Gestalt Counsellor (MBACP)
Hello, my name’s Helena Berg. I’m a Gestalt Counsellor in private practice working from HQ Therapy in Haggerston, Hackney, E8.
I am a qualified member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I have a certificate in Humanistic Counselling and a diploma in Gestalt Counselling from The Gestalt Centre London.
How I work
I offer a warm, friendly, jargon-free approach. A non-judgemental and confidential space, where you can be yourself.
A place where you don’t have to pretend.
You may already have a good understanding of what troubles you, or it may be just out of your reach.
Either way, we can work collaboratively to bring whatever is out of awareness, into focus.
This powerful shift can bring clarity and help you live your life in a more choiceful way, free to connect to yourself and others.
What is Gestalt Therapy?
Gestalt Therapy focuses on what’s happening in the here and now. How you feel, think and behave in the present, can shed light on what’s unfinished from the past or your ‘unfinished business’ as we say.
I also work relationally, with curiosity about how we relate to each other. Paying attention to what happens between us in the present, can bring into awareness your habitual patterns of relating to others.
Who I work with
Some of the issues I work with are, anxiety and depression, loneliness, grief and loss, relationship issues, low self-esteem, shame and bereavement.
Before my training at the Gestalt Centre, my years as a freelance photographer have led to an interest in working with creatives and the difficulties in the creative process.
As an Asian mixed-race therapist, another area of interest is working with cultural issues of identity, intersectionality, and the effects of racism.
