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.
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.
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.
