Guy Krenger Existential TherapistGuy Krenger:

Existential Therapist (UKCP)

My name is Guy Krenger and I am an accredited existential psychotherapist working in private practice at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston and Dalston, Hackney, London E8.

Existential Therapy
I see therapy as an opportunity for you to get to know and understand yourself better. My existential and narrative therapy approach aims at assisting you in finding meaning and making sense of your life as it may be confusing at the moment.

The idea is that exploring together the impact of your present and past experiences will help you navigate the many challenges of human existence more easily. This is achieved by taking stock of your current situation, whether you are feeling lost in possibilities or stuck in patterns.

This process of wondering can enable you to open up future possibilities and discover your own way and purpose in life as you become more aware of your emotions, behaviours and resources, But also of your needs, values and aspirations, of what really matters to you.

By providing a welcoming and containing space, genuine and non-judgemental curiosity as well as various alternative philosophical or clinical perspectives, I offer to facilitate this encounter with yourself in the hope that it leads you to personal growth, increased balance and renewed self-acceptance.

About Me
Having moved to London myself about ten years ago, after extensive travelling, I am particularly interested in migration, life transition and identity issues, including the many questions posed by mixed ethnicity.

In Switzerland, I worked in a psychiatry hospital with schizophrenic and bipolar patients, which provided me with an insight into acute mental health issues. While in the UK I have offered both open-ended private therapy and short-term counselling within the NHS.

I also held different positions in public and private media, which may be why I see psychotherapy as an interview that offers you the chance to tell and reshape your own life story.

After graduating in philosophy, psychology and English literature in Switzerland, I have completed an MA in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling at Middlesex University in London.

As a registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), I work in accordance with their Code of Ethics and Professional Practice and I receive supervision on a regular basis.

I offer therapy both in English and in French.

Appointments & Fees
Please feel free to contact me to arrange an initial meeting so that we have the chance to meet, discuss your aims and explore how we can best work together should you wish to. I am currently seeing clients face to face and online (Zoom, Skype, etc).

My fees are £50-60 per session (50-55 minutes).

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.
