Mark Crow Counsellor London E8Mark Crow:

Gestalt Counsellor (BACP)

My name is Mark Crow and I’m a Gestalt counsellor in private practice working from HQ Therapy in Haggerston, Hackney. I work from a Gestalt perspective, which is one of the humanistic therapies, and I integrate other approaches into my work such as Mindfulness and Person-Centred.

There may be many factors drawing you to therapy, or a single, persistent worry. You may feel stuck, reduced to a small part of your potential. We give names such as anxiety and depression, loneliness, trauma, loss, low self-esteem, relationship problems, to our experience, yet what we mean is also unique and personal.

More than anything else, therapy is a confidential, supportive space to talk about what’s troubling you and to proceed step by step to a freer and more accepting state of mind.

As a Gestalt counsellor, I will listen and will work with you in the here-and-now. Gestalt is close in meaning to wholeness, and I will be interested in your totality as a person: thoughts, body, imagination, language, emotions. We will look at how you carry your personal history in the current moment and we will find creative ways to explore what is holding you back.

I work from the humanistic principle that we as humans are fundamentally designed to move towards health and balance. Therapy can help to free this innate wisdom.

Your choices and responsibility as an individual are paramount in our work together. I see therapy as a genuine encounter between people in-the-moment, resulting in a trusting relationship where new insights and choices can emerge.

Some of the issues I work with include anxiety, depression, identity issues, sexuality, relationship problems and trauma.

I am a registered member of the BACP, bound by their ethics and guidelines, having gained Certificate and Diploma qualifications from the Gestalt Centre in London.

MY Fees:
I charge £60 per initial consultation and per following 50-minute sessions. I am currently seeing clients face to face and online (Zoom, Skype, etc).

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.
