Lydia Sadana Person-Centred Counsellor London E8Lydia Sadana:

Person-Centred Counsellor (MBACP)

Hello and welcome. My name is Lydia Sadana and I am a Person-Centred and registered MBACP Counsellor. I have completed my training with the Metanoia Institute.

I aim to offer a confidential and non-judgemental space where I can invite you to explore what is important to you. I believe in the power of counselling and the opportunities it provides to get to know yourself in depth.

While working in line with the BACP ethical standards and framework, I hope to provide a collaborative and empathetic experience where you can work on the changes you hope to make.

I am passionate about Person-Centred counselling because I believe in the theory that teaches a way of being rather than a prescriptive manner of working with clients. This allows me to offer bespoke sessions to each client I work with and helps build a meaningful relationship between client and practitioner.

My own engagement with this style of therapy has given me a deeper understanding of human experiences and an appreciation for having a safe space to discuss matters which I felt could be discussed without shame and without the fear of being rejected or unaccepted.

For me, counselling was a way to examine and unpick why I do things and how the world around me has impacted these decisions.

I found that once you really know yourself and start to base your decisions on what you really want, you can unmask the reasons you make some decisions and hopefully continue to move through life in a happier and peaceful state.

In my experience of working with clients, I have supported them with issues relating to family, relationships, work-related concerns, religious and spiritual differences, cultural experiences, sexuality and identity, abuse, trauma and health concerns. I have also helped clients on their journey with managing feelings of anxiety, delusions, depression and suicidal tendencies.

However, if you feel there is something else you would like support with, please reach out and let’s discuss, I have experience in other areas too!

I believe you are the expert in you, but with your expertise and my in-depth experience working in a Person-Centred way, I hope we can get to a place where you feel confident in facing the challenges that life throws at you.

I look forward to welcoming whatever areas of life you wish to bring and will respect your boundaries should you feel there is anything you do not feel ready to embark on together. Importantly, the sessions will go at your pace and will not be led by me.

I look forward to supporting you on your personal journey of healing and growth.

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.
