Helena Berg Gestalt Counsellor Hackney London E8Helena Berg:

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.

Services and fees
An initial 20-minute chat is free of charge, to answer any questions you have and to see if the way I work suits you. Please get in touch by email if you’d like to arrange this.

A 50-minute session online – £60

A 50-minute session in person – £70

I am currently working with clients both face-to-face and online.

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.
