Taking the first steps in finding the right therapist can be the biggest hurdle for newcomers, so we have made it easy. Simply fill out the form below in confidence, and one of our fully qualified referral therapists can work with you to make sure you connect with the right practitioner and receive the correct therapy and counselling services you require.

Our practitioners deal with a wide range of therapy issues using different types of therapy modalities tailored for the types of clients we work with. We also cater for people who are beset with financial difficulties, offering them services ranging from low-cost therapy and reduced rate therapy, to working with seasoned, qualified and accredited talking therapists.
